U.S. M1114 HMMWV "Humvee" (1/72)

May 11, 2023 · in Armor · · 4 · 0.7K

A quite nice kit from .
Good molded parts with nice and sharp details.
This kit is able to be expanded with other enhancement sets from the same manufacturer.
(Mod. US Upgrade Kit, Mod. U.S. M153 CROWS II System)

The structure is made up of several elements (quite a lot of elements) which complicates the construction a bit.
However, if you work in a concentrated and precise manner, it is not too difficult, as the accuracy of fit of the individual parts is quite good.

A few minor mistakes happened to me during construction, fortunately they don't catch the eye.
The biggest problem for me was the tires, because there was a big gap after finishing the assembly.
As a replacement I wanted to use replacements from OKB Grigorov, but these were not available and the second planned replacement of Model Miniature (MM-R034) was too small and of too poor quality.
Therefore, I repaired the original tires and used them.

So this kit is completely built out of box.

The standing soldier comes from a set () and the one in the vehicle from Modelcollect (actually a Russian one;), but it fit perfectly into the gap).

A bit of junk, from different sources on the back to add a little more color.

    That is some exceptional work in the Braile Scales series of vehicles and figures. Great display that really captures your attention.

  4. Another excellent build, Simon @s-nagorsnik
    Beautiful weathering and detailing.
