Willys MB Jeep

Nothing really special about it. Pitch and Roll to steer and move around.
VTOL down to lower the windshield.

Short description
The Willys MB (commonly known as a Jeep or jeep, formally as the U.S. Army Truck, 1/4 ton, 4x4) and the Ford GPW are four-wheel drive utility vehicles that were manufactured during World War II. Produced from 1941 to 1945, it evolved post-war into the civilian Jeep CJ, and inspired both an entire category of recreational 4WDs and several generations of military light utility vehicles.

Some thoughts on it
Not that special of a build if you ask me. Quite fun to drive around in it, though. Has a very good suspension so don't hesitate to jump from unbelievably high places.
The interior lacks detailing but that's because I wanted to keep it relatively simple and, also, because I ran dry of patience. Stuff happens quite often, I'll have to excuse myself for that.

    @Wakescar Mine is made to be both simple and functional. I could've added a lot more detail to it but I would've surely ended up in a mental illnesses hospital xd
    Even so, yours looks good too! A few things here and there seem out of scale but it's okay ;)

    @TheLatentImage Glad you like it! Could've worked a bit more on it had I not run thin on motivation and patience.
    It was kinda painful to build it, gotta admit.

    @TheLatentImage I made a note to come looking for this when I saw the XCH-62 by @BogdanX . and there it was, in the form of a nifty notification!
    @PhantomBladeCorp Great build dude! I believe it has a more accurate overall scale than mine.

    This is nice work man, I quite enjoy this. @Wakescar made one of these as well, he also did a good job. You should check that one out too if you haven't already.

    I've seen many Willys here in my 2+ year span, but this is the best one yet.
