So it's been a long time since I've done any building that wasn't an out-of-the-box set, and I quite liked the challenge of the C-Model contest from a while back (TC5 was it?), so I figured that was where I'd pick up... When I first saw images of 42038, I figured that it would probably have a snow groomer as its B-model. We got something different instead, which was great, but I decided to have a bash at a snow groomer myself anyway. I tried to get as much functionality as possible, at least similar to what the real thing might have. Features are: The front blade can be raised and lowered with a mini LA, controlled via the 2-point gearbox behind the cab The rear blade can be raised and lowered with a mini LA, controlled via the 2-point gearbox The front blade can be tilted left and right from a control behind the cab An extendable winch, which can rotate 360 degrees via the control at the back On with the gratuitous photos: Front and rear blades raised. The controls. The nearest operates the gearbox, while the middle tilts the front blade. The front blade raise and tilt mechanism. The rear blade in the lowered position. The winch controls. All photos available in full size on my Flickr. Hope you all like it
