MUT It looks like you are planning on fitting it to an M1 Abrams. The part looks completely identical to the "M1 Dozer Blade - Perfect Scale Modellbau - Nr. 35101 - 1:35". Only exception is the upper part of the mounting, which is unique to the Challenger. It is however a separate part that is added onto the top of the mount. The only thing you will be missing to fit it the the Abrams should be the mounting brackets/eyes.

Andy Christiaens 25 euro for the Perfect Scale Modelbau M1 Dozer blade, or 18 euro for the Challenger 2 from Trumpeter (with a free tank). Easy choice right?

MUT Yep, I'd have done it that way too. The free tank isn't worth much though. Possibly the worst 1:35 kit I've ever made. That parts don't really fit together very well. It does include a nice bunch of extras though, such as the applique armour on the sides and bow, and the bucket. The extra parts should work well with the Tamiya Challenger 2, or even Challenger 1. In any case, the tank itself will require a fair amount of work to look ok.

Ingo F Hey Andy, i think i got the Dozer Blade from the Challenger 2 kit in my stash. I have already build the tank but without the dozer (tanks with dozer blades are not my favorites ). If you need it, i can search for it and send it to you. Dont need it anyway.
