Ok, so yesterday I set myself a challange, build 7942 the way it should have looked like. And this is what I came up with.
It's a modefied Humvee (Or supposed to be), Well... I'll let the pictures do the talking.
The Front, I like the winch, and the fact that there is no real roof. There would have been, but I only have 1 piece like the one used for the hood, so I went with this design. If I had made the hood simpler there would have been a roof, but I couldnt have because the hood hides something!
Ok, In this pic you can see there's some colour coordination lacking, that's because of a lack of parts, had I had that gray part in yellow I would have used it and I only have 2 doors in yellow. Also you see the hinge near the hood? That's there for a reason, no not a lack of parts. I'll get to that later.
Here we see the back, unloaded. Inside the crate are tools, there"s a foghorn and some compressed air tanks outside the crate. There's also a thingie that warns trafic about the viechle (The thing hanging out of the side)
Here I finally reveal why the inge was under the hood. The engine is held in there by gravity. Why? For easy removal of course!
Final Picture showing how the figs are seated inside.
I guess some may compare it as a "6 wide" version of my little jeep (now looted for yellow parts)
Please Comment. (Yes Luxor I know the bricks are dusty :-P )
