Philippos Jeep Models

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

UPDATE: Philippos has created some newer jeep models, this time building it based on a pic of a Ford GP that was modified into a crane. However, instead of a Ford GP, he made it a Bantam BRC-40. Here’s the original pic:

He also just completed a DJ-3A Baggage Handler model. Except for some of the minor MB aspects (rims and grille), it’s really well done):

=======================

Originally Published May 25, 2019: 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.

    Those remind me of the Headquake RC videos on Youtube. There are several jeep vehicles and build videos, using mostly plastic I think.
