Hooray!

There is some fantastic stuff there I didn't know I needed until now.

Brilliant, thanks.

Me too!  Some great airfield accessories in there. 

Here is the link to the ordering page, a bit pricey at about 35 Euro for the typical airfield support truck/set, but they look great.

A Snow Cruiser?  In The One True Scale™?  Oh wow, that is just too absurd not to purchase!

At the price it's likely to be, I may not have any choice about resisting... :rolleyes:

It would be funny to have it half-buried in the snow, being found by a British Antarctic Survey team... :wacko:  Maybe the chunk of ice it floated away on got blown back to land further along the coast by some freak of oceanography?

I just wish they had more school bus choices.  Not every school or apron bus in America is a Type B/C.  Or Ford. :angry:

Heh...  ;D:thumbsup:

You could have a little ring of actually viable snow vehicles gathered around it like a wake: wide-tracked snow-cats, aerosans, skidoos etc... :wacko:

Now that would be something special! A couple of AA or RAC  Track Rovers towing it in to "the nearest qualified garage"
