« Part 3: The Seats Part 4 of Model Build #2 : The Hummer series Part 5: The Tires »

Here’s another update for you guys. I used a 1/16” straight router bit for the kerfs and I made a template for making the kerfs for the doors and windows. I am going to put the gas cap in a different location. I want my model to have different features than T&J’s.

Looking good and love the wheels! =-)
And now your all set to be building three four at a time, with those patterns.

Very nice job with the kerfs Jason. I’m like you I have to put temporary wheels on models to see what they look like.

K J’, Tell us your secret (hell, you’ve come up with a few gems that have me, at least, rolling in my sleeping bag). I have done “similar” (deliberately quoted as I use a laser to cut the following template)... Some pretty scrolling per chance????

PS. You starting up a anti-CNC lobby?

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Ducky, I’m not starting up a anti-CNC lobby, thats funny though. Those machines are just so damn expensive. Maybe in the distant future I’ll have one. And my “secret” I just look at the plans and think of how I can make that with the tools I have. I don’t have any fancy equipment like a CNC so I just think outside the box.

That’s half the fun thinking up ways to get er done, and always love to see how others solved a problem, and thrilled when I get that O! that how it can be done moments.
Great work and thanks for sharing.
And that’s going to be one Humdinger of a model.
