    Hi guys,

    I finally finished my International S-series snowplow model. It's made after the actual truck that plowed my road in upstate NY as a kid. Viking plows, Tenco sander, lots and lots of scratchbuilding. In fact, the only thing not scratchbuilt is the frame, cab, and engine. Everything else was fabricated by hand. Took me just about a year to do on and off, but I'm back in the model plow building business!! Enjoy!

    I always used to make custom farm toys back when I was a little younger. I always enjoyed making things. I'll take a few pics of a few things I made, but nothing compares to this, that plow is really really impresive! Great Job!!!!

    That is great model my friend! I build race cars & know what I put into them,I can't fathom what you have in this one.

    There was an incredible plow on the contest table at Fulton,NY a few weeks ago. NYS DOT Rt.81 double winger. I'll see if I can find a pic of it.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. There is definitely a lot of time and patience that goes into making one of these. As for the Fulton show, I normally attend that every year, but since moving west I don't get to it as often. I did see and do have photos of the NYSDOT plow, it was pretty impressive.

    thats really impressive!

    im not even sure what to say, it looks so damn real, the weathering is crazy accurate

    looks like it could be used in some movie modeling.

    i wouldnt even know how to make little parts so accurate looking like that, haha

    Nice job!!!
