Willy’s jeep #8: Ta-da. I don’t know what else I can do. Je suis complète

08-04-2019 10:40 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 1 comment »

So, finally, I am done. I had several goals in mind when I started this project. The first was to build a Jeep and give it color and parts that provided a worn look. Second, was to interject different mediums to add a hint of detail without losing the overall wood appearance. I am certain there are pure of heart wood modelers who are cringing at the sight and cursing my name. But what the heck, I haven’t been much for boxes; they clutter my shop. Third, I wanted to make some functional parts...

Willy’s jeep #6: It’s not the top, but I finally made progress.

04-15-2019 11:09 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 2 comments »

I am glad to note, I made progress. Still hopeful I can work in the functioning top. The goal here was to add some color and different textures without completely losing the wood. At the same time, I wanted to add some details and create a worn crudeness to the overall look. A few things I would do differently, a few mistakes, but alas; I own it now. Where it all started; the shovel and axe.

Willy’s jeep #5: Prototype support system for canvas top

03-27-2019 07:26 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 3 comments »

Ok, this is why it takes me so long to build these things. I am constantly fudging around and I am afraid to clue anything. Because my best efforts to make the system hardware out of wood completely failed, I settled on other options. I am concerned I am getting too many textures and the hardware is over sized. After some toying, I see I am not likely going to be able to combine stowing and mounting. So, I am going to have to make it mount in the back. Any thoughts would be welcomed...

Willy’s jeep #1: Axe and shovel

02-24-2019 08:26 AM by FrenchGoattoys | 3 comments »

I have decided to build a WWII Jeep. Oddly enough, I, uncharacteristically for most, started with accessories, to wit: the shovel and the axe. I like to mix mediums in my projects. Ergo, instead of wood, I forged the shovel spade, handle, and axe blade from tin. I used solder to fill in the gaps of the folded tin, which also allowed for additional shaping. After cutting out the general shape, I shaped most of the items with a file. On the folded axe blade I was able to use a grinder to ...

I did a little more this weekend. Actually I did a lot. Don’t pay attention to the wheels. They are the next thing I’m going to work on, then the 50 cal. By the way, what should I put on the wood? I have Tung oil, Danish oil and linseed oil. I can’t decide.

Jeep from Toys and Joys

12-24-2012 12:55 PM by Dutchy | 6 comments »

A few weeks ago I bought a plan from toys and joys, after I had seen the beautiful car of Woodscraphttp://lumberjocks.com/projects/74421” Before I ordered I asked T and J if it was also in metric measerment, but unfortunately that wasn.t. When I got it I first changed measerment. I can really not understand what the benefits are off fractional measerment. SORRY ! At my request Woodscrap was so kind to send me 6 fotos,s in a high quality. For so far I know is the Jeep a FORD? So I...
