M1114 HMMWV

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

This build has been going for maybe 6-7 years now. On and off, home and abroad.

I started with the basic Tamiya M1026 HMMWV to convert to an M1114. When i started this build, there were next to no conversion or upgrade kits out there, so I scratchbuilt most of it. Last year, I went ahead and picked up just a few upgrade kits to make my life easier and someday get this done....

When first started I didn't have a direction for it, then I ended up using one in real life, so I decided to replicate it. That's me-

The scratchbuilt doors I later replaced with aftermarket-

Hmmm

I guess I can only add so many pics per post, so here are the rest-

More kitbashing and scratching-

I scratched this tire rack, but took it off after I changed the build direction-

Radio mount-

Old turret. I ended up building a brass one, but I don't have any pics of it-

That's all for now. I need to get some paint on it, but I don't have an airbrush where I am, and probably won't until maybe the end of the year. I've waited this long, what's a few more months? :D

It's nice to have your real 1:1 to model after. I used my Army ride to model too .. ;)

This looks really good. Very nice modifications to make it "yours". :)
