I bought 3. It's funny how 4 years ago I was clamoring for true 1:18 scale. I think we lost that war. Now something as cool as these can't be enjoyed because they're too damn small. I don't think they're actually even 1:18th.


Looking for some tips in modifying them for photography. I already used liquid chrome for the mirrors. I think the one distraction is how the interior is lit under normal lighting. The plastic on the trunk is thin and projects some unnatural looking backlight while seated figures can't be seen well. There's a lot of missing natural reflected light that's being absorbed by the plastic color of that interior.

Are they bigger or smaller than the 21st Century Toys ones?

The BBi one is slightly bigger. I tried to align the front edge of the hoods.

Sorry for the dust...

I'd be curious as to the size of the real world counterparts.. I have to assume an uparmored HMMWV is bigger than an unarmored Gulf War HMMWV, right?

I think my issue is with the small wheels. I can change them out when I find a better option.
