Thanks Jato!
I think it was $360 plus shipping..

I've decided not to remember any prizes from now on..
If I cant remember I cant be held accountable, can I..?

I'm not a huge fan of Humvees but that is very cool. Nice work.

So I got some input on a british site on facebook, a tip on the original rims from the tactical unit..
So I ordered a set of those, and guess what..? They dont look that bad actually..

BTW, I sold and shipped the HiLux-body today, so you wont see that one again I guess..

Yepp, and it's done by purpose.
I like to shoot pictures with a shallow depth of field, and those kind of pictures is what makes the miniature-look.

So I got to take some pictures today..
Keep in mind that the tires wasn't glued to the rims since I got new beadlocks on the way that I hope will fit with this body..
I know they wont look as good as these ones(quite honestly I really love the look of the tactical rims with this body), but I think I'll hold back on buying even more beadlocks the coming weeks..
Ehm, I can't promise that last note will hold for long, but I'll at least give it a try..
Yeah, I mentioned pictures.. Here goes!!

Yeah, I have to address a couple points I've had thrown at me posting these pictures on different forms today..

1 - Yeah, I know it ain't scale right enough for puritans.. I know a real H1 has independent suspension.. But bare in mind, I'm newb to this hobby and to me this boddy UP's the ante quite a few steps from the lexan-wobblyness I've been dealing with this far..
2 - Yeah, I know it's bought and not built.. If that bothers you it's you that have a problem.. I work somewhere between 50 and 60 hrs every week and do not have the time or guts to build this one myself.. I allready got one hardbody lying in a corner LOL'ing at me for not spending time with it.. So thats why I went the easy way on this one.
3 - Yeah, I know the rc4wd wheels is a perfect fit. And eventually I think I'll go for them. But I want to explore other wheels also, I've seen lots of photos of H1's on other wheels than those steel-wheels. So for the look I got those Tactical plastic-wheels just to get the photos. Those wheels are too light and will not be the ones I use regularly, but for the looks I think they worked out great..!
4 - Hell yeah! I forgot the last point.. But I know there was a fourth one, I will return when I remember what it was..

Since last time I've finally fixed the body mounting(I hope), at least so that the body will stay in one place as long as I dont roll a lot..
I also got the CNC-guys at work to machine some new rings for my rims, so now they're aluminium colored as they should be..
And at last but not least, I got stickers.. Stickers baby..!!!
So here you got one picture to see the wheels and stickers.. What do you think?

I think it looks really good. But like you said it's not to scale.doesny matter as long as you have fun with it.

I like the black wheels better than the alum because they act as an optical illusion, allowing the rig to look a bit more scale. The black also goes better alongside the other black accents... hinges, hood vent, lettering, etc... imho. That being said, I'm always a sucker for putting new wheels/ tires on my vehicles so I understand the enjoyment of changing things up... especially on a fresh rig. All in all I think it's a great-looking H1... definitely unique and I dig the sense of humor as a finishing touch. If I ever find myself crossing a street in Norway, I'll be sure to look both ways.

I think the black rims fit better with the military feel of that H1 body. However I really like that style of Aluminum wheel so it would be a tough call for me to decide which to go with.

Yeah, I like the way it looks also. I'm still in search for the perfect wheels tho', but yeah I'm having a good time and loving the TRX-4 in every way!

Hahaha, love the feedback, and I couldn't agree more.
The black wheels looks pretty good I think, I may buy another set of those to try and paint them in the same color as the body.. What other than money do I have to loose?

Glad you got the humor on the stickers, I'm planning on how to get to mark off some victims on there..

I totally agree about the wheels.. The only thin I dont love about them is that they are made of plastic.. I might have to buy the expensive RC4WD-wheels in the future.. It would've been cheaper to buy them at the beginning instead of trying out all these other wheels.. But again, the trying and failing is fun

I'll check out your youtube-channel
