I think I should probably rename this thread or start a new one as I seem to have moved on from the jeep... but I thought I’d just update progress on the surrendering young man!
Not much more to do on this figure although I did knock him over and he fell into my paint pallet (pringles lid!) and there’s a bit of a clean up going on as a result:..you can see the splodge of white on his shoulder...these things are sent to try us!,.
Sorry I’ve not had the chance to update on this but been mad busy!..Admittedly this isn’t strictly a modelling update but I felt it was worth posting anyway...
My wife is a massive Elvis fan and is approaching a “landmark” birthday ( I couldn’t possibly say which!) and so as a birthday treat I have taken her to Memphis and Graceland in particular...even as someone who isn’t a massive fan I have to say that I was delighted to discover Elvis’ Wiilys Jeep in his car collection...I may have to have a crack at doing a version of this once I get home!!!!
They were very popular in Hawaii in the late 50's, early 60's. If memory serves, also available in a bright turquoise and a real laser beam of a yellow.
