Russian F O D Blower. Mostly scratch built

While waiting on some stuff to dry on the MAZ 537, I’m working on scratching the F O D Blower . Still need to finish the front casters , bumper mount and all the plumbing and wiring.

@Mousemuffins . Thanks Craig. still much to be done.

I thought you were insane when you said you were going to build this and I’m happy to see I was right.

That is a spectacular collection of evergreen you’ve got going there Chris. Can’t wait to see the truck.

Pretty cool Chris. I have been planning something similar for couple of years now. I saw a documentary on YouTube where US soldiers using a 6x6 deuce and a half and what I think was an F-86 engine to clean runways. I have not started it yet but I did purchase a 1/24 deuce. Just need time. Here is a pic that I snapped of my TV so it’s not very clear but gives you an idea what I mean…
