Chicago Streets & Sanitation Bombardier SW48 Tracked Plow - By Claude Fortin

This very cool little piece of machinery is a Bombardier SW48 tracked plow for sidewalk plowing purposes. Typically Canadian, Claude decided it would match the rest of his fleet, so it's wearing the Chicago streets and sanitation colors. It started with a modified Wiking excavator cab, the tracked section is from a Roco M113 armored vehicle and has been shortened. All the rest is scratchbuilt with styrene. Extra details finish the model and the front plow as well. Claude would like to thank Francois Melancon for the specs.
