The only thing that gives it away as a model and not the real thing is your hand. Great work! :rolleyes:

I would have to agree,

the mud looks great. Really like how you did the engine.

Looks like a pretty good replica to start with- but the weathering makes it incredibly cool! I'd rather see an old Fordson 'wearing its old work clothes' than one all restored and dolled up. But I may be biased- my grandfather has a barnful of weathered old Fordsons!
