Default Face lift for the modified Hummer

Ok, so I've had this body sitting around for a while, and wanted to use it on something. I had planned to build up a truck using TLT axles and use it on that, but wasn't too enthusiastic about a solid-axled Hummer...

So, I decided to give the Tamiya Hummer a face lift. Some of you probably remember it, but I've included a picture of it with the Tamiya body for those that dont.

This new body is a bit wider, and looks awesome with the deep CAC wheels and larger tires, I think it's a keeper!

The only downside is that now I need new tires and wheels for the Landrover!

I thought you where knocking up a chassis for it? This has got me scratching my head a little

I've got something else in the works for that other chassis. I told you I'd probably change my mind before it's over...

This body is a Nikko, said something about "Lobo Hummer" on the stickers. Other than that I don't know what it is...
