Fabian's PistenBully 600 Polar


This PB600 was worldwide the first truly scale model of a PB600. It was built by Albert for his nephew Fabian using the new vacuum molded parts. The first run was on March 27th, 2007.

The assembly was quite interesting, because everything was done for the first time: even when one has the idea in his head, the actual assembly is mostly a bit different and sometimes more difficult.

After the model was successfully built and good looking, the company AT modellbau was founded to sell the kit.

Fabian's model was again the test vehicle for the tiller, which was built over Christmas 2007. Albert first tried to solder the aluminum frame with special solder. Although it looked easy when demonstrated at the fair booth, it did not work with different wall thicknesses. Finally the frame was glued with UHU plus endfest 300 and cured in the oven.

The large picture below is a rare photo from April 2008, showing both PB600 Polar of Fabian (front) and Albert (back). The models are still in an early stage.




The model is built on the Graupner chassis and was equipped with metal tracks by Kettenkraxler.

The cockpit and the mirror holders were added at Christmas 2009.

Meanwhile the tiller has been motorized and the new finishers have been added. Next step is to exchange the front mechanism and the snow blade.
