Storm Chasers Doppler on Wheels "Update"
This is the biggest truck which use the Stormchasers. It's a Doppler On Wheels (DOW). This is used to indicate the structure of severe storms. So they could see a possible tornado or rotation, the intensity of the stormcell and could determine the storm path . I hope you enjoy it. Comments very welcome :)

Quoting Joshua Wurman Sven: I am struggling to send a comment, so this may be a duplicate. This model of a DOW is great. Is there a parts list and/or instructions? I'd love to have a Lego DOW for the Center for Severe Weather Research offices. Joshua Wurman CSWR
Hello Joshua, thank you very much. Such a great comment from the well known developer of the DOW in person honors me a lot. I'm speechless and thank you very much again. Well, the model still exists and i refurbished it some weeks ago. Sadly i don't have a parts list or instructions of it. But it's still possible to build it again with the Lego Digital Designer. So you could get a digital file of the model with instructions. But this needs some time i think. Otherwise i could send you my own model via DHL/USPS or UPS from Germany to the US. What do you think? Btw, do you have a E-Mail where i could contact you personal? It's much easier as here on Mocpages. Excuse any typos or wrong grammar, my English isn't the best ;) Hope you understand all well. Greetings, Sven

Sven: These are very impressive. Do they (does it) still exist? Is there a list of parts or instructions on how to create one? I'd love to have a Lego DOW at the Center for Severe Weather Research. Josh Wurman CSWR

Quoting michael touse i have my own version of the doppler on wheels and have a storm research vehicle with armor that drops so it can sit in a tornado.
Hey Michael, nice to read that. You should upload them. Btw, have you seen my TIV and Dominator?

Quoting michael touse I think that you should send to cuso (If you want) and if enough people like it might become a cuso set.
Thanks a lot Michael, this is really kind of you. Will think about. Now it's time to continue the work on my new FDNY Hazmat ;)
