That was cool! It really looks like it does a better job than a 1:1! :lol: Nice video!

That is quite impressive. The detail, right down to the flashing lights is great. Now it's time to make some chains for the tires.. :D

Thanks guys

Some more pictures, almost ready to be painted. Waiting on a 2.5mm tap so I can secure the rams, and I need to run some hydraulic lines. Also have to make a scraper bar for the plow blade. But as you can tell im in no hurry lol.

Image

The chassis mounted servo that works the plow

Image

That pushes the homemade linkage

Image

Which pushes the rod for the plow lift. I will paint it black to help hide it so it looks like the fake hydraulic ram is doing the lifting.

Image

And the working plow blade trip springs, this allows the plow to tilt forward when hitting something solid and hopefully keeps stuff from breaking. If you look closely you can see the hinges just in front of them.

Image

Im pretty happy with how its turning out

I really dig how you did the how it works sequence of pictures. Nice job on the design and the layout of the linkage. I was wondering though how you made the blade itself? Did you use flat aluminum sheet and roll it into the shape?

Thanks

Yes the blade started as a flat sheet and was rolled into shape.
