Lady in red - mid 60's Diamond T

Here's another of my painted-in-the-summer for winter building...

This time a 1960's Diamond T tilt-hood conventional.

My inspiration came from a Diamond T advertisement showing a red tractor with an aluminum (unpainted) chassis. Here's the ad photo:

Here's my version

I started with an AMT Diamond Reo adding in a resin hood from Spaulding Trading and Shipping that I have had since '07. The other bits and pieces came from the parts box with the front wheels coming from an AMT Autocar A64B kit.

Looking at the photos I see I need to fix the crooked roof lights.. that right lamp is really wonky.
