« Part 1: The Chassis Part 2 of Model Build #2 : The Hummer series Part 3: The Seats »

Well gents, here is my progress so far. The fenders were not to bad to make. getting the grooves cut out for the headlights was a pain in the butt considering I suck at using a chisel. I used my disc sander to make everything straight and flush before I made the rounded curve on the top of the fender. Now off to the next part.

The secret to cutting end grain with a chisel is to have an extremely sharp chisel and only take of a small amount each time. It is all looking good

Hey J, it’s easier to start with the hole and fill in the rest!

Coming along nicely… appreciate your concerns!

I just built the Gatto Plans Mack Dump Truck, this looks just as complicated, keep up the good work.
