5th try tonight I'm in awe the incredible details wow. that looks like quite the crew. If I had health n money I'd get y'all to do my 41 new Yorker. I'm gonna at least get it ratrodded b4 I pass I. Finished a lot of cars truck and such for others .never have managed to finish mines b4 someone had to have it worse I had to deploy so I sold. the last one to go last month was my 20yr project 72 charger. Traded body and parts for this 41 I have 2 engine and trannys and a 9And a quarter rear left. A new 380horse 318 and built 727 and an unbuilt 413wedge 3600miles. if I can't get this one done b4 this disease gets me I've had the pleasures of building models and other peeps dream rides and serving my country I'd say with my family I've had a full life. Never seen this level of detail in a model I'm ready for school now. And I'm a mechanic/mechanical engineer /soldier/auto painter/hobbiest . in awe happy modeling

Man I can not Thank Y'all both ( aliasT.W. & Moparlover64 ) enough for the great things that are said about the work that has and will continue to go into this build. Moparlover when I say this I speak for many others thank you for your service and OUR FREEDOM! Yes I myself have had projects like you come and go, which I regret letting go without a doubt... and thats including 1/25 scale builds! Im sure there are those out there asking when will this build be done? Well it never fails when I look the build over and look at 1:1 Hummer pics and see I left something out and challenge myself to scratch build. Im trying my hardest to close this up, and cant forget FAMILY LIFE that comes first above everything. Here are some more progress pics, I cut out the retractable outlet as you see in the first pic. Then out of very thin and mean very thin styrene made the strap along with the buckle. Also a close up pic of the seats inside the hummer, I gave the armrest depth by scrolling them out with an X-acto knife. Yes def alot of rough plastic but hey its a W.I.P,and will all come together in finally paint/assembly... Thanks again for checking GAME OVER out!

You are Sick ! !

 And thank goodness you are ! This is stone Cold Awesome ! Now I don't feel so bad about doing all those greeblies on my Boat builds . ( You know my primary modeling focus is Ships and Boats . Cars I do for the release from the ships . )

 I usually don't do the level you're into unless pushed . I haven't done this since 1978 when I did it on a Pontiac Trans-Am 455 H.O. - T - Top in brass and plastic , for a lawsuit . My lawyer client  won too !

 Boy , that was a nice paycheck ! This 1/8 scale beast had Glove leather seats , working brake - back-up lights and headlights and blinkers . The  Car was one of the tests I have faced over the years in large scale models .

    With you I can live vicariously again . Keep on keeping on ! !   O.C.G.

Well as you can see all my pics are NOT available on this build and past builds that I've had on ScaleAuto for years... All courtesy of PHOTOBUCKET who has recently gotten greedy and will not allow me to use their site/app. It will literally take $40 a month for them to allow me to post 3rd party pics on ScaleAuto... I'm sure I'm not alone cause I see other builds have the same message... so any suggestion?

Well, if you already have a yahoo account, you already have one terabyte of free image storage on Flickr; catch is, you'll need to get the BB code for an image (under "share") and strip the <img> URL to post that image here, unless there's an easier way to do it now?

It has been a very long time since I have posted any pics on SA, a lot has happened since then. With Hurricane Harvey that flooded our city and surrounding areas, with the magnitude of work required of me from my job & family responsibilities. I had a lot on my plate to recover from and building slowed down drastically, I have managed to come up with my new line of 1/24 scale plastic model wheels. And blessed to be working along with Raceline & US MAGS wheels with their designs, I have come up with replicas of their wheels. That all being said I managed  put many man hours into body work on the Hummer, along with that Ekstensive Metal Works has aired in November 2017 on cable Tv with a hit series “ Texas Metal “ on VELOCITY. And from what I hear thru social media a 2nd season has started filming with a cameo of this specific 2004 Hummer H2 I’m stoked to see the up coming season. Everyone knows building a plastic model is not easy when it comes to body work, if done wrong you can get highs & lows in the body and will show once painted. So it took a long time to get everything packed down, and capture all the details that the Ekstensive crew put into it. Here are some update pics you can also follow progress on my Instagram or my blog for more details. Like always thanks for checking it out and hope to hear from familiar names...

Glad to see you're back & cracking on with this amazing machine Tony ! I saw on another forum somewhere that you can now get tiny 1inch square screens with memory cards that are programmed with the videos of your choice ....( I guess someone brought up all the old Nokias Wink )  - That would look so freaking cool on this big ol' Hummer !!

I'm in the process of doing Cheech & Chongs White Chevy van with working hydros from an old AMT ??... kit ( with swingarms & motors) and I need to find tiny smoke machines .... or a foam one ...." Mischief Hey Maaaaaan That's Soap !" :-)

Spencer thank you for the kind words of inspiration, yes I’ve thought of a lot different methods to get real working Tv’s. But being that this specific Hummer is 1/25 scale its actually a smaller body, so three 1” Nokia screens would definitely be hard to cram in along with wiring. So I had to settle for still picture screens, not only that I don’t want to deal with handling it to much. Man hit me up with that build once you get it going, I’m definitely intriguied to see that Chevy van.

I am glad to see that this one didnt just die out. Outstanding work. Looking forward to seeing it finished. Also I am very interested in your wheels. I have looked all over for billet style wheels and have had no luck.

I can't leave anything stock!

Hey Notstock THANKS.... I will not let this one die out and you can see the other replicas following this build. I will start another thread for the 1970 Ford F100 very soon. Also I felt the same way about not finding quality Billet looking style wheels for 1/24- 1/25 scale models. So definitely look me up via Email anthonylopez78@yahoo.com and we will discuss everything there. Put in subject box your username from SA, look forward to hearing from.
