This intricately designed 3D model of a military Humvee comes ready to assemble. Simply snap out the pieces from the square laser-cut thin steel sheets, and bend the tabs to attach them together.
The model requires patience and attention to detail, but is a fun project for anyone that loves automotive and military history.
The technical name for this four-wheel drive military vehicle is the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). It was designed primarily for personnel and light cargo transport behind front lines and not as a front-line fighting vehicle. The Humvee has become the vehicular backbone of U.S. forces around the world, and its widespread use in the Persian Gulf War helped inspire the Hummer line of civilian automobiles.
