    Ok this is a little nuts :shock: but it was good fun doing it and that's what it's all about :D
    I think the kit was given to me (from memory) and it is an original Revell pop, weighs about
    5kg's with allthe bog in it........ Which means it would go straight through the ice with those little skis on
    :lol:
    Like I said built for fun.
    Cheers and best wishes
    Jim

    He He! I like it!! Actually, I think it was tried out! I seem to recall seeing a pic somewhere, of a Canadian Beau, where skis were fitted as an experiment. Darn! I'll have to go on a pic hunt now!
