Willys MB "Jeep"
A WWII car that I built with exposed studs. This is a contest entry.
About this creation
First, I must say that this obviously isn't my secret project that I've been working on either. My secret project is currently on hold, and will be on hold for at least a month.

Since I haven't seen many of these on MOCpages, I decided to build a 70 year old car. It was actually easier than I expected, and it only took about a week to finish. This is my first large scale car that's not some kind of super exotic that boasts a 200+ MPH speedo, 450+ HP, and a mind blowing price tag. Well, actually, I can't really say this is a cheap car, but it's the cheapest car that I've ever built. The most expensive car that I've built is probably the Ferrari F310B. Enough of that. So lets take a look at the car:


The front of this rugged automobile.








The side.








The back.








Opening Parts


The tailgate is can open. I didn't make the doors open because...um...well, there aren't any.







The hood is open.








Everything open.






The engine. I couldn't find a decent picture of the real car's engine (no thanks to Google) that didn't have lots of rust, leaves, or other weird stuff in it. So I did the best I could, but I must admit that it's one of the least impressive engines that I've built.






The bird's eye view.




The way I built the car's chassis is different form the way I built my other ones.




The size comparisons.






If you take better pictures, you'll get more attention. Here's what I mean: Who wants to look at an MOC that has tons of blurry pictures? Here are a couple ways to take better pictures: make sure the pictures that you take are focused and use a background (you can use boards and then put a glass on top so it has reflection - the thicker the glass, the better).

Ok! I already had the paper at home so I did the white walls. The only problem was the glass, so I didn't used glass or plexiglass. I think it still looks good with only paper. I'm only struggling with the shadows, but I am trying to get them away. :-)

Honestly, I don't really know where you can get glass for cheap. The glass I use is just something we got (I don't remember if it was for free at the side of the road, or at a yard sale or something similar). I've also heard that you could use something similar to glass - plexiglass or something like that; you could Google it. If you have a black table that reflects (like a mirror or glass), that would work well too. DeTomaso Pantera uses a black table. Remember to keep in mind that glass backgrounds are very hard to work with if you use lamps or artificial light. Using artificial light(s) would make it look yellowish. I would suggest setting your background up near a window that gets a lot of sunshine. Bird's eye shots are particularly difficult to capture a good shot because if you use a lamp, the glass will reflect the lamp so you can actually see the light source. For bird's eye views, taking the pictures without a lamp (only natural light) would work best. I hope this helps you take better pictures. ~Lego Builder Jr.

Sorry for commenting again, but suddenly the question came to me: how do I do the lights? Is it the best to just do it with only the lights on the ceiling or do I need some more and brighter lights? :-)

Okay. I think I get the idea of how to make some good photos. Thanks for the advice! I think i might know a place where I can get the papers, but where can I buy a glas plate (without spending a lot of money) do you think? Your car looks great by the way! And I like the studded look! :-)

good, the windshield may be too sloped, and the whole thing in general looks a brick or two too low, but overall, ITS GREAT! 6/5! check out my jeep on my page, its in my LDD file. :D

Great looking jeep Mr Builder. I might try my hand at something like this. Don't worry i'm not offended by your comments, i just noticed that they tend to be negative, i think it is more constuctive to give truthful positive feedback rather than be negative, this is all just for fun afterall. Happy Building :)

It could be more color coordinated, but your presentation and functions are nice.

Excellent jeep. The studs showing is perfect for this moc. I really like the tailgate and chains. Good luck :).

Cool Jeep, with the right details and good opening features. Unfortunately I disagree with Nick (below) - sorry Nick! - as to me it looks much too wide. The original Willys Jeeps from WW2 were *really* narrow. Other than that though, very good build, 4/5 : )

I like this. The proportions are right and the camouflage paint is nicely done - good luck in the contest.
