Thats really cool man! I plan on getting the same trailer for my pro mod nova and a drag strip diorama. Mine will be towed by a 64 Chevy. Glad to see yours went together well :(

Ken, that is awesome! Never thought that trailer was that big. All it needs is a racing Corvette :wink:

Thanks,

There's a pair of Kubotas (A ZTR and a tractor) and Spec Cast has a brand new JD Z series tractor.

There's also a Kubota tractor with front and rear buckets and a Kubota ATV/utility truck.

There's also a few of the compact excavators (Kubota and Bobcat) plus at least two Bobcats (one with wheels, one with tracks).

If you need pics. of the above, say the word. I have most of them. My lawn service company will eventually have an open trailer.:( More fun to show off the toys that way.

Very nice job BTW.

The smallest you say? :D

Ok.

Posted Image

We'll start with the Kubotas. T1870 lawn tractor. Steering positionable and the hood opens. Nicely detailed diesel under that hood and it's more tractor than I drive at work.

Posted Image

ZD28 ZTR (Zero Turn Radius). Front wheels "steer" and the engine cover opens to reveal a nicely detailed diesel.

Posted Image

BX22 Compact diesel 4x4 tractor with LA210 bucket loader and BT600 backhoe. EVERYTHING is positionable.

Posted Image

The hood opens too.

Posted Image

RTV900 Utility Vehicle. Most everything is positionable on this one too.

Posted Image

Steering, "hood", dump bed dumps, roof is removable.

All of them are top quality and can be found on eBay. That's where I got mine and expect to pay about $25 each. There's 2 compact excavators in the series which I haven't got yet. Basically, I can decide which of the two I want/need. I want the smallest of the two but can't figure out which that is. ;)

There's also a 30 or 40 hp tractor in the series. Same price range.

I'll show you some of the Bobcats tomorrow.

Aw heck. Seeing as I'm signed in to Fotki.....

Posted Image

Ertl's Bobcat model 325 compact excavator.

Posted Image

Again, most everything is positionable. Not the same quality as the Kubotas but still must haves in my book.

Posted Image

Bobcat S250 skid loader.

Posted Image

Even has the safety bar/belt in the "cockpit".

Posted Image

Bobcat T200 skid loader.

Posted Image

It's been awhile but I think I paid about $20 each for the Bobcats. As I Said before, not the same quality but still gotta haves for me.

My John Deere X series tractor isn't here yet. I'll show you that once it gets here.

Those are some amazingly realistic looking builds.

BT, I really like your detail, even the inside trailer walls look like it has been used and things rubbed against them.

Can Am, if that figure was not in the photo I would have thought these were advertising photos of the real equipment.

Very, very nice builds.

Steve, I don't think he built them...
They were purchased that way. Little Chinese girls built them most likely :D

But, they do look pretty neat none the less.

Bingo Jairus. They are all neat little diecasts I bought. All are made by Ertl but you'll never see it on the Kubota boxes.

You sure aren't. Still debating whether if I need/want the Versahandler.

I have one of those VersaHandlers, and I reallly like it. It looks good with a junker or an engine on the forks. Not sure if this thing could actually pick up a car, but I know my Caterpillar IT18F will.
