    I finally got a GPW!!!

    Expanding the collection. I now have a WW2 Jeep, well almost. I got this from my brother for Christmas. Remote control Willys/ gpw. It has a real 2 speed tranny. Leaf springs. actual foam and cloth seats. and pretty much all the details to make it a real jeep. The steering wheel even turns with the tires! It is 1/12 scale about 11 inches long, and 100% true detailed to the max. Now i have to make the dicision. Do i drive the real cj5 or the small one? the rc drives smoother lol.

    But best of all... I finally have a jeep with floors and seat covers!!

    Well, you can drive the small one in the house....

    That's a really neat model!

    They definitely did their research right!

    "Well, you can drive the small one in the house...."

    And whenever I stop for a break on the real trail I can pull it out and do some wheeling around camp. While the big jeeps cools down.

    That's pretty sharp. I really like the detail with the drive line.

    The thing that gets me is they even recreated the off-set rear differential. Such a fine detail that could be overlooked easily.

    My entire lineup. I'm by no means a professional photographer, but i think the pics are believable. It's all about the angle, now I can prove I own 2 jeeps lol!

    I really like the fact that that is a functional driveline complete with actual u-joints! Wow the detail on that thing.
