Hummer H1
Revell-Monogram No. 85-1938
Model Type: Injection-molded styrene snap kit
Molded Colors: Orange, black, clear
Scale: 1/25
MSRP: $15.25
Pros: Beautiful wheels and tires; easy assembly
Cons: Sticker application difficult

This is a modified reissue of the Hummer H1 snap kit from a few years ago. The main difference is large chrome wheels/tires instead of off-road tires. As with the previous iteration, the kit comes with stickers instead of decals. Paint and glue aren't required, either.

The kit's body is molded in orange; other parts are molded in black. The beautiful wheels and disc brakes are chrome-plated, and there's a clear windshield piece, too.

Assembly is easy; all parts fit as they should. Builders will want to have, at a minimum, sandpaper to remove the attachment points from the parts. There's a fair amount of molded-in detail that could lend itself to further detailing.

The most difficult part of the model is the sticker application because you only get one chance (maybe two, if you're lucky) for correct placement. Stickers include emblems, trim, license plate, and a massive speaker box.

This is a great kit for kids, Hummer fans, or someone looking to do a custom project. I believe this is the only standard-scale Hummer kit. And those wheels and tires - they're gorgeous! Some people may want to buy the kit just for the rolling stock.
