Tamiya Mini

Mini RC Hummer

I wanted to give my Tamiya M05 a different look and decided on a Hummer body. Unfortunately I could not find any in my local hobby shops. Fortunately while I was browsing in a local supermarket, I chanced upon a toy Hummer. The body looked like a perfect fit for the Tamiya M05 M-chassis with a 225mm wheelbase.

Until my next project! Have fun.
