Posted a couple pics of my latest build. Military Hum V in my album.
Hum V, huh? I always thought it was spelled HMMWV, but that's me. Nice work though.
but he could have said Military Hummer too
A Hummer HMMWV whatever
Yeah well I am from the age where we still used jeeps and PC's. The Hummer wasn't even a twinkle in anyone's eye yet.
Excuse my fubar.
At least it's not an H2, the off road vehicle that only off-roads when
yer wife drives over the landscaping.
H2...Ah, you mean the big box on the Suburban chassis :lol:
I have been tearing through boxes of old military papers and stuff of mine looking for a tasking I got when I was stationed in Honduras, but am unable to locate it, so I will rely on my memory, such as it is. The tasking called for myself and one other person from my squad to report for M2 refresher training. The letter went on to say following training we should expect to be detailed for armed convoy escort in M2 equipped "HUM-V vehicles." The HUM-V vehicle part is what I remembered from the tasking order. When I asked my boss (and Army major) about the spelling and joked about the redundency, he said there are many ways to refer to hummer and related one time when he saw it referred to as "the new jeep thing." But it is officially known as the HMMWV.
Sorry guys, thanks Ashrunner.
I was unaware of the technical name, I am just an old former Marine Corps grunt, and the Corps was poor. I honestly can't remember seeing a Hummer while I was in service, (got out in 81). We drove old junky jeeps and PCs,
or Dodge trucks, due to the government bailout of Chrysler in the 70's.
I just think these things are way cool, and would love to do some boonie bouncin' in one of them :lol:
Where did it come from
I like what I see from the picture but where did it come from? Is it a box kit or a self printed kit? Im not sure of all the Paprt model lingo I do all my models from print outs of my computer. But I would really like to get more information on this model.
I downloaded the model from a Dream.net site in japan,
unfortunately the site seems to be gone now.
Repeated attempts to get back to it have failed,
winding up in a 404 on Dream.net, hence
the lack of a link.
The link in the file is : http://www.auto.co.kr
(I am assuming Korean, but my far east
language skills are about zero to none.
Thank the web gods for translators ; ) )
But I find no sign of it there.
If you still have the files is there anyway I can get them from you? Im just beggin for another project to start
Separate names with a comma.
