Italeri's Humvee kits
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, October 21, 2004 11:29 PM
I'm looking to build a diorama with a humvee in it. i don't want to use Tamiya's kit cuz it's just too expensive. so i'm considerng the Italeri Hummer Avenger kit, the one with the two Quad Stinger missile launchers. has anyone here built it? how is the quality?

thanks!!!Approve [^]

I did an article about the Italeri HMMWVs, the Avenger included. There is also a part 2 to the article describing the aftermarket items for the kits.

I liked my Italeri Avenger. Considering that at the time there wasn't a lot of choices. Yeah i'm king of cheap builds. Rob's got the low down on all these kits that's where I learned everything I know. main problem with both the Academy and the Italeri, with out being too nitpicky, is the wheels/hubs. They all suck. I haven't built the new Tamiya yet. i'm just waiting on Hobby lobby's next 50% off sale on models. They either have a sale or offer an internet coupon once a month.Shy [8)]

If you read Rob's review on the Humvee by Italeri you're probably not going to get much better scoop then his writeup. I've built both the Tamyia and the Italeri and enjoyed both builds. It goes back to that old saying , ya gets what ya pays for. Semper fi, mike
