The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
This is mostly correct , although the 8N did not have any "Ferguson System' markings-it still had the Ferguson 3 point implement hitch system-THAT is and was Harry Fergusons only contribution to the Ford tractors . By 1947-48 when the 8N was coming out Henry Ford himself was either too old or died to be involved with production-Henry Ford II and Harry Ferguson were in a patent battle as to who owned the 3 point system-The Ferguson 3 point system is the same basic idea being made today on most modern tractors . Google Harry Ferguson and read about the "Hand Shake Deal" To my mind , trying to make a Ford out of the Ferguson is like trying to turn a IH Scout into a first gen Bronco=Close but no cigar ! Besides that-Ertl made a very nice 9N in diecast that looks like it could have been a Franklin or Danbury Mint . The one I have is either 1/24 or 1/25 and is very nice-No need to do any thing to it .
Sorry-this project is back in the box and in storage at the minute , I'll take a look this weekend and If I can find it I'll take a few pictures and post them . I think these old AMT Comets might be off scale a bit much like the Johan Ramblers were-you'd think the '67 Mustang would be a tad bigger and as long or longer than the Falcon/Comet of this generation . I remember adding .020 flat stock around the fender edges to build it up and can be seen in the first picture . The Mustang inter fenders and fire wall are glued in permanently with the chassis cut just past the curve of the fire wall to the flat under floor-then when the rear part of the chassis and rear wheels are set in place there is about an inch gap-I need to find another Mustang donor to stretch the floor-but when I get the rear section done it will have to go in last so I can get the glass and interior tub into the body before the rear section of the chassis goes in . I've got to the point with this project and a few others That I'm not opening sealed mint kits to steal a few parts anymore so until I find donor parts this one is on hold Chris
