/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/unsure.gifI'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to mount the snowplow on a USAT SD70 MAC. I don't want to  "modify" anything if there is a way to get the plow to fit over the air hoses./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif

Slide the plow up and threw the air hoses.There are small tabs on the back of the plow that fit into the coresponding wholes pre drilled in the pilot,snap in and I added some modelers glue on the backside for added strength. Then add the knock out portion of your plow, if you wish.
Work very carefully on your 70mac,as I have already found out smaller detail parts are very delicate and are broken easilly.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the help, I put a couple dabs of glue on the plow tabs, snapped the plow in and let the glue dry. The air hoses fit better when placed up through the cut-out in plow, a little bit of glue and patience seemed to do the trick.

But there are parts left over (six grab irons)????? No clue as where to mount them.

Looks GREAT ! Not a modeler of UP but, do like the flag units.Now it's time to get a little weathering on there. :)
