Had this crazy idea after talking with my best friend today. Build up an M1 Abrams tank and turn it into a civilian heavy snow plow vehicle.  ;D
Changes:
1. Need new plow blade on front.
2. Add warning/flashing lights.
3. Paint in civilian colors and markings.
4. Keep turret and gun, but modify main gun into a flamethrower type system for those really tough snow clearing or "melting" jobs.  ;D

Anything else I should change or add?
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

the boxes on the engine deck to shoot the marker poles into the snow to show its depth ( the mark the mine free lane on the mine plough ones)  :thumbsup:

take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.

Snowblower ?

Could also have a wing plow on each side for clearing a 3 lane hiway in one pass  :thumbsup:

Keep the main gun for dealing with potential avalanche areas. (At least that's what we'll tell them!)

I also like those immense augers/snow throwers that some trains have.  God forbid if someone walked into one of those.... :-\

Remove turret & fit blower (may only need one of these):


Or fit something like this on a turn-table:

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Great ideas guys. There was a link on here or somewhere with some great pics of old Canadian railway plows and some of the drifts they had conquered.
