Default Frandee Logo

Plain and simple!

Looking for a LOGO if there ever was one, if anyone got any input -feel free to pitch in, otherwise I'll have to create my own I guess...

p.s. per Utah Research papers, they are referring to most models as "snoshu" as well, is that so or only to ones with the ski in the front?!

Bud, you are getting closer every time. Although it only has two tracks, it looks to be four wheel drive. Can't what to see your final build. Good Shu!

I have the logo, was able to trace it full scale from my cat. Had it made by a co-worker that makes vinyl lettering. He could make you a couple also. If interested PM me and I will get you his contact information.

Nikson, by the way, don't use those military tires. Mine had them on it and it destroyed the grousers. I had to fabricate 25 of them myself, and weld repair about 60 of the original ones I was able to salvage, very time consuming.

Also, I believe all the Frandee models were refereed to as the Sno-Shu. I also believe all the models through model D originally had a ski, I am not sure about the model E. However, I believe it may have also, because the photos i have seen of model E's have the same attachment tubing on the front and a place for the steering shaft as my Model D.

I'm able to make my own lettering/designs as long as I got something to "draw off" if that makes sense... Just havent found anything "original" on the logo, how original do you know/you aware of yours to be? Is that the font/style was used for the Frandee? Or this is just something that was done aftermarket by another person (as in non-factory)

That was my impression as well, that most of the Frandees were SNOSHU's as well...

You know it, I thought I should be asking you questions instead of the other way around :)

I think that might be the reason why those tires are in the middle as idlers, for how it will have to do, will see how it goes along...

Will keep in mind, thanks for heads up!
