Ferguson tractor - DONE

Recommended Posts

I decided to have a crack at the Heller Ferguson tractor. What a beauty. I have rarely seen such precise moulding. One small drawback though, they give you a 1mm nub to attach the rear wheel hub to. Unfortunately mine are going to be fixed.

Off to a great start, I'll have to break mine out one of these days.

Tip on how to make yourself cross-eyed: add fuel lines and plug wires to the little fella.

Added the wheels and steering linkage as well as the brake pedals and linkages. Verrrrrrry delicate!

Nice looking tractor build Pat, and it is a good example of the unusual subject matter that Heller come up with. Maybe the words ' delicate ' and ' tractor ' don't exactly go together in the same sentence? Every once in a while it is a good idea to build something that is not part of your usual theme. That's why I built the Aoshima Mitsubishi Pajero SWB.

I just ordered one from Amazon. After all, the tractor is my namesake.

Almost there. A few details, decals and some very subtle weathering left to do. This has been fun as I learned to drive on a Ford 8N which is very much like this. My uncle's neighbor had a Ferguson just like this except his was all gray.

Nice job.  Used to have one of these in 1:1 scale and restored it.  Thanks for the enjoyable trip down amnesia alley.

Well done.

Peace
