At long last I can call this finished, well if anyone spots the mistake.... I forgot the door decal on one side!

Some Modelmates snow in a can finishes it off. Its the Revell MAN TGA kit, parts from the winter Unimog kit, and other scratch built and modified bits from the spares box. Thanks to Tim Shaw who went back and got more pictures for me!

Like that one Rich, but you need some grease on that fifth wheel.

Chris.

Ha, once I decide about the sweeper trailer, that wheel is loose and temporary!

That's ok then.

I do want to add a sweeper, but when it drops the sweeper the 5th wheel sits at a very acute angle.

I'd have thought the midlift would be raised to get more traction in the snow. Excellent looking truck though

They may well dump the air for traction, but on the real one that black block is solid metal ballast over the axle, and the sweeper that I nose heavy sits bang over the axle too.

Very nice build. The snow plow is excellent, happy to see this finished. I am still in making one for my 1/87 scale trucks.

Cheers,

Rishikesh
