Willys Jeep / 1:25 / Modelik 10-02

Hi all,

This is the second time I participate in a German Forum. It is possible that there are some rules that I don’t know so, if you find that I broke some rule, please let me know. It is not my intention to be ill-mannered, but my ignorance about them.

For example, in the Spanish Forum I have used some pictures of the real model, the pictures are not mine but taken from Internet. In the Spanish Forum there is no problem using these pictures, but I don’t know if I can use them here at Kartonbau.de, so I have opted to not include them. But if I can, tell me and I will include them.

Well, enough with the introduction, and let’s this project go. This time it is called to pass through my workshop the Willys Jeep from Modelik.

Historical frame
The history of the Jeep begins the 11 of 1940 July when the Army of the EE.UU summoned 135 car manufacturers to participate in the contest to design a hybrid vehicle of adaptable general intention to recognition missions and control. 49 days were granted to them to present/display the proposals of design and 75 to make the first 70 prototypes.
Only three companies accepted American Bantam Car Company, Ford Motor Company and Willys-Overland Motors and of them, Bantam was the unique one that was able to display a vehicle of test in 49 days and models of production in 75.
Nevertheless due to the precarious economic situation of Bantam, the Government of the EE.UU decided that this one yielded the planes to the other two companies and in November of 1940 these displayed their own prototypes, which turned out to be very similar, reason why 1,500 units were in charge of test to each one.
In July of 1941 it adjudged to Willys the order of 16,000 units of his design, mainly, to the greater power of his motor. Nevertheless in October of 1941 it was evident that single Willys could not satisfy the demand of units of the vehicle, reason why also the production of the model was in charge to Ford.
During the World War II, Willys produced 363,000 units and Ford 280.000. Approximately 51,000 of these vehicles were exported to Russia based on the Lend-Lease program, which was the denomination under which enormous amounts of military equipment were provided to the allies of EE.UU.

Where comes from the Jeep word?
There are different histories about the origin from the Jeep term. One talks about to that Ford used denomination GP for his first models of this vehicle. And in English initials GP they are possible to be read like Jeep. Another history talks about to that the soldiers during the World War I denominated “jeep” to the inexperienced recruits who had still not received formation or to any piece of equipment that had still not passed the burn in. Still another history talks about to its origin in “Eugene the Jeep” a personage who accompanied Popeye and that was able to cross rivers, to raise mountains, etc. The soldiers gave this denomination to the new vehicle by their impressive similar capacities.

and after this historical review, in Picture 1 I show the model to you. It is notebook 2002 10 from Modelik.

This is all at this moment, more to come soon.

Bye.

Hello to all,

I am very happy to participate at the Forum with this build. Now I am beginning with the assembly of the model.

In Picture 2 you can see already cut all the pieces that will compose the vehicle’s frame. In Picture 3 the four pieces which the longitudinal stringers of vehicle frame consist are sticking (front and back).

2. 3.

In Pictures 4, 5 and 6, once droughts the stringers, I come to stick the two longitudinal strips that cover them. You can see that I have painted green all the edges of the paper, the surface of the stringers and the edge of the strips. In this occasion, and unlike with the Kettenkrad, I have found a marker that looks like the green printed original color.

4. 5. 6.

In Picture 7 you can see the stringers with the strips both front and back. In Pictures 8 and 9 also mounted the crosspieces that will compose the vehicle’s frame.

7. 8. 9.

Next the frame is due to mount; it is necessary to join the stringers with the crosspieces. This is a very difficult job and I think that I have found a very easy method to fix all the pieces.

Tell me what it seems to you, please. More to follow soon.

Greetings.

Hello to all,

Next you can see how it is the device that I have improvised, more cheap impossible. A synthetic cork base of which is protected any electronic device and a few needles. I have used needles of modelism, but any others can do. The synthetic cork comes always perfectly smooth and flat. In Pictures 10 and 11 different views of the initial disposition. Both lateral of the frame already “nailed” with the needles to the synthetic cork. I have taken the separation measures with the crosspieces and I have aligned them with a small metallic rule.

10. 11.

In Picture 12 the crosspieces of the ends are sticking. And in Picture 13 also the third crosspiece is sticking. Finally in Picture 14 you can see the frame with the glue dry, on the work table. Incredible! Easier impossible, it has been perfectly aligned and without torsion, the four ends touch all flat on the table.

12. 13. 14.

The emotion that I have felt when I have been unnailing the needles, I have removed the frame from the “shipyard” and have seen that it was perfectly aligned, has been one I never will forget.

Please tell me what it seems to you.

Greetings.

Hi Lluis,

I would use real cork board and marking pin for sewing but yours is better because your needle will not leave dent on model surface.

Thank you for your tip and your build is really good so far and I am looking forward seeing the progress.

Hello companions,

Yu, Wiesel, Eatcrow2, thank you for your kind words.

Here I am again with another progress on the Willys Jeep. This time is the piece that holds the hook of tow to the frame of the vehicle and the two back crossbows; I leave the front crossbows for the coming day. On Picture 15 you can see the parts that compose the subjection piece of the hook. And on Picture 16 the piece already mounted, ready to be beaten to the frame. On Pictures 17, 18 and 19 different views from the frame with the piece glued.

15. 16.

17. 18. 19.

On Picture 20 the different pieces that compose a crossbow already cut. These are of one of the back crossbow; the front ones have some pieces more. On Picture 21 already I have stuck the strips that form the pyramid, on them the two final pieces that lack one with the coiled ends that are the subjections of the crossbow and the other that is the top cover. The 1 mm cardboard piece is the “mold” on which they are formed the pieces that compose each crossbow, to obtain that typical “doubled” form of the automobile crossbows. On Picture 22 the crossbow already has all the stuck pieces and I have also painted them. In this case I have used a black marker. The four pieces of each side are the ring of subjection of the pieces of the crossbow. On Picture 23 I have already stuck those rings to the crossbow and on Picture 24 I have painted everything with the black marker.

20. 21.

22. 23. 24.

On Pictures 25 and 26 I show to you the assembly of the second crossbow with other steps different from first, so that its building process will be better understood.

25. 26.

And on Pictures 27 and 28 you can see the second crossbow held with the needles, so that the openings of the ends are to the same distance and are of the same diameter.

27. 28.

I hope that the explanations are interesting to you and that you will say what it seems to you.

Greetings, bye.

Hello to all:

Here I am with more of the same. More crossbows. This time is the front crossbows. These have four pieces plus each one and somewhat greater difficulty at the time of sticking them to the frame.

On Picture 29, you can see all the pieces that compose the two front crossbows. To the left of the Photography also are those that conform the shock absorbers, those are the pieces of green color. In Pictures 30 and 31 a crossbow already mounted with two different views so that you prune to appreciate well the form in which I have stuck with them.

29. 30. 31.

On Picture 32 two crossbows already mounted and placed in the pins so that the distances and diameters of the holes of their ends are equal. And On Picture 33 two finished crossbows with the edges partially painted.

32. 33.

On Picture 34 you can see how I stick the strips that are going to become retaining rings of each crossbow. Soon I am coiling each strip on itself. On Picture 35 I already have finished with the rings of one crossbow. On Picture 36 and 37 both crossbows almost finished and painted.

34. 35. 36. 37.

On Picture 38 you can see the small pieces that constitute the subjection of the crossbows to the frame. On Picture 39 I have painted with the green marker the edges of all those pieces and On Picture 40 the finished assembly of crossbows and the pieces of subjection.

38. 39. 40.

On Picture 40, the first crossbow beginning by above does not have the edges of the rings painted, I realized this when I was seeing this picture, something that I corrected immediately with the black marker.

Sometimes there is not much variety in posts, but it is this how our hobby is, correct? With many repetitive works you secure spectacular results… well, sometimes ;).

This is everything at the moment. Until the next one.

Greetings.

Hello buddies,

A tiny step for this modelist that writes… but a great passage for… well, I am modest; in fact it is a great passage for me, because this one is which I have trimmed all the small pieces that hold the crossbows to the frame and is that they are many and very small. That is, that today I have made a major step in the construction of the Willys Jeep.

On Picture 41 you can see the pieces in its original format. I have to double them on themselves and to stick them, as it often happens in this type of models, so that they have the suitable thickness. You observe the piece 7th that is on that I go to show the process of cuts that I follow.

41.

On Picture 42 you can see four pieces in different phases from the trimmed one. The first on the left I have still not trimmed it by any side. I have trimmed the second by both long sides and I have made him a straight cut in its two close ends. The result is which now we have a piece that has the suitable measures, but that have the straight corners. And now the work comes really, because it is to turn that quadrilateral into a piece with the round corners.

42.

What I do is that as you see in Picture 43 a little bit closer, I have already trimmed to the second piece one of the corners, and to the pieces third and fourth the four corners. I obtain it with a magnifying glass and a lot of patience. I am making small straight cuts consecutive. I attempt that in each corner enters as minimum three cut (bad) and up to five (better) if it is possible. As the hand not always works equal, sometimes I fit three, sometimes four and sometimes up to five, that is the optimal thing. What I am for is, like you can see in Picture 44, the piece on the right, which is placed on backs to the printing, appears with the round corners. This is the most difficult part, if it looks round, is that total success has been had, if some cut appears too straight, then that’s bad.

43. 44.

This it is the process that I have followed with all the pieces on Picture 41 and you can see the result in Picture 45 where you can see all the trimmed pieces of the front crossbows with the round corners.

45.

This I have done also for the back crossbows, that is that, although today do not see a spectacular progress, the truth is that it was a lot of work. I do not show the other pieces to don’t bore you.

Tomorrow I will show a little more. So long and good cuts and patches to all.

Greetings.

Hello companions,

Today are called on to stick the pieces that hold the crossbows to the frame. Those so small pieces that I presented to you before. On Picture 46 you can see how I have superposed the crossbow to the original design to verify that the small tensions are with the suitable inclination. I have made a hole to all the pieces and although I am not going to use through axes, but glue, I have used a wire as guide to make sure that all the pieces were aligned. On Pictures 47 and 48 you can see another phase of the patch of these pieces.

46. 47. 48.

On Pictures 49 and 50 I am placing in its site the crossbow already with the stuck tension to stick the pieces of subjection to the frame. And in Picture 51 you can see how I have followed the same procedure with the other crossbow. Finally on Picture 52, the eight pieces stuck in its site and hoping to stick the crossbows to them.

49. 50.

51. 52.

That is everything at the moment. More coming soon.

Greetings.

Hello to all,

Now it has been called on to stick the crossbows to the frame. As you can see on Picture 53 I have stuck all the small pieces that will hold the crossbows. And I show the plus pieces that form the front crossbows. On Picture 54 I have stuck all those pieces to the crossbows.

53. 54.

On Pictures 55 and 56 I am checking the fit of all the pieces in its place on the frame. I help myself with small wires to make sure that everything is aligned. And on the Picture 57 all the crossbows are stuck in their place on the frame.

55. 56. 57.

Next I am heading to the shock absorbers.

Bye.

Hello companions,

Now for the shock absorbers, and although they are very simple pieces, once trimmed, coiled and beaten in its site, they are very showy and they give personality to the frame.

On Picture 58 you can see the three pieces that compose each shock absorber, on Picture 59 a shock absorber with the coiled and stuck pieces. And on Picture 60 the first shock absorber already stuck in its place in the frame. In order to simulate the screws that hold the shock absorber to the frame I have used small sticks trimmed and painted of black. Now I believe that the next time I will use some metal piece, because it seems to me that they could have been better.

58. 59. 60.

On Picture 61 the back shock absorbers are glued, on Picture 62 both forwards shock absorbers already mounted and on Picture 63 both forwards shock absorbers glued in his place.

61. 62. 63.

On Pictures 64 and 65 two close views of the back and front shock absorbers and on Pictures 66 and 67 two views of the complete frame with the shock absorbers glued.

64. 65. 66. 67.

Tell me what it seems to you. The following things are the axes of the wheels. Those parts have a pile of pieces and little pieces.

Well, that's everything at this moment.

Greetings.

Hello to all.

Here I am again with some more works done with the Willys Jeep.

In Picture 68 I show to you all the pieces that compose the axis of the back wheels. The forward is equal, but with some more pieces. In Picture 69 I have already stuck the axis on a trimmed small stick. The small sticks exactly have 2 mm of diameter that is what it is requested in the instructions of assembly. And also you can see the conical piece that represents the gear of transmission of the movement of the engine to the wheels. In Picture 70 I have already stuck the rest of pieces and also painted the edges with the green marker.

68. 69. 70.

In Picture 71 I have stuck the conical piece and the axis that goes to the engine, to the axis of the wheels and also the piece that simulates the cover of the gear of the transmission. In Picture 72 you see that I already have stuck the lateral reinforcements of the transmission and the back covers of the box of gears and in Picture 73 you can also see glued the diagonal reinforcements.

71. 72. 73.

Picture 74 is another overall view of the work carried out until now. In Picture 75 it is possible to be seen stuck in his place the cover of the gears. And in Picture 76 it is seen other piece of the fixation of the wheels, that are for a forthcoming session.

74. 75. 76.

To cut the round pieces of the box of gears has been everything a challenge, reason why in next post I am going to put step by step how I came to cut those pieces. I hope that it is of good help to someone.

That is everything at the moment.

Greetings and until the next one.

Hi to all,

Before the sequence where I show how to cut the round pieces with cutter, a small update on the works with the front axis.

In Picture 77 a view of the axis to lack only the cover of the gears box. In Picture 78 the same axis with the cover already in its place.

77. 78.

More coming soon,

Bye.

Hello all,

As I promised to you, next I show a sequence of pictures (79 to 87) in to which, step by step, is seen how I come to cut a round piece with inner and outer curves and two intrusions. These two last ones are especially difficult to cut. Because the Pictures speak by themselves, I have not written any commentary about them.

79. 80. 81.
82. 83. 84.
85. 86. 87.

I hope that this sequence is going to be of utility to somebody.

Hello to all,

These three pictures complement the previous serie. In Picture 88 can be seen the piece by the front part, if you magnify it a lot, you will see that the inner contour of the piece is a series of smallest incisions following (the part that is had to drain, noticeable as always with the letter w in the Polish models). In Picture 89 the same piece by the part of back. In this it is seen clearly the incisions that I have done from the front face with the cutter and which they have crossed the piece. And in Picture 90 the piece with the central part already separated. In this one the sign of incisions in all their contour can be seen clearly.

88. 89. 90.

If the piece is very thin, like in the series of previous post (Pictures 79 to 87), a single incision crosses the piece, in this case (Pictures 88 to 90) the piece was stuck on a cardboard of 1 mm, reason why, once made the incisions by a face I completed them with incisions done from the other side, until the central piece followed.

I hope that with this second series the procedure of cuts is still clearer.

You will say to me if it is well explained.

Greetings.

Hello to all,

This time there isn’t much to explain. Tedious works where they are. First the engraving and soon the sidebands of the tires. And following, all the pieces that compose them. Altogether around 80 pieces. I assure to you that it is a heavy work, but soon has its rewards, because I believe that these tires have all the numbers to look very well.

In Pictures 91 and 92 you can see different phases to cut the inner curved part of the engraving.

91. 92.

In Pictures 93 and 94 a strip of engraving in process and finished and in the Picture 95 the five strips of the tires finished.

93. 94. 95.

The same for the sidebands. Picture 96 just shows a cut band to you. In this case I used the scissors. Very small ones with the end doubled towards a side. They go very well, but it is necessary to go little by little, taken care to perfectly follow the printed line without going out. One leaves the sight and the patience in this task. In Picture 97 all the bands already cut.

96. 97.

And tachan, tachan!, in Picture 98 all the pieces that compose the tires already cut.

98.

Soon I will show you the progress on these.

Greetings and until soon companions.

Hello companions,

This past Easter my mother has passed away. Although she was an elder person and with a serious disease, my father and my brothers, we did not hope that the outcome was so fast. As you may understand I have been totally demoralized and still I feel bad, very bad. Nevertheless my mother liked everything that we do, is for that reason that I have committed myself to continue the construction of the Willys Jeep, and want to dedicate this model to her.

Because of this I follow with the next steps. Now about the volume of the lateral of the tires, I have tried with a wire to fill them. And thus I have come with the first wheel, the one of spare part. This is a little different from the others, because it has an open central hole, something that the other four don’t, because they simulate that in center they have the axis of the wheels.

In Photo 99 I have stuck to the tread band the piece that serves to unite both ends and in Photo 100 they are sticking both extremes.

99. 100.

In Photo 101 the band of first tread to the lateral one of cardboard is sticking and in Photo 102 the lateral second is sticking. In Photo 103 already the first inner tape of paper is placed. Here three layers of paper go each with a smaller width.

101. 102. 103.

In Photo 104 the rest of pieces are seen that are going to form this wheel. In Photo 105 I already have stuck the other two strips of paper that go inside the tire as well as the three round pieces that serve to hold the wheel to the axis. You observe that all the edges are painted with their respective colors.

104. 105.

In Photo 106 can be seen the lateral one of the tire which I have given form with my fingers and a metal piece with the round end and the wire that I am going to use to try to maintain the concave form of the lateral. In Photo 107 I have already stuck (just by three points of glue) the wire to the lateral of the tire. And in Photo 108 the outer side of the lateral of the tire is sticking to the cardboard base. You can observe that the inner part is raised because I am still not sticking it. This is to forcing the paper on the one side so that it sticks better. And in Photo 109, I help myself with a plastic tube of the same inner diameter that the tire, to help to maintain the form of the lateral of the tire, while this one sticks. And…

106. 107. 108. 109.

… objective attained, in Photo 110 you can see the tire with the sidebands with its CONCAVE FORM. For the other lateral I came with the same procedure and in Photo 111 you can see the result.

110. 111.

In Photo 112 I am beginning to stick the piece with the engraving of the tire beginning by the center and in Photos 113 and 114 you can see how I have been turn and sticking the strips of the lateral.

112. 113. 114.

Finally the tire finished in Photos 115, 116, 117 and 118 by all the sides.

115. 116. 117. 118.

Well, this is the first tire that I do and really the result has left me very satisfied. I hope you will already say what it seems to you.

Hello companions,

In this session I have progressed with the other four wheels. As soon as you put yourself to produce in chain, the things go more express, although in this case and by the amount of pieces that each wheel has, it has not been as fast as I was expecting. In any case, here is the process of building the four wheels.

In Photo 119 you can see the pieces that compose each disc of subjection of the tire to the axis (I don't know its technical name). And in Photos 120, 121 and 122 different phases of the assembly of these pieces.

119. 120. 121. 122.

In Photo 123 I have stuck the hoops that form the cover of the tire. And in Photos 124 and 125 I have stuck to those hoops the cardboard discs that form the faces inner and outer of the wheels.

123. 124. 125.

In Photo 126 I already have stuck the first band that forms the internal hoop of the tire and I am sticking the second band. In Photo 127 I am sticking the third band that forms the internal hoop of the tire. Like almost always in this hobby, divide and rule. What I have done is to be sticking these bands little by little, because I stuck the first one in one go and it was difficult to me. This time I have been putting glue in parts of the band and centering it as I was gluing it. For that reason in the photos you can see that the band is outside (tell me if I explain it well). Finally I have to place the discs that I mounted in Photos 119 to 122 in the center of each tire. And you can see the result in the Photo 128.

126. 127. 128.

Well the tires are ready for the inner wires, the lateral covers and the engraving.

I leave it for the forthcoming session that I will try tomorrow.

Until then, greetings to all.

Hello to all,

Thank you Royaloakmin. Yes in my construction reports I try to be as exahustive as I can. I try to show you what problems I have found and the way I have resolved them. Sure there will be other ways, I am an absolute beginner, but the ones I show have worked for my.

And today the end of the wheels. As I promised to you yesterday, today I have finished the wheels of the Willys. I have decided to do a step upper and to begin to paint some elements. Therefore I have taken the brush, acrylic paintings of Vallejo and following you will see the result. Now no longer I only paint the edges of the paper, but also whole pieces.

In Photo 129 you can see the instruments that I have used to give round form to the edges of the wheels: a recycled kitchen sponge and the round part of a cutter. I energetically mop the piece of the edge of the wheel by all their circumference with the round part of the cutter, against the sponge. It is a good method and you can see the result of the work in Photo 130, all the edges of the wheels with its round form.

129. 130.

In Photo 131 you can see the wheels with the stuck wires on the laterals. And in Photo 132, I have already stuck the lateral pieces of the wheels in its places on the wires. I begin gluing first the outer part, for that reason, in Photo 133, you can see that the inner part of the lateral piece is raised.

131. 132. 133.

In Photo 134 I am sticking the inner part with the aid of an “unexpected device”. And in Photo 135 I already have also stuck the inner part of the lateral of the tires. There are things that are only seen in the photographies, and seeing this last (135) I took in account that when taking the wheel of the left, had taken off the central piece, is the white track that can be appreciated in that wheel in the photography. So quickly I returned it to place in its site and in Photo 136 you can see the tires correctly finished.

134. 135. 136.

And you will ask yourselves why they only appear three tires in the photographies, when there are five. The explanation is that, while waiting that the wheels were dried, I was painting of black the other two tires. The first one did not have left very well, but with the second I improved the technique and you can see the final result in the sequence of Photos that goes from the 137 to the 142. All the tires painted. Say to me if they do not seem of rubber.

137. 138. 139.
140. 141. 142.

Well, with this session I finish the tires of the Willys. The balance is positive. They have not been as I would have liked, but I believe that I have learned many techniques that did not know and that from now on I will use in other elements of the Willys. Most important is the one to paint some of the paper pieces.

You will say to me what it seems to you.

Up to soon.

Greetings.

Hello everybody,

This time it is the turn of the radiator. But before entering the details of it, in Photo 143 you can see the different pieces that are to have majors thicknesses that those of the paper on which they come printed, glued to cards of different thicknesses. This is to illustrate this normal procedure in the construction of our models, but that surprised much to me at the first model which I constructed. The radiator is a simple part that only has 18 pieces. In Photo 144 you can see the pieces that the radiator consists.

143. 144.

In Photo 145 you can see how I have begun to stick the strip that unites the two pieces that form the radiator. As always, it is better to stick each lateral one behind the other, to assure a correct positioning and gluing of the pieces. In Photo 146 I am sticking the lateral strip and also you can see the frontal grill of the radiator with the four pieces already stuck. In Photo 147 the back grill is already stuck and I am sticking the frontal. In order to guarantee the correct separation between both pieces I am utilising the modelism pins that already I have used (Photos 10 to 14) and that have the correct diameter.

145. 146. 147.

In Photo 148 you can see the "improvised subjection" system with two plastic boxes, to hold the air conduct of the radiator (by the way, the pieces that you can see inside the box on the left, are pieces already cut of the engine). In Photo 149 you can see the radiator already finished.

148. 149.

In Photo 150 I show to you the air conduct outside the "press" and the radiator by the face where the air conduct goes glued. And in Photos 151, 152 and 153 different views from the finished radiator.

150. 151. 152. 153.

That is everything at the moment. Now it is the turn of the engine, a really complicated part that has around 100 pieces.

I will keep you informed.

Greetings to all.

Hello companions,

More progresses with the Willys Jeep. Now it is the turn of the engine… and that part is very difficult. As I commented to you, they are around 100 pieces in a volume of 5 x 2 x 3 cm (more or less) so you can imagine the work that takes that all.

As it is a long process I am going to post in the same steps that I am following to build it. First is the center body of the engine, where the cylinders lodge. In Photo 154 you can see some of the pieces.

154.

In Photos 155 and 156 the assembly of that central body. As always, I am sticking the parts little by little to facilitate to position the elements correctly. In the Photo 157 three pieces of the central part of the motor are already finished.

155. 156. 157.

In Photo 158, you can see the pieces that go in the back part of the engine. And in the Photo 159 those pieces already glued. I realized that the two circular pieces on the low part of the photo, is necessary to stick them one against another being taken care that the drawings in them are perfectly horizontal. This resulting piece is the one that there is to beat to the piece that in the photo appears labeled like 15i.

158. 159.

And finally, in Photo 160 you can see a bunch of the pieces of the engine ready to by glued.

160.

It will follow the piece that represents the box of transmission of the traction to the four wheels.

Greetings to all.

Greetings companions,

And now, the transmission box. As you can see in Photo 164 this part of the motor is made up of 17 pieces. But we go by parts and let’s begin by the beginning. In Photo 161 you can see that I have begun to mount the piece that serves to stick the box of transmission to the block of the motor. This box must be glued by the edges, without lapels, and as I encounter very difficult to stick paper edge against edge, I added lapels of my own harvest to him. It is the white tongue-piece that excels from the interior. In Photo 162 I am using another “improvised” tool as press and in Photo 163, the box already finished. One of the edges of the box is round what makes it more difficult.

161. 162. 163.

In Photo 164, you can see the 17 pieces that compose the transmission box.

164.

In Photos 165, 166 and 167 you can see how I am joining pieces with others.

165. 166. 167.

And in Photos 168, 169 and 170 I am uniting the pieces that form the transmission. If I had not used the method “step by step” to stick this last one, I could not have done, it since this piece has a crack that can only be mounted if it is done “step by step”.

168. 169. 170.

In Photos 171 and 172, you can see the final touches at this part of the transmission box.

171. 172.

And in photos 173, 174, 175 and 176 this part already finished. You can see that it is very elaborated!

173. 174. 175. 176.

Finally, in Photos 177, 178 and 179 already I have also stuck the piece of union to the block of the motor.

177. 178. 179.

Uuuuufffff, finally it has been finished… but, a lot is left with this motor!

Follow been in tune because it comes more sessions like this one.

Greetings.

Hello companions,

Here I am with the engine and that is a very difficult part. The engine is by itself almost a complete model. But in addition one very complicated that has put my patience on approval. Nevertheless, with many difficulties and problems, but I believe that in the end I am being able to solve them. Although for another occasion, I will have learned many things that are going to be very useful to me.

And now we go on the commentary of the photos, that these time are many.

In Photo 180 you can see the pieces that comprise front and back of the engine. Those that communicate the ventilation of the radiator and the box of transmission reduction. In Photo 181 I have stuck the piece that will form the transmission of the refrigeration of the radiator and in Photos 182 and 183 I have stuck the piece that is united to the box of transmission and the crankcase.

180. 181. 182. 183.

Photos 184, 185 and 186 are different views of the engine at this stage of the work.

184. 185. 186.

Photo 187 shows how I have made the holes that will lodge the different pieces that will form the ventilation of the radiator. And in the Photo 188 different pieces already made. The carburetor top at the right, to its side I imagine that it is the dynamo and underneath the connector of spark plugs and one of the discs that the fan belt will cross.

187. 188.

In Photos 189, 190, 191 and 192 different phases from the assembly of the piece than must represent the electrical engine of diesel engine start-up.

189. 190. 191. 192.

In Photos 193, 194, 195, 196, 197, 198 and 199 also you can see different phases from assembly of the piece that connects the carburetor with the cylinders. The two square boxes and the triangular box, although I do not show it here, are stuffed of squared card pieces, because there was no way to obtain that the boxes had the square form. I even filled up the angled one with different card pieces that had the triangular form. And some views of the finished piece (198 and 199).

193. 194. 195.
196. 197. 198. 199.

In Photo 200 a view of the engine with the different pieces that I have beaten until this moment to the body.

200.

And finally, in Photo 201 you can see how I use the tweezers to hold the pieces that form the carburetor and in the Photos 202 and 203 two views of this last one already finished.

201. 202. 203.

Well, this is everything at the moment, and it’s not little. Now I already face the final straight line of the engine. I hope to finish it in some days. I will maintain informed you about the progresses.

Greetings.

Hi to everybody,

Yu-san, thank you for the kind words, they really push me to do better.

And now new advances on the engine, but this time it is a very important one, because I only have left to place the carburetor and the ventilator of the radiator and its strap.

In this occasion I have placed the connections that go until the spark plugs. They are cables and there I have complicated my life excessively, because it wanted to use electrical thread, yes or yes, and it had far better gone to me to use any other material simpler to handle. The result at view, is that the cables are too heavy, nevertheless for me has been a lesson of many techniques and patience.

Between the techniques there is the one to harden pieces of paper with cyanocrilate. I had read about this technique in some Forums, but I had never proven it. And I think it works very well. Although it is necessary to go with care, because this glue beats even the skin and in addition it smells very bad.

But enough with the introduction and we happen to comment the session of photographies.

In Photo 204 you can see the hoops that simulate the connections of electrical cables to the body of the engine. On the paper is already a hoop finished and passed through cyano, and in the pin beaten with the usual glue, the three remaining pieces. In Photo 205 I already have coiled and stuck the three pieces on the pin. And in Photo 206 I am giving them the bath on cyano to harden them. The reason for it is because it seemed to me that if these pieces were not really hard, when I stuck the cables, they were going to deform.

204. 205. 206.

In Photo 207 I already have stuck the four pieces to the superior part of the engine. You can observe while, that in successive photographies, I am sticking some new pieces to the engine body. In Photo 208 I also have made the five pieces that go on the dynamo, all also hardened with cyano.

207. 208.

And in photos 209, 210, 211, 212 and 213 you can see how I have been placing five cables in its respective lodgings. The truth is that now I would not return to do it in this form, but as I said to you it has served to me to practice new techniques, to use new materials and, mainly, to take much patience, because I assure to you that it was not far from easy to obtain that the cables stayed at their place.

209. 210. 211.

212. 213.

Finally, in Photos 214 and 215 you can see two views of the engine at the end of these works, with all the cables in its place.

214. 215.

Well that is everything at the moment, we will see if now I begin to take a little more speed on the build.

Until very soon.

Greetings to all.

Lluis, if you can obtain acrylic floor wax, sometimes sold as "Kleer" in Europe, you can use that to harden small parts yet they will stay flexible.

Awesome work =D>

Hello companions,

Royaloakmin, thank you for your advise I will try, and for your kind words, you know that during a build they are very helpful.

And finally… I have finished the engine. Already it was time! Because it has been difficult to me.

Next I tell you how they have been the last steps. In Photo 216 I have already placed the ventilator of the radiator. As axis I have used a needle of those of seam that I have trimmed. In Photo 217 I have stuck the dynamo and in Photo 218 I have stuck the last inferior wheel and I am sticking the strap that unites all. As always, step by step the pieces stick better. I began by above and I went sticking the strap to each wheel, one behind another one, hoping to that each was dried. In Photo 219 you can see the strap and the wheels already placed.

216. 217. 218. 219.

Finally, in Photos 220, 221, 222 and 223, shows the finished engine with all the stuck elements, including the carburetor and the reducing box, from four different angles.

220. 221. 222. 223.

Well, that is everything so far. I do not know if what comes is going to be as laborious as this that I have finished. I believe that no, and so I hope that I can accelerate the construction of the Willys. Although one is in a hobby, I am in a hurry to begin some new model.

Greetings to all and until soon.

Hi buddies,

Now with the body. It has taken a little more than I thought, because this part is not as entertained as the engine, but it also has many pieces.
In Photo 224 you can see a part of the pieces that compose the frame of the body, cut coarsely and, those that needed it, beaten to cardboards of the corresponding thicknesses. It is necessary to fold other pieces and stick them on themselves, like the numbered 27n, down to the right. In the Photo 225 the same pieces of the Photo 224, but all cut to its respective sizes and ready for the assembly. I have done also the cleaved (I don’t know if the correct word is cleaved or scored, but you understand what I mean, right?) in the pieces that needed it, before cutting them.

224. 225.

In Photo 226 I have begun to stick the pieces that form the inferior frame of the body. And in Photo 227 I have stuck the frame to the base of the body. You may see that before sticking the pieces, I have folded all them. During the patch many of them lose the form, but as they already have the cleaved, it does not take as much that they take the final form.

226. 227.

In Photo 228 I am sticking the frontal part of the frame and in Photos 229 and 230, I am sticking the pieces that comprise that frontal part, with its vertical reinforcements.

228. 229. 230.

In Photo 231 I am sticking the lateral interiors of the body and already there, I am preparing the “wings” than will be the mudguard. You observe that, as always, I stick the pieces little by little, so that it is easier to me, on the one hand, to align them, and on the other, to fold them so that they take the final form. And in Photo 232, I am sticking the inferior back part of the frame. Also I come step by step. In this case I have stuck the part of the bottom before the fold, and soon, I will stick the folded and the final part of this piece, the one that is more down in the Photo.

231. 232.

Tomorrow, I hope, I will follow with the assembly of the body.

Until then, greetings to all.

Hello companions,

Today I bring new advances at the Willys.

In Photo 233 I am sticking the two “wings” that will be the superior part of the mudguard of the Jeep. As always, I will not get tired to repeat it, it is better to come step by step. Thus, with these pieces I have begun sticking the tongue-piece inferior to the relief that, in that zone, has the ground of the chassis. As you see, the other parts of the two pieces are still “on the air”. Once dry, I have continued sticking the other parts, as you can see in Photo 234.

233. 234.

In Photo 235 I am preparing the piece that constitutes the back part of the Willys, with its reinforcements. In Photo 236 I have already stuck that piece and both reinforcements, underneath the “wings” and to the laterals of the body.

235. 236.

In Photo 237 I am sticking the piece that comprises the inferior part of the mudguard and in Photo 238 you can see already patch the small triangle that kills the edge of the mudguard, so that the passengers cannot hurt themselves.

237. 238.

Photos 239 and 240 show how I have stuck the round piece that reinforces the ground of the chassis in the central part.

239. 240.

And Photos 241 and 242 shows bottom and top, the vertical piece that separate the passengers from the engine already stuck in its place and on the ground the horizontal piece that covers the gear box and transmission. This piece cost horrors to me. As the instructions are in Pole, I guide myself at the order of my assembly, by the photographies of companions of other forums. And at them it seemed to me to see that first it was necessary to mount the part of the ground soon and the vertical piece after. Serious mistake. Once glued I had to cut it out and to fit as I could the vertical. I hope that it is not so evident. I mention it in case somebody wants to mount this model, so that it does not encounter in the same problems that I.

241. 242.

Well that is everything at the moment. The following thing will be to advance at the body. I believe that with those works, we will be able to have one better vision of the aspect of the model once finished.

Until the following post.

Greetings.

Hello once again,

Royaloakmin, thank you for your encouragement. It is something very helpful in a build.

Today I bring a new advance at the Willis Jeep. This time is the auto body. In Photo 243 they appear, before cutting them, the pieces that are going to be the sidewalls and the part where the hood of the Willys will be fixed. And in the Photo 244 all those pieces already cut and prepared for the assembly.

243. 244.

In Photos 245 and 246 they appear the pieces that cover the back shock absorbers in the Jeep, before their positioning and once stuck in its place.

245. 246.

Photo 247 shows the two sidewalls of the body, to which already I have given form.

247.

In Photo 248 I am sticking the left wall. As always, first I stick the back part of the piece before the ply and soon I came to stick the fore part. In Photo 249 both lateral pieces are beaten.

248. 249.

Photo 250 shows the pieces that compose the frontal part of the body where the hood is fixed to the body. In Photo 251 I am sticking them to each other. This piece turned out to be quite difficult to mount because the ends are doubled and it is necessary to do it with a lot of care. First it is necessary to double each piece of paper separately, and soon when uniting each one of the pieces, it is necessary to obtain that they stay doubled.

250. 251.

In Photo 252 I am sticking them to the body. And in Photo 253 you can see the finished body.

252. 253.

Good, in a little time I will be able to mount all the pieces that I have been accumulating of the Willys. I can assure to you that the aspect is impressive, although I reserve myself the presentation, because before I must make other many small tasks, like for example glueing the axes of the wheels to the chassis, sticking the wheels to the axes, place the motor and the radiator in its place, mount the arms of transmission of the motor to the boxes of transmission, etc. As you see I have veeeery much ahead work.

Up to soon, with more progresses.

Greetings to all.
