    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.

    An other sowcat available

    There's also a british expedition vehicle model. Same author, it is orange with a long nose. Can find it through - ...again!

    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:

    Here's pics about the other Tucker sno-cat model available, reduced to aprox. 1/72 scale...

    By the way, many thanks to Gill for excellent thread:
