Jeep CJ-2A

This is my project to build a correct Jeep CJ-2A from the Hogan's Heroes Jeep kit from RCE/AMT

 

Jeep #4

Hood. The kit is designed with a very simple, fragile, and quite inaccurate hood hinge which intrudes into the cowling almost 1/8" (3" in 1/25 scale), while a real flat-hood Jeep's hood is piano hinged in the center, the hinge section being about 12" long, and pivoted right at the line between hood and cowl. See the next picture for the hinge, and a description of how it was done.
