Custom 1/16th Scale Nylint SNOGO Snowblower project.
« on: November 16, 2013, 08:40:26 PM »
Hello to everyone on the forum - I've enjoyed reading your excellent posts.  Thought I might share a couple of my recent projects.  I built this custom Nylint SNOGO Snowblower Truck earlier this year.  This picture is of a real SNOGO on a Ford Chassis.



I started out with a Nylint 1960 Cab mated to a Nylint Adams Traveloader engine compartment.  Then, added rear fenders from a Tonka Airport Tractor and used the front axle from the same as the upper yolk behind the cab.  Front lights are from a Nylint Missile Launcher.

The front snowblower is totally custom - much of the sheet metal is from my Nylint junkyard.  The gear cover on the driver's side of the snowblower is also from the Adams Traveloader.  The chute is made out of an Ertl hay elevator.  The three bi-directional augers were custom-built by a specialized auger manufacturer, and they were expensive!

Custom decals, large Nylint tires with Marx wheels, a Nylint interior and other various bits all work together to make a nice looking custom one-of-a-kind machine.  I hope you all enjoy.  James

Fantastic Snow Blower. It looks as if could have come straight from a Nylint catalog. Fifty years ago I would have traded my nitwit brother to have something like that.
