It was a long time since I decided that I wanted to build a Hummer. I had more or less clear that I would like to enjoy with the challenge of building the project with parts from here and there and not from a NIB. After weeks of waiting the opportunity I found a TA01 bargain, alltough that choice gave me some problems that you will see later on. Here the TA01 roller as I got it The roller was complete, extremely dirty but complete, so I could reuse many things and "enjoy" cleaning. Dissasembly started Damage evaluation: Front a rear differentials are in good status All plastic parts, including Shock towers, are in good status, allthough dirty Some bearings need to be replaced some screws and washers are rusty and need to be replaced Servo works fine Motor is useless Motor holder is broken . Assesment Bearings: I have in stock so I will replace all damaged bearings and plastic bushings with new sealed bearings. Needed to buy:1 Motor Parts B tree (includes Motor Holder and full gear box covers) Body and body accessories Parts D tree (basically for the mirrors and body holders). Normally it should require 2 sets, but I will get 1 and see if I can find other solution. Next chapter, cleaning
My brother and I used to fantasise about owning a Tamiya car when we were little, but the pocket money never stretched. This year I got a fantastic birthday present: a well looked after second hand Humvee; the model I had always wanted. At thirty one with an income and the internet to learn lots of new tricks and skills I have spent a lot of time (and money) making many modifications. I am extremely pleased with the result (see photos). Inspiration from Crispy and the Rocketman: http://www.crispyandtherocketman.com/id33.html and Dirt-540: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=123302&id=23103. Headlight rig from Tugay Alpat (www.rclight.8m.net). Will try to get some field and night pictures soon; she is built to be driven.
