Some years ago I bought a 3454 Unimog construction truck off eBay and this year I made a custom coupling so it would take the snowplough form the 4046 construction truck. Here are some photos of it in action.

The "snow" is just from a roll of cotton wool.

Awesome!
So how'd you do it? 3454 was the first set I ever got, and I remember many hours spent racing it up and down the hallways of my parents house... It came with a mail away certificate for a indian, as well, and when it arrived in the mail, that was it. Almost 30 years later, there is Playmobil under the tree for my own kids... (and hopefully me, too)

It's good to see the spirit of Playmobil has been paased on, Coyote, and I hope there's lots of PM for you too.

I'll post the custom details later today if I can.

It is a great custom and the cotton wool works well. We certainly don't see too many of those down here. :rolleyes: - none in fact.
cheers

Gordon,

Even though I glanced at this snowplough before, I didn't really look at it properly. I love your adaptations, but it's so great to really see the care that you take if all the other stuff as well. I know that your snow isn't even cold, but wow does it look real.

Thanks
