A fantastic job!

Beautifully crafted.

AS I spent some time on J-D B.s; the rear tires are a little out of proportion. Slightly to large for the real scale.
The pattern designer must have just used a generic tractor tire.

Nice build GR8. Freaked out when I first glimpsed the pictures. Paint on T & J, philistine..????!!!! Though the more I looked at it the green does appear very presentable.

The use of food dye is a great alternative. Only you can know what the real item looks like, but I reckon that the photos do NOT do it injustice.

As you can see from my picture, I know a lot about old John Deeres. I own a ‘49 A. I’m impressed with the accuracy of your work. It is “right on”. I think I need to make one for myself. I’ll do an A.

That is a great looking tractor. You did a superb job. I really like it green. JDs should be green.
