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.

P8038904-vi.jpg

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.

P8208935-vi.jpg

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

P8208950-vi.jpg

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

P8208958-vi.jpg

The hood opens too.

P8208940-vi.jpg

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

P8208947-vi.jpg

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.....

P3154060-vi.jpg

Ertl's Bobcat model 325 compact excavator.

P3154061-vi.jpg

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

P3304382-vi.jpg

Bobcat S250 skid loader.

P3304387-vi.jpg

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

P5145311-vi.jpg

Bobcat T200 skid loader.

P5145312-vi.jpg

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.

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.

Here's the little Deere.

DSCF3012-vi.jpg

Notice how they cut corners on the steering wheel.

DSCF3013-vi.jpg

I would have expected the X series to dwarf the Kubota but it's the other way around.

DSCF3014-vi.jpg

I'm thinking someone's scales/sizes are mixed up. I've sat on an X series and it's bigger than it shows here.

DSCF3015-vi.jpg

The Deere fits perfectly in the bed.

DSCF3016-vi.jpg

The Kubota doesn't.

Bigtruck, If you're looking for compact equipment, here are some of the Bobcats that have been avaliable over time. Many of these are discontinued, but most can be found on ebay. I think the oldest one I have in the collection there is from roughly 1998.
