The snow slidegate valve and the work on the light are great

You have more information about the front light under the main headlight (Orange)?

Thanks Guys. I've been working on a new V plow for the Stroker - Been in the Carribean for a week - pics soon!

Captain - great lighting on that ford, and those mirrors are perfect. You need to get LEDs in those.

Bugs - the orange parking lights in the grill (Wrecker) are LED too. I cut out the faux lights and built boxes with colored acrylic lenses.

Just got back today from Cozumel, Belize, Costa Mia & Roatan (Honduras) on a 7 day cruise.
Sailed on the Norwegian Star from Tampa.

The vacation is over!!! We don't want to hear about you sunburn or the great time on the Lido deck, we want you back on this build! Of course, You're now making me remember my last cruise...twelve days throughout the Mediterranean! Italy, Spain, France, Croatia. Now I'm bummed out...sitting on my couch! Ok, back to work everyone!

OK - back to work.

Made some progress on the 5th wheel hitch and finished the tool box




Also got me some Pajero skins. I think they add a lot. Still need some alloy rims though.


And made some F350 and Stroker badges.


Got started on the V-Plow - Hmmmmmmm

Wow! You ARE back to work! That v plow looks amazing! I'd rather see it in steel, but that is some really nice styrene work. The fifth wheel hitch looks spot on!

You guessed it. I glue them on some thin styrene to make them stand off just a bit. Looks more scale to me.

Kind of hammered down on the V-Plow lately. Yes, all styrene, but it is easy to work with and plenty strong for pushing snow if you make it right.

Rear 'scooper mode' view


Front V-mode


Added some hinged break away blades just like the 1:1


Getting crazy now with scale spring loaded feature.


Some work on the supporting framework. Getting all the angles right so everything sits flat at all blade angles is a pain
Adding some hydraulic rams for scale effect. Will also include some hydro hoses.


Mock-up with a lot of the parts.


Now to start on the truck mount and lifting mechanics. Got the servo mounted in the 'brick'.


I'm working out a matching tailgate mounted salt spreader too
Let me know what you think.
