« Part 67: Start The Hummer One and a Two Part 68 of Toy costruction series Part 69: Hummer Worked on the inside »

It’s starting to look like something but I don’t know what.

I really need to be making the seats and gauges but just have to do some body work to see what it’s going to look like.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll get back to the program, ya right!
Don’t look like much but played around with the angles for the sides.
I don’t know why they don’t just tell you their 15 degrees[I don’t know how to make that circle thingy that says degrees] for the windshield and 7 degrees for the sides.

Here’s the axles in place.


And you all know me by now got to put the wheels on and give it a look see.

This thing stands almost as tall as my Toyota Prerunner. LOL

Ok and for the last picture what do you all think about we make a pickup truck for a little change of pace?

... what do you all think about we make a pickup truck for a little change of pace?

Just what the missus needs for the daily shopping trip to the lolly shop (she’s a sweetie).


Hunter I m retired so put about 5 hours a day in…

I shouldn’t be apologising for you #4, but we (the royal we) need our nanny nap!


..I m retired so…

- htl


Had to read several times… No wonder you are good at making tyres… even though you can’t spell properly.

... in till it gets too hot in the shop…

- htl


You guys always complain about the weather. Come to Australian and all you have to worry about is whether you have a glass or not (the latter always a looser).


... on some chairs…

- GR8HUNTER


And beds?... designed for a nanny (nap?)... Don’t blame comfort for complacency.

I’m just about afraid to post, he can see through walls and find the smallest detail even if they are all wrong, but that’s ok cause we have to be good to poor Little Black Ducks that get locked up in vices for long periods of time.

Bruce I’ve lost count of which bruce is which all I know is I’m #4 but I have no idea how I’m going to cut the doors I probably won’t since I already glued them up but maybe tomorrow I’ll come up with something.
I hate cutting out doors infact I never have.
I never have had to before so in new territory here.

“we can have a challenge”
Bruce you can win I’m not very good under pressure I just like to build models for the fun of it.

If you have a great idea I sure could use one. LOL

I got to quit hanging around with Ducks I’m beginning to sound like one and that’s scary!!!

BB#? C’mon, there is no such thing as a duck in hibernation. I’m watching you… A Hummer with ”cut doors out” would be open to burglary and just be an oversized mini-moke. Keep the doors!
If you have to, paint it orange, name it ”General Lee” and let people climb in through the window. (Sorry for the swear word of “paint”.)

htl (AKA Luke), keep up the good work and don’t let a moronic tasty ”Aix galericulata” phase your progress.
