I have always liked the look and design of the Hummer HX Concept since I first saw it in a magazine. I also have enjoyed viewing the few builds on various scaler sites online. Well I finally decided I would take the time to build my own vision of what I thought the HX should be.

One of the first things that grabbed me when I started looking for the body was the wheelbase, 10.5. I had to go look at the wheel base of the 1:1 version, 103. That puts it in the Jeep category as far as size.

I am wanting to build it as a 1.9er with a full interior, interior cage work with sliders, fender protection, front and rear bumper protection, and fun. I also will be including leds in the front , the rear and the top.

So I started to layout the plan for making my build come to life. I have started placing orders and locating used parts I would like to use in the build. Here are the parts that I have for the build so far:

Maisto Hummer HX Concept body
Axial SCX-10 chassis
Proline Powerstroke 90mm coilover shocks (already had in parts box)
1.9 CAC ONE9 6 Spoke wheels (already had in parts box)
1.9 RC4WD Rok Lox tires (already had in parts box)
Airtronics 3 channel receiver (already had in parts box)
Airtronics 94358 servo (already had in parts box)

Here are some pics of where I was after my first shipment arrived.

Here the body is with the doors cut and the rear hatch removed. I will be installing tube doors.

My wraith interior showed up so I trimmed it a bit to fit it in the body. Here are some pics of the mock install. Of course the interior is still clear and may be hard to see and visualize.

Here are some pictures of how the Rogue Elements Wraith Interior Kit will look installed. I have not decided yet on what color my interior will be.

Nice! I do like those concept trucks ... I was always just concerned about the wheelbase. How long is the WB on there?

Those figures .... would it be too much trouble to ask for a picture of them standing next to a tape measure?

The wheelbase on the body is 10.5". The 1:1's wheelbase is 103".

Here is a pic of one of the figures next to a measuring tape.

I originally thought about having someone do the tubework for me since I didn't have the proper tools. Well now I do. Not pictured is my torch. I will be using solid 3/16th steel rod.

I figured the cost of paying someone to do the tubework would have paid for the tools. So I got the chop saw for $70 at Norther Tools and the clamp on vise from Harbor Freight for $20. That clamp table is actually my kitchen counter. I had been quoted prices of $450 and $500 for the tubework. So I am already ahead cost wise. :-)

Well I can maybe help you out. This build feel by the way side and most of it's parts have been used on another build I had. If you would like this body let me know.

I appreciate that, but I think that I would probably go a different direction with my build then what you were doing. Plus I have just about hit my Scaler limit; main reason I have not bought one of those already is trying to decided if it's one I would want to live with for a while or something I would find amusing, but then lose interest in quickly.

I really want anything I do now to go to the next level, I am going to slow down and take my time and work on the details a bit more. I have a CC-01 chassis that I have slowly been building with all aftermarket bits and although I had a body picked out for it, I thought the Hummer Concept might make a good alternative.
