John Deere Backhoe

Recommended Posts

Just finished up this vintage ERTL John Deere Backhoe.  The kit was missing the decals but I had a tight deadline to get it finished as it was built as a gift for someone.  Definitely a fun build.  ERTL kits just seem to fall together.

Like the details, color looks spot on. A very nice build. Whoever gets it should be proud.

Very nice, looks perfect. The Dio is spot on too. You did a great job.

 

I want to do one of these and a Dozer, the Dozer is being reissued, hope this does too.

Thanks for the comments.  Its a surprise gift that went to my cousin's husband.  He had a excavating company with dumptrucks and backhoes.  I already built him a Ford dumptruck and IH S Series salt spreader and this is just another to add to his collection.  He loved it.  I went to the John Deere dealer and the correct shade of yellow is actually a light yellow but I liked the darker one so I bought the 1995 and newer construction yellow paint.  I hope they reissue this kit too.
