Well I’m finally done with the Jeep. I saw the same jeep on a different forum site and the M3 antitank gun looked really cool. Couldnt find any plans so I built the gun based off of pictures I found online. This was a fun built. I actually took my time and added a whole lot of details. Now my son wants one. Haha, only if he knew what goes into these models.

Very cool.

I am in the process of restoring a 1947 version of the Willys Jeep CJ2A. I also have a 1952 version of the M100 1/4 ton trailer that I took on the Rubicon trail this past summer.

Sadly, I do not have an M3 antitank gun.

Nice work.

A very fine model in all aspects. Making your own “plans” always feels good too.

One of the best models I’ve seen anywhere. You have a talent for building models. When I started woodworking many years ago, I was making furniture and other “practical” items. Building models is now my no.1 hobby. I find it just as fulfilling as building a household full of furniture, maybe more so.

thanks guys for all the kind words. I would have to say I’ve been woodworking since wood shop back in my high school days about 25 yrs now and I love making models more than anything. I would have to agree with MrRon, it is pretty fulfilling.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
