I believe there is at least one Bear that already has an RC snowkat.

"We've already got one!"


"You've already got one?"

"I told them we've already go one he he he"

By the way, I think it is MWP that actually does have one...

The available r/c models are okay. I wanted mine to resemble and handle like the real thing so I have started to build my own. i have a thread following my build over on www.scale4x4rc.org, http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=32731

Here are a few pics of my progress:

^^^Very cool, and I thought duct-taping a little plow to the front of my ClodBuster was a revolutionary idea...  btw, it didn't work very well at all for me.  It's way more fun to play with it in the snow without the plow taped on it.  Your project is looking seriously awesome!

I sent for it Friday - seriously! I told my 11 years old that if Lego ever made a groomer I would buy one and he could put it together for me. Sure enough the new catalog came last week and there was a groomer!

I had seen one before that someone had made with various other Lego sets.

I have a collection of groomers at various sizes...

 Yeah, that thing is cool. Once you finish, you should introduce it to PSIman.

Agreed, CR0SS - that is seriously cool - cooler than an Alaskan snow-storm...

A few of my groomer toys -- just wish I could find a few other than Pisten Bullys (cool cats but I also want some Bombardiers/Camoplast, Tuckers or Prinoths amongst others). I have three I found in Breckenridge, one at the New England Ski Museum, and one at a St. Anton, Austria toy shop.

I do not understand the love of toymakers and the Pisten Bully.

They are sweet looking groomers but so are some of the others.

I am anxious to see your finished cat -- nice work!!

Well., you do plow professionally .... right?  I'd kinda like to see a "Show off your bad arsed plowing rig" thread here sometime. 

And nice toy MWP.  And,  nice job by the kid getting it together.  Now where did I put that M-80

Only problem now is my son wants to keep it!  I told him we can share and play together nicely.

It is great when you have kids and it gives you an excuse to buy toys.

Not to be a downer or anything, but I'd like to get that radio controlled one and light it on fire and then shoot at it.
