This would be a great gift for my son https://woodworkingweb.com/creations/917-john-deere-9330-wood-model

Where should I start? I’d like to find a plan for a similar project.

I have a great grandson who races mini Indy cars, so my first thought was to start with a small V8 engine.
You might want to start with LarryN’s articulated tractor here on Lumberjocks and then do some more
research on similar projects here on the site.

Back when I used to think I was a hot rod builder, we would buy engines from a local auto recycling company.
They would rate them and charge more for the better ones, if we were going to soup it up we would
buy one of less expensive ones and then rebuild it. But the motors of 30 years ago were a lot easier to
rebuild than these new ones.

Why don’t you start with the Link that you’ve posted. He MIGHT be able to give you some advice. Or maybe Google “John Deere 9330 Wooden Model”. I doubt that you’ll get many actual models though.

Try THIS

It was all Hand Made and Designed by Scott Kidman, including the Motor (Engine)

There has been no coloring added of any kind. It’ all the natural colors of many types of wood. No Plastics or Metal. He’s got 200 Hours into this one.

Beautiful Piece of “Art”.

I doubt that there is a Plan.

Nicholas:

Thanks for replying and watching your Posts. Much appreciated! Also Posting his Website

All to many on here don’t do that.

Yes. This guy makes some Beautiful Vehicles. A trip to his website will start you drooling for sure.

Absolutely Nicholas! I think what really adds to it is that none of them have any coloring added

They’re all the natural color of the wood. He must have one heck of a collection of exotic wood.

Rick

EDIT: I went and had another look at his Web Site. Lord Love A Duck! His selection is Incredible! Found some Info on pricing. My opinion only, but I think He’s Way Low on his prices.

Wonder if He’d send one or two up here to Canada?

That’s right. And it’s hard to spot at first glance yet it makes all the difference.
