Instructions

CADA has given us 2 instructions for the 1386 components. The entire structure is divided into 5 construction phases. There is no consecutive numbering of the construction steps. They are subdivided from A to D and always start at 1. If you add these up, you get 216 construction steps.

Construction

The Humvee starts with the front axle and the steering system. From here we advance towards the middle. The rear is already prepared for the motorization. This can be done at any time without any modification work. People really thought about it here. The tires are large and made of flexible rubber. After all parts have been connected, the chassis still sags a little and has yet to be fixed.

Now we have a stable chassis that can be used as the basis for all further construction. In the following steps, we keep building add-on parts and attaching them to the body. The 4 seats can be folded and the neck support is also adjustable. The engine compartment is filled with a built engine.

The doors are a little fragile and tend to fall apart when you open them. The roof, on the other hand, is very stable. It can be removed because it is only attached to a few knobs. But it is not intended for that. You always have parts of the door frame in your hand. The bonnet is also a massive component that can be opened completely. The tailgate can also be folded, but it always hooks on the roof and the side panels. A lot is broken in the process.

Conclusion:

Visually, the Humvee is very good. Unfortunately, in some places there is a problem with the construction technology and occasionally with the quality of the stones. While CADA uses excellent technical parts, normal knobs have weaknesses here and there when it comes to clamping force.
