Built a snap-tite Hummer a long time ago (like back when I was in elementary school), and just left it in the red plastic it was molded in. This past week, I decided to rebuild it as a quick project, and I must say it's a complete transformation.

Funny how a little paint an detailing can wake a snapper kit right up!

Agreed. Plus with it being a snapper, I was finally able to finish a build in a reasonable time! :lol:

Great job. Revell did really decent work with all the lights and rivets on the body. Good detail work really brings it out!

Thanks guys. I'm still amazed how with just a little painting, a kit can go from a toy to something that looks real!
