This was a real fun project if you like making small parts .The engine has every thing ,starter,generator,oil filter, gas tank power take off three point hitch .you name it, it has it.the hood opens so you can see the engine the tires are the hardest I have ever made. each cleat has to be cut on a angle and theni sanded to fit a 3/4 in radius. there are 26 on each tire.13 right side of tire and 13 left side of tire.

Chuck—- you might be my hero! I love these little vehicles. I just don’t have the patience for all those small parts. I sure enjoy seeing others being so successful with them. Nice looking projects. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the amount of detail you put into those. It reminds my of grandfather’s old Ford tractor. Those machines were made to last.

Having spent many hours on the real omes, I love your model!


It is a MODEL!

Just a question; how much time do you have in that tractor?

We should do a poll and guess!

My Guess is at a minimum of 55 hours! Total including finishing time etc. Not drying time though!
