I made this snow mobile a while ago, tweaked it a bit so it would make a realistic set and then I added this small bit of landscape.
Mys sister made the seals.

You can also support this at Cuusoo.

At the back there's a crane and two solar panels which can fold inwards to protect them from icy winds when necessary.

The doors open Delorean-style. equipment can be atached into the exterior pockets like ski's or backpacks.

I also made a Jeep to go with the snow mobile, you might have seen it before in my Modular Madness contest entry.

It's my most effective 5-wide car design as it can actually fit a minifigure (my other 5-wides don't).

I hope you liked my first post in the Action themes forum  :laugh:
Feel free to support, during the design I had Cuusoo in mind.

:wub: those seals! That is one very fine MOC there, I do like the chunky-ness of arctic vehicles.

The landscaping is fantastic too, very clever SNOTing and I love the little broken off sections of ice-sheet.

Thank you for deciding to post here in Action  :classic:  :thumbup:

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

Thanks a lot, my sister gets really motivated by all these nice comments on her seals, more animals are on the way, I can hardly keep up with building suitable diorama's for them  :laugh:

Totally love the snow-rover with the tracks. And great work with the presentation as well: small details such as the seals really say something about a MOC! Is it easy to work together with your sister? I know I’d have a hard time with my brothers – we all have so different tastes.

I like the snowmobile very much for its good looking exterior and many details. The seals and ice are well done too! :thumbup:  The jeep seems to me not suitable in these ice grounds. Good luck at cuuoso!
