The jump down the stairs in a jeep stunt AND THROUGH THE WINDOW, omg! lol!

Those jeeps are equipped for all kinds of punishing terrain, great stuff Dal and some fab looking wheels, lovely detail too!

I'm looking forward to seeing the jeeps get put through offroad tests out in your garden in the springtime, nice one! cheers cheers cheers

Nice jeeps, Dal!!!

Love the canvas tops and are the seats covered in canvas too?

Also prefer the tyres on these 21C jeeps. To me they look the most authentic of any of the jeeps out there, even the far more costly DML jeeps.

Thanks,
Brian

Hey bri, thanks! yes mate all the seats are canvas covered too. The tyres are very tough wearing and feel quite hard, so should get a fair bit of wear from them. I agree about the DML jeeps too, they are expensive

Thanks Dal!

It's the shape of those tyres. They look just like tires I remember seeing as a boy. Trucks and jeeps in those days had the rounded over tires, not the squared off edges like you see now. I think 21C were the only ones to get it right.

and the canvas covered seats are also something you don't see on any of the other jeeps.

A lot to like in those 21C jeeps!

I really like that you've used a comic strip to review and show off your two new Jeeps Dal, very well put together my friend.

Oh yes Dal , love the jeeps .

They really are well made and detailed, I've got a couple myself , one the same as you with the roof that comes up and canvas seats.
Can't remember the make of the others but very similar and working steering.
