Check this out. This would be a cool heavy hauler load out:

M1 Abrahms tank

I was wondering does anybody make farm implements any more and how about construction equipment?

Oh, found my load out when I build a heavy hauler;

AMT made both a John Deere tractor and backhoe in kit forms, as well as a Massey Ferguson tractor (I think). AMT also did a (once) CAT D8 dozer, I think all but the Massey tractor were reissued as late as 2000-2004, and the bulldozer in that last reissue carried no CAT markings.

There are a few 1/25 tank kits available, Tamiya did a Tiger, a Centurian and I think a Sherman. I think Trumpeter and / or Dragon have done some 1/25 armor too.

Anyone know of a 1/24-25 scale Hummer? I hauled one once on my flatbed a few years back, and would love to find some to make a load.

Revell has some H-1s in different configurations.

its a 68 GMC CRACKERBOX WITH A 671 DETROIT :)

You know I thought about that after I posted. They look similar, lol. My bad. Nice truck though. Where does the term cracker box come from?

Ran across these guys today; not inexpensive, but in scale and a good variety.

I like that link, Mike! I could see a warehouse diorama with some of the forklifts, HMMMM....that gives me an idea! Oh, wait, I had that idea for a long time! :P

I know! I spent waay too much time going 'Oooh, shiny!'. Good thing I can get away with stuff like that at work :lol: The irony is that while I had load ideas floating around in the back of my mind, at that moment I was looking for diesel engine detailing ideas. Google works in mysterious ways.....

You'll find that that most of the JD farm equipment from Wal Mart is 1/32 scale. Same goes for the regular Ertl farm toys. 1/25-1/24 isn't very popular in the farm toy world, 1/64, 1/50, 1/32, and 1/16 are the popular scales, with a few 1/12 and 1/8 scale replicas available as well.

One thing I have found in 1/25, though, is Bobcats. Used to see them at the local farm stores, but they haven't had them for a while. You might check the Bobcat dealers or farm toy specialty stores.

I've discovered that to be very true. I haul lots of combines and tractors to Case and John Deere dealers. Many will have a Huge selection of toys. Well detailed, too. None on 1/24-25 though. I look everytime I deliver.
