    Ilove your build. Similar to your explanation, my joking about the mahindra was that with a slight difference the look is actually different, as you showed. Not saying there was a problem, just joking to avoid one if it can be avoided. I'm no expert on the willy's jeeps like many here who are, so hopefull you find the specs for the grill. I've been checking out the printing world - people doing whole towns, microscopy, pretty much up to the imagination. Glad you picked a jeep!

    Thanks Az, I just wanted to make sure I did not inadvertently made an error I didn't catch. I'm no Willys specialist either. I'm glad I picked a jeep as well, it's a great project and it got me to meet you all here.

    I've reached out to the Quebec Willys owner group and to the Canadian Armed Forces to check if there was a MB within a couple of hours of my town. If so, I'll ask the authorization to take pictures and measurements.

    In the meantime, I will insert more pictures inside my software so I have a better overall accuracy.

    Someone from the Quebec Willys owner's club has an MB grill and he took some measurement for me and provided pictures.

    I'm quite lucky to get these exact measurement.

    I'll be good to go with these:

    Meet the new front grill with the added details such as the small recess at the center top and the small beer belly at the bottom, oval headlight hole and filets on sharp corners.

    Here's the original picture of the belly

    Here's the old grill

    And now the new one.

    Tomorrow I'll go from here and modify the fenders accordingly.

    Perfect! The grill is the signature piece.

    Thanks you Guys!

    After remodeling the grill, I did the fenders, firewall portion of the tub and began the hood. Here is where I stand right now.

    While posting this update, I realized I forgot the foot rest on the side of the tub, the shovel holder and recess on the side and noticed the hole for the windshield bracket is too low.

    Making slow progress, but making progress.

    Just got the first print test of half the portion of the front tub, some details are great but the printing limitations on the top is nagging me.

    But these are due to the printing process itself. Not much I can do to solve this other than sand and paint which is something I wish not to do.

    The other option is to make the top of the tub flat. The problem is because it is curved.

    This is like watching a Jeep grow from a seed!

    bb that gear shift might be a little on the large side.
