    Expedition to the pole is a nice subject for kids dreams.
    Here's the snowcat from 1958 Belgian Antarctic expedition. The real thing can still be seen in Brussels museum beside a DHC Otter from the same event.

    I remember these! They were used in all of the "polar" war movies.... like "Ice Station Zebra" and such. Neat model!

    Cool. Definitely icy cool. Snowcats, snow tractors, piston bullies, and rollogons is a great thing to model. A zambony might be fun too.

    Tucker Sno_cat

    I loved it and went hunting... If Tintin didn't encounter onr then he should and, in my mind, has.

    The first file was a bit odd. I had to print using the Adobe viewer in my browser.

    I have made a start. :wink:
