As the body will be complete in with the next delivery of parts I will keep this short and take some decent photos with of the finished model.

I have also painted the light buckets / lenses and added these to the body. There are also side lights and small lights to add to the front and back of the vehicle that are painted but have not yet been added.

Pegs are useful for holding the part in place whilst the plastic cement sets.

I decided to paint the Hummer the classic yellow they are often seen in.
