Here are the pictures of my latest JD project.

This was going to be just a prototype but I spent way too much time on it, it may be the finished project!

Very nice. Having grown up on a farm with JD tractors we had one very similar to this. Your detail is well done. I recognized this as being a JD model D. you done well.

Absolutely love this project. Very well executed. Nice scratch build. Reminds me of driving a tractor for my uncle in the east during summer vacations.

Very nice model! The only major criticism I can note is that you chose not to make a 24-26 spoker D. I would have loved to see your spoked flywheel!

In all seriousness though, you chose great places to add the detail and flare. My Dad has 40+ tractors, mostly JD and including a 25 D, so I know how intricate and detailed these can be in certain places: The caps, air breather, air filter, etc… BRAVO!

Great job on the tractor. It will be an heirloom.

This is absolutely beautiful. My dad lost his best friend several years ago and their favorite tractor in his friends collection was his JD model D. My dad has really taken to projects on the new scroll saw he purchased recently. I am sure he would be overjoyed if he could find the pattern to make this one and the steel wheel JD model D that you have made. Does anyone know where he could find the patterns?
