Here is my M998 "Weapons Carrier" HMMWV.

It is based on the 21st Century Toys M998 "Hard Top" HMMWV.

Here is what it started off looking like:



I did the following modifications:

* Replaced the front snorkel with a short version from a M998.
* Added 'hillbilly' armor to the doors for added ballistic protection.
* Added Antenna mount * Wire Antenna + tie down.
* Added weapons crates + tie downs in back.
* Overall wash/drybrush for a dirtier look.


This is what I ended up with!



This one was a pretty simple mod job I did off a picture I saw online, nothing too fancy, but I thought it turned out alright. I figured my transport guys could use a little extra armor (This is theoretically existing in 2002, before the uparmor HMMWVs were in wide use).

Based on this:



More pictures below. Thanks for reading, comments + critiques welcomed.. it's how I get better!!

Thanks :) Yeah it was just a quick idea.. I actually used card backing from some BBI figure for the 'armor'. It seemed to be the right thickness and I didn't have any styrene or anything.

The picture ones looked a bit rough anyway so I figured being precise didn't matter as much.
