Here is my completed Hummer.
I built it from the complete kit option rather than monthly which I felt was a good choice for me.
I found the instructions very clear but if you go this route it is maybe a good idea to look ahead and not be undoing something that you have already fixed half an hour ago.
I had no problems with the assembly as I had already read the forum and knew about the lumpy differential and how to fix it.
So here are some pictures. Your comments are welcome but be gentle with me, I'm an old man!

I forgot to say that the glow plug heater only arrived this morning and is on charge (10hrs) so I haven't started the engine yet. I have checked the remote control and the steering and throttle servos and all is well in that direction.
I will take the side windows out before I start running as has been recommended on this forum.

Looks great!

Adequate cooling is a must, and especially so with a new engine and use on a hot day.

Enjoy Cool
