Here is a JD tractor that was made by Ertl back in the mid 60's. It is 1/16 die-cast and someone had replaced the front wheels and the rear wheels were broken.

As Found

Filled in the seams and added a PTO shaft and 3 point hitch brackets

Made a custom steering column and added levers.

Added 3 point hitch and converted it to a wide front. Plus nice coat of paint.

Some duals, some fat front tires, front weights and decals and it's ready for the museum.

Thats a great looking Deere Tom! Just proof that diecast is part of the hobby. Great work. What is that piece you used for the steering wheels column?
