Here is a 50's Sicard snowremover. Made in Montreal, very popular in eastern Canada-USA.
This one is modeled as a modern day, ex-municipal machine sold to a private contractor in the 90's and then working with minimum maintenance on it.
Scale is 1/25

That is really neat! Is it based on a kit? or scratchbashed? the screws are great! Very interesting prototype too.

That is awesome! Some of those shots, it's really hard to tell it's a model.

I consider myself pretty good at telling a model from the real thing, but this time you had me fooled.
Just by looking at pictures, there is no way of telling that this is a model.

Can anyone point out anything that gives it away?

The tires of a weightless vehice.


I'll make it. If I have to fly the five feet like a birdie.

Thanks guys for your comments.
The tires are the only untouched parts on this model: everything else is either scratchbuild or modified casting of kit parts like the wheels. Evergreen styrene sheets and rods goes a long way when used properly.  ::)

Great job on the paint work and weathering, be interested to know more about your build techniques


Now come on, ---------- don't hold back, --------------------  I know there's lot's more :o

I'm with Hauk on this. I had to look several times. Couldn't really tell at first look.... but the paving surface and background did eventually give it away.
