"They got a jeep!" WIP

A jeep. Or in more simple terms, a small all terrain assault vehicle. It's been sitting around for a while (since march, in fact) and I'm wondering what approach should I take in order to finish it off. A couple more pics that I took:

Therefore, if any of you have any suggestions, I'm happy to take them into consideration.

This looks really cool. I've found that brackets are useful for forming the front end.

I'd personally add as little to it as possible, but in the form of brightly-colored slopey bits to round out the front end and keep the whole jeep as tight as possible. Use the coolest slopes you can find, in colors like sky blue, orange, yellow or red.

And of course, a machine gun mounted in the back. Bonus points if you can mount a gunner on it.

You bought a jeep.

More bonus points if the guy manning said machine gun has to hang on for dear life while firing it.

Awesome! But I do prefer the other windscreen and the black gate on the back.

I wonder if having minifigs hang off the side would work... especially if they'd have guns! :warhead:

The body looks good, just add a boxy bonnet and you'll be right. And all the gunners - the more the merrier.

I can do a boxy bonnet, sure; I was more wondering what to do with the front of the jeep. Anyway, I agree on the moar guns the mayhemier :warhead:
