Good to see another Hummer build or two. You look like your busy, will be following with interest

Received my second delivery of parts for my Hummer and the first for my step son's, so i was hoping to post post pictures of both. however pack one looked like someone or something had stomped on it. So phoned CS and they have sent a replacement out. Here's our progress for delivery two.

Hi all, just got back from a weekend with the in-laws and when i arrive home there'a a package behind the tree. So we can finally upload the pictures for delivery 1. YAY Here we go.








Here I have got a question the air filter and the little bit of trim that is placed in this step. Is it glued in place now or later on it does not say? anyone got any ideas?

If you are intending to paint the body, then do not glue the airfilter, its trim, the bonnet radiator cover or the front radiator.

I was able to see this kit at the iHobby show, and it looks like a LOT of fun, both to build, and to "drive."

I got to play with the real thing when I was in the Army. Fun to take off road, and they will climb a brick wall, but they are very very weird to stop. The brakes are not on the wheels, but rather on the drive-lines. When you are at a complete stop, the vehicle would rock to and fro, which was unnerving. I don't recall how well they stopped. They are also incredibly noisy!
