MH Pony 1/43 Tractor Kit

Recommended Posts

Ray, The screw heads still show a little so as I mentioned, they had to come off. I just hit them with the Dremel.  The decal is on a red background so the paint is going to have to match that rather close. Digging through my test spoons I found MM lacquer Flame Red a near perfect match.

After seeing how nice it looked in red, I decided the flat disc steering wheel was not going to work either. Off to the parts bins.

Nice!

I found a steering wheel and decided to add an air cleaner.  I also black washed the grill.  This was a fun quick build.

Loaded ready for the tractor show.

Wow Awesome, Steering wheel looks great. My grandfather had a steel wheel Massey-Harris GP. He called it Massey grey. Loved that thing, not sure what happened to it when he past.

Nice!!! I had 2 MH Pacers which look like a Pony but has a larger engine. They even use the same sheet metal. I would like to get hold of one of those to model my old tractor. Do you know where I could find one?100_0558.thumb.JPG.5e08c648a564260619720

Thanks for the kind words. 

Jonothan, Is this the GP your talking about? :)

 

Brian, That is a very nice looking tractor.  I bought this kit at least 20-25 yrs ago and it cam in a small clear bag with no markings. I don't remember who cast these or where I bought it, sorry 

 I have a Pony in 1/16 scale that was made by JLE Scale Models. Should be able to find one of these for around $30.00. Universal Hobbies has a 1/43 that is more detailed than the kit I built for around $18.00. I think I saw that UH will also be doing a high detailed 1/16 scale Pony. 

JLE 1/16

I would guess a real one of these would be worth some money today.

Thanks.  The barn was made by Ohio Art. It is tin but only 8 in wide.  The JD and Ford tractors are Ertl 1/43.
