My Toy building days ! My nephews needed to have the same machinery I had on the farm. Unable to find a pull-behind Combine I decided to make them. Combines, Rock Picker, Swather and Liquid Fert. Band wagon were done at 1/16 th scale. The Elevators and barns, seed plant building were For 1/64 th scale toys. I had built my entire farm yard of 1 6/4th scale. It took almost an entire sheet of plywood to set it up on. My nephews are all in there 20’s now and the toys and building have been handed out. (I am not certain WHY. But I got the title of being favorite place to visit back then. ) My joy was the yellow rock picker. I spent weeks on that thing , making it safe for kids YET able to pickup peanuts as they pulled it across the floor.
Yep. Today I still get down on the floor with grand kids and play.
