^^This was a project that I had planned for years but could never get a proper kit for. It's inspiration comes directly from a user most j00 d00ds will know as Plowking but many of us know as Eric. Plowking is without a doubt one of the most customized fan characters of all time, so much so, it may as well get an official figure.......... but until then, we'll just keep making customs. This one in particular is my own take on the fan character and utilizes an exact replica of Erics own personal Jeep he once owned right down to the square headlights. ^^Some might say, "Why bother re-shelling a Jeep onto a Jeep". Well, it's never been done and I thought reversing a figures transformation might be neato. Thus, yet another re-shell tutorial is born. Here's a step by step tutorial on how to re-shell a model kit over an identical body only reversed. ^^Like all re-shells, begin by stripping off all unnecessary parts. ^^Hollow out the floor of the model kit until it just fits over the chassis. (Try not to cut away too much.) ^^To sit level, the leg sections had to be stripped down lower than the screws. To keep the structures tight, I needed to glue the sections together and clamp them in place. ^^I also reinforced the joint with a styrene strip which also cleans up the mess. I've also sanded everything down so the chassis puts no pressure on the shell. (A loose fit) ^^At this point, I sprayed everything in a black primer and painted the chrome grille. I've also cut the fenders from the rest of the shell. ^^The radiator and headlights/turn signals are in place as it'll be too tight to fit them in later. I line up my two fender sections into perfect alignment and use the hood to tape them together. ^^Now we tape the rear section of the Jeep into place where it's sitting as level as possible. Basically, it's our reference point. ^^......and glue the fender sections into place at as many contact points as possible.
