Default Tamiya Hummer rebuild

Hello everyone,

as I haven't seen a Hummer in a long time, I thougt I could show you mine.

I started to customize it about 9 years ago. Than it was sitting on my shelf or (seldomly) running in the wild.


Starting point:


Final version for about 8 years:



Then I decided to change the body. I wanted it to look more civilian, so I decided to build a Station Wagon with a widebody-kit (since the TA-01 chassis is weirdly wide...).

I also had to change the front suspension since under load the wheel moved too far back. So I glued a brass tube into the lower wishbone joint and now the wheel goes straight up. It sill allows for a great axle-movement.









Hope you like it so far!
