the bob cat isn't a mv what you need is a m29 weasel to round out your collection. I would also suggest a m973 small unity support vehicle only if you plan a static display. if uncle sam can't afford to keel his fleet running it would be my guess your pockets aren't deep enough either

They all have a "purpose" here. Sometimes not a very legitimate purpose, but a purpose all the same! LOL You are right about the Bobcat, but the military did/does use 'em. LOL Thanks Don! Ya know where a M29 can be found in the central US? =)
God bless,
Tony

there are tons of them laying around on the tundra out here. i think the m29 is the only small cat that has a worse record for breaking down than a krusty but there were thousands built during ww2 and quite a few still in use today. one of the best things one can do with them is convert them to nodwell running gear the little studibaker 6 was pretty easy on gas to one could run all day on 15 gallons of gas

Well, Alaska is sort of a jaunt away from me. Shipping would be a tad high. LOL Anyone know of a light tracked vehicle, preferably MV, in the central US?

God bless,
