Humvee WIP

Post by Bizzle on Sun Jan 03, 2010 4:27 am

Well I am making a humvee while I wait for the funds to buy the base plates for my Major WIP. This is what I have so far:


This is a rough version of what the body of the Humvee will look like. When it is finished it will be all tan with US Rangers in it. But at the moment I am in need of major help lengthwise. My dad who was a marine and drove these around says the length is ok, but I want more opinions. Any thoughts are welcome. The back will stay as it is as that is the only part I am satisfied with right now. The wheels will most likely be the wheels I used on my Warthog. Pictures:

Good idea, but I don't remember seeing a dark bluish gray Humvee in Black Hawk Down... JK

Pizza- I am going to buy all the tab pieces after I make this using multiple colors so I know exactly how many of each piece to but. Any tips on the Humvee?



CC- Thanks.


I've already changed it up since I was able to move a laptop into my room. Its amazing how much easier it is to make a MOC of a real thing when you are able to see a picture of that thing.

I don't remember a place like this in the movie, so where is it? Please remind me, but the idea of a black hawk down MOC is great!

Its not a scene from the movie. If you have read the book/other resources there is a part where a Humvee is trying to get back to base takes a wrong turn and gets ambushed.

Revo-Nope no snot camo. It's going to end up being all tan like the ones used in Iraq and in the Black Hawk down movie. Thanks for the suggestion but I'm not really sure how I would even do the camo.

I think great idea to consider is making it have a movable suspension like done here.

Cool, I still think there should be a machinegun on top. Some hidden weapons in side would be cool to. Wink
