Support
If you would like to support future free releases, please feel free to leave a tip (especially if you sell prints of my designs). I really want to keep on giving these things away for free.

Making use of the affiliate links that I provide to purchase parts is also a way of supporting me that doesn't cost you anything. I don't recommend anything that I haven't personally used.

Failing all of that, I heartily appreciate a credit or link back to my facebook page when you post your prints on social media.

Introduction
This is an accurately scaled 1:10 MB jeep which makes use of affordable drivetrain parts off of a 1:18 scale Kulak crawler.

The tyres are quite obviously not to scale. I think these would be perfect, but they are too pricey for me.
