Looks like its built to handle anything! Are you going to use a servo to raise and lower it? One of those small hydrolic units would be awesome on this truck, but Im sure their crazy expensive..Im sure what ever you do will turn out cool!!

Yea,RJB!I would love to put hydraulics on this. BUT two big factors.
#1 MONEY!
#2 Space!
On this build don't have either to play with.
Thanks for the complement!

STUFF, Really,THANKS!
RJB,this is what holds blocks in track. Thanks! For the comment.

Losi man,sat down w/Bud last week,& struggled w/trying to set up radio.
After a couple of hrs,got ****ed off & set aside for a while,as soon as this is done I'm on Bud till it's perfect. Thanks for the complement!
Yea Mog,I've always loved snowplows! Have been wanting to build one of these every since started this hobby.BUT I was ascaired! Didn't feel my skills were good enough to pull it off. Now after 4 yrs I felt I was up for this task.(feeling brave) So far I'm feeling good about this build.That! could change at any time.Wouldn't be much fun in AZ w/snowplow.
Well here's a pic of wing in full up position.

Started on front plow,Here's before curl is formed in blade.

Here's after.




Thanks for taking a look!

Going to have to sell it when the house sells again! Nice heat and bend work on PVC for that curl. I get frustrated as hell with that.

Nice work with the PVC Freddy, thats what i always use, only bad part is its a little thick for that scale look, but as its been said soo many times you can only go so far.

Truck is looking great cant wait for a vid of it working.

It's been a couple of days now Freddy, where's the ?

I'm being deprived of a great build and progress.

We just got 6 more inches of snow dumped on us and I'm wishing I had a rig to move it, but for now I will just sit and watch your build.
