Dean needed a Tamiya acrylic that wasn't available in K/W so I decided to drop in my local hobby shop to pick one up for him and look what I found !

Half built, no radio or servos for the speed controllers but I will put a Clark board in there. Lots of flashing LEDs as well !

Don't worry about it Mike....... It is already on its way.

When I move over to IBU I have surplus Clark boards so I have been selling them and re-using them on other stuff like this one.

Well thanks to Airbrushler for the amazing paint job the old classic comes back to life.......... I put in a PzIII Clark board but "disabled" the cannon and the MG firing. Will also put in amber blinker and spot lights on the cab when they showed up. Also got an updated plow from the Bliazzard SR/FR series and will fit it on somehow.

Next battle day in the snow it will be there.

Yup, but don't need the chassis. Mine is in much better shape than that one. Nice chassis thought I have to say, will see how it performs in the snow.

You can actually get a new top for it and you are good to go. No plow still.

The small plow you have for it is plenty. I've got a Blizzard with plow. It's more fun without the plow!

Do you have a SR or FR ? Newer ones I assumed not the old DX like mine or the chain driven EV ? 

I just mouted it onto the old metal plow, but then realized that I actually have mounted upside down, so I took out the old metal plow, flip it and put it on properly. Have to adjust the servo linkage arm to get it to raise high enough for clearance.

Nice, the newer SR/FR has a much nicer body and plow mechanism, but I think the DX/EV is s little bigger (5 roadwheels plus sprockets). Don't think the metal tracks would fit either as they are a little shorter.

Love the lights.

I guess I still a whole year to go before I get to play in the snow.
