In the MV world, the "Holy Grail" is probably to find an original Jeep in its shipping crate. Of course, other than those at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the holds of sunken ships, it's very unlikely anyone will ever find one. The whole "Jeep in a crate for $50" idea came from a post war scam, trying to con people out of their money. However, there are a number of photos around the net showing Jeeps in crates, although how they were packed and how disassembled they were seems to vary from picture to picture. This model was built for a friend, with the hood number matching his Jeep. The Jeep is from the 1/35 scale Italeri kit with a scratch built crate from ramin strip wood and 1/32 birch plywood. The metal tie down straps are black painted paper, with painted wire over paper holding the wheels into the tub. It is presented in an A4 box frame.
Hi all i`ve just discovered this site so this is my first time posting many years ago i bought a willys MB, its a project that someone started then lost interest. In the mean time i`ve been helping my dad restoring his sentinel steam wagon amongst other things and life getting in the way so its been stashed in his shed for years. However the wagon is nearly finish and the jeeps turn is approaching. So now ive started looking for the parts to finish my MB, ive been searching on line but can only seem to find people listing repro stuff and the odd NOS parts. what ive got is mostly original so id like to try finish it that way, im not looking for bargain parts to try turn a quick quid im just looking for parts to finish my jeep. So my questions are does anyone one know of any dealers dealing in original used parts also are there any shows or meets that have a more jeep part dealers than others ? any help would be most appreciated many thanks chris
Hi, I am joining this forum as I am about to finalize a full rebuild of a Willys MB '42, frame tag 152970, DoD 22.6.1942. As this was delivered under a BRT contract (as stamped on data plate), I am planning to have it made up in British markings. Cheers, Steinar
