Got an IM from Tomick saying my Hummer Build Diary did indeed vanish into thin air. But all is not lost. In order to make it easier to add posts to the diary, I had saved everything in a Word Processor document. So I am going to attempt now to rebuild the diary using cut and paste.

Worked on the Hummer again today. First picture is the Pack 1 Stage 3 Parts. Second picture shows Stage 3 Complete. Tire mounted and glued on Wheel. Air Cleaner assembled. Servo Saver assembled.. quite a struggle squeezing the spring enough to get the nut on. (Tip:
Used a vise to squeeze the assembly and turned the nut with pliers. Scarred the nut a little with the pliers even with the nut wrapped with blue painters tape. Was able to smooth it again with a file and emery paper.)

Hummer Pack 2. First picture shows the parts included with Stages 6 - 10. Second Picture shows rear Bulkhead with upper and lower suspensions and shock stays installed. Also rear shock in plastic bag. Things went well til I destroyed one of the E rings that hold the shaft for the suspension in place. Fortunately I was able to purchase a supply of the same size E rings at my local hobby store. By the way… I forgot to mention in my first post how lucky I was to even receive the hummer Kit. All four large boxes containing the Hummer kit and the first month of my Fat Boy kit sat on my front porch all night without being stolen. Found them the next day when we came back from shopping.

How is your D51 build going... I've been looking at that as my next kit when I finish the Hummer. I am also building the Fat Boy but on a month to month deal so that will be a long ways off. I have the full kit for the Hummer.

Started on Pack 7. Assembled the right front hum and installed it to the front suspension. Looks like maybe the chassis is complete except for some steering linkage which must come farther on in the build. Stage 33 starts the body work. Maybe start on that tomorrow.[/size\

Hi Sid

Sorry for just getting back to you, I finished the D51 a while back now and here is a link to the finished model:-

http://forum.model-space...sts&t=15523&p=2

If you go to page 2 theres a picture of it in its case.

Right now im also building the C57 both models are great and also have there differences either would make a great build. The Fat Boy is a great build too and heavy when completed.

Regards

Andy

Always nice to see another Hummer, I really enjoyed this build. Looking forward to seeing how your water transfer camo turns out.

Gave up on the water transfer paint. I purchased the kit and when I got around to see what I could do with it, I found I did not have a container large enough to dip the frame in to apply the transfer. I thought my laundry tub would be large enough but turns out it is not. So I guess I am just going to paint it.

And of course now I have an unused desert storm came dip it kit for sale. Probably be hard to sell it but maybe Craigslist will work.
