Hummer H3 on 9398

13 posts in this topic

A fully functional 4WD has been on my list for a while. After I had build the 9398 Technic set that I got as a gift a while ago I decided to use it as a base for the new Hummer I had planned for. I took the whole thing apart and rebuilded the chassis lowering it a bit and replacing the battery box. Also the fixture points for the suspension was changed. With the chassis modded for suitability and color trimmed, a completely new body was installed. The car is slightly less detailled compared to what I would do normally to save some weight, but still on a fair level.

The car is fully functional and still has very good terrain capabilities. The point of gravity is a bit higher so it rolls a bit quicker then the original thing. Being a bit heavier, it still does perform very well.

I heard about the Technic contest from efferman, but too late,... i modded the chassis already, and it is now not legal :-)

Thnx all!

Indeed, the body is not as tough as the Technic variant obviously... although it is not that weak either. You can do some good terrain work with it, but it rolls quicker then the 9398, and you want to avoid that :-)

@Victor: The scale is spot on.
