Philippos Jeep Models

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

A French reader and modeler named Frederic turned me onto a Greek modeler named Philippos Ioannou who has created a number of beautiful jeep models based on historic photos (he builds non-jeep models, too). You can see many of his models on Facebook or on his blog.

Here are a few of his works.

    Very detailed works of art, yet no details of what material used to make the models, Metal, Plastic ? So much of this interesting story is missed in not stating background information.
    Back in the early 1960’s as a teen, my uncle Joe would bring me offset tin (Aluminium) lithograph printing plates, and I would cut and shape them into model cars and trucks. I still remember a Willys wagon I made, and my Uncle Joe showing it off at Sunday dinner to my Grand dad.
