Default 1:5 scale NOAA Excursion truck

Well I was inspired again by the Discovery channel and I came up with my version of a NOAA excursion vehicle

This was created using my double dual lay summit ..

I will get better pics but here are some using my phone.










I'll post better pics in the morning In better places with my camera...

Great truck, looks the business!

Not sure it's getting recognition it deserves, as I think this is the "Willys Jeep" section lol

LoL...... well they both have similar grills.... Hopefully I'll get some love.....

Thanks, this truck has been a fun one for me.... It's just different enough to be unique... But still recognizable enough to look scale.... Either way, it runs great!

Great use of a 1/6 hummer. The NOAA theme is cool. I will always have a soft spot for an H1.

I think if you could get a set of summit wheels on this... It would look incredable.

It looks good with a singe wheel but I think the double duallies give it an edge in look but a huge performance upgrade since the double wheels help to give me lots of traction and " float-ability" in the swamps and lakes lands of Florida....
