Hummer H-1 toter for the Glaxie 38ft trailer

24 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Revell Snap-Tite H-1 curbside , pretty far along on the 5th wheel area, just need to box the rear in where the cab stops. Gonna try Testors Sublime green and Dupli-color dark Royal blue 2 tone and shoot the trailer the same way. Did you ever notice the simple builds take the longest ,,LOL...

Possibly a small rail along the sides of the bed?

That is a cool build. I agree a rail down each side will be nice. Color choices will be cool to see when done.

Got some color on this last night , wait on the Sublime green to fully cure then extend the Royal blue onto the body

This was the original idea for this build

Hey Ken that turned out great. I can't wait to see it and the trailer together. That green will really turn heads.

That looks really fine, Ken! The body conversion is super and the Sublime looks awesome....My favorite color, actually.

After building 2 of that kit I didn't think there was much you could do with that kit, but you (and Matt Trotta) have changed my opinion, I do believe.

Came back off the road today and did a little work finish the H-1 interior, I found the color of Kens Kustom Fuzzi-Fur I needed in Oklahoma ,maybe I can get some seat belts done this weekend also , no completed builds in 3 months , I have a few I'm anxious to start on.

I love that green flocking! I bet if you ground it up some you could make it look like astroturf :?:

This ones almost done , just need to clear coat , add all the detail painting and some PE parts , make a rear bumper [maybe a pipe type].Had to mock up the trailer to get the right ride height . Been a productive weekend so far , good ole Tamiya tape comes thru again .

Longest quick build snap kit I ever did , hardest thing to polish also , to many hard edges . Added PE wipers and all detail paint , just need to find mirrors, been cracking into kits all morning nothing looks right , might have to snatch 'em out of the H2 kit..

Looking good Ken!!

What kind of mirrors do you need? The Revell 70s Custom van from 2000 has the best "California Mirriors" I've found so far. I don't have any to spare I've already built both my copys with them on there but it may be a place to look!

I never paid much attention to that kit, but yours looks pretty cool Ken! 8)

That trailer is also a neat touch............I just wish I had the display space to show something like that. I guess it's off to Wally World and see about some new shelves! :D

Thats pretty cool , I like the look and colors are smooth, mine started out kind of on those lines with a tilt bed top , spinners and such but other demon ideas hit me....
