You just have to love this mini Willys Jeep build! It is a 1/2 scale Bemak 1941 Willys MB Slat Grille body mounted on a 1980 John Deere 111 lawn tractor chassis and powerplant. It has an 11 hp Briggs and Stratton engine with 5 speed manual transmission. The 1.5 gallon jerry can on the rear is actually the fuel tank. Colin modified the tractor to run on 12volts so he could have working lights! I want to build one! I do not have kids, but that does not matter, right? Now, I wonder where to find a Bemak body.
I do not get onto the RC forums very often, but this build from Scale 4×4 RC caught my eye. Being that the 1969-72 Ford Bumpside F100 is one of my favourite truck body styles, I fell in love with this buildup! What a great job!
