I have the Ford N series in full scale. This is a 12:1 scale of my 1949 9N. Detailed down to the drain plugs. This was the first tractor that I made tractor tires for. I had to make a machine to make the tires. It is adaptable to different sized tires. Red Cedar throughout. One of my favorites.

Very cool! Really nice work. I do like those tires too. I imagine that the cedar is pleasant to work with as it’s aromatic too. Have you used black walnut with your pieces? It carves nicely although the Claro Black Walnut can be pretty dense but the grain is interesting.

I took photos of an old, delapedated tractor down at my husband’s family’s farm in Macon, GA. It had the rounded front grill and looked like a good workhorse when it was alive. The design of these old tractors were really quite wonderful, even if a city girl never rode one!

what can we say… real 9N’s are gray… yours is more like Farmall red… but I like yours better.

Not only do you have patience, but you have a great eye for scale and design and you choose the parts that really add the detail.

Three point hitch and implements in your plans?

You’re holding a Ford but wearing a JD hat… then I recall you did ( I think) a JD 2030 and model B… so all is well.

Wonderful work. I’ve enjoyed them… thanks for sharing.
