Looks cool! Maybe a bit too clean for my taste..

How do you mean "Franklin"?

That must have been a lot of work, if it's scratchbuilt.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Yeah, maybe a little clean but that's some nice work!

Interesting that she's in a 'car' scale.

The Franklin Mint does a series of diecast metal pre-built display models, including a HMMWV. He's taken one of them and converted it into the model you see above.

His kit maintains some of the hardtop M1025 HMMWV features (armored doors, rear bumper, straps on tailgate, roof) yet tries to be a soft top variant M998 cargo carrier.

Thanks for the info, Rob - in that case it was not that much scratchbuilding, after all...
