I just made this tractor from design to a finished product in just 2 days. This tractor is made from the old design of a John Deere from a Google search. Not sure what the year is. I just google the name and find what inspires me to draw one of these up.
It measures 12” x 7” 5”. The steering wheels turns, the front wheels spin and turn left or right, (manually of course). The back wheels are hand made from a jig on a bandsaw I made. I use various woods that I have laying around to design these. I just love the mix of colors this tractor displays. Yours will have its own unique look depending on the woods available at the time. I will go one step further, if you have a special design you would like me to create I will take on that challenge. We would need to discuss the details before we settle on a price.
The tractor is oiled like all my other items with either watco, forbys, or danish.
It will good sitting on a mantle, bookcase, or played with by your grandchildren when they come over to visit.
Small parts and fragile glued items make up this tractor. Adult supervision is suggested for small children.
No nails or pins other than wood. All of these items are glued and clamped. No metal is used in my items.
Look for my more items to come over the next few months.

I resembles an unstyled A, B, G or GP. I have not heard of a model 424. I like the contrast of the different species you chose.

Thanks, I am sorry I used the wrong terminology. It may be a mixture of pictures. I will take off the 424 and let it go as John Deere. That much I know is right. :)
