Did Sunrise ever produce an F unit plow? Is it availble anywhere?

Daniel,

I'm 99% sure they did -- similar to the plows on the SP's Fs so it was kinda big.

Des Plaines Hobbies had a decent stock of Sunrise parts when I was there in October --  Don't remember if there was an F unit plow though.

Daniel:

I have some snowplows squirred away somewhere which I think were made by Sunrise.  Will try and find them tomorrow.

Bob, if you have any of the "modern" ones with the grab irons and MU pockets...  :D

I know I had an F unit plow many moons ago, but I think I filed it off to make a plow for a geep...  Can't remember, it was long ago...

I think the Espee one might work. Does anyone have any in their personal stock? I do have a few modern plows without grab irons. A few grabs from BLMA might work on those.

Thanks, I guess i'll give mark a call. Most of their Sunrise parts have ended up in my private hord in the last month!
