Farm Equipment Builds

I just completed a new 1/64 scale farm tractor. It is a model of a 1970 International Harvester 1466. I design my own models and would love some input from the awesome builders I see here.

I am also looking for others who are building farm equipment out there.

That's wonderful. And from scratch! Very nice.

If I could make a suggestion, your tractor tires are awfully shiny. Did you use photo paper? Krylon clear matte would help that.

Another suggestion is to have the windows a light gray or blue. The white looks a tad 'unfinished' IMO.

But it is a very nice model. Alas, my experience with IH deals with much, much older models. I don't remember if it was an 'H' or 'Super H' that we used the PTO to run the old saw mill.

Nice model! Someone mentioned using Liquid Electrical Tape for tires. It is a liquid rubber product and dries flat like tire rubber.

I do some farm stuff, more into the antique ones. Started a build thread on the Modelik Ursus here. Got sidetracked on it and need to get back and finish it off.

You've done well in designing and scratchbuilding the IH 1466 tractor. The only nitpick I have is for you to edge-color the model pieces before you assemble them. This will get rid of those unsightly white lines. Other than that and what VK suggested I think you have done a good job.

I like this too. I would download and build!
What size or scale is it
I know MANY who would get on if it was 1/25
Look like the OLD Ertl 'Plastic' kit that demands a MINT
worth of cash for now
Too bad the last re-issue of the 2 J-D pieces did not sell so well

All thank you so much for the great input. I use plain bond paper and a Dell laser printer. So my blacks are all glossy. I will try some of the tips for the tires and see how it goes. I like the cab glass input thank you. I use AutoCAD for my design software I see what I can do for a better color there. As for the edges I like them for contrast when I display at a farm toy show. It is all that distinguishes my models from the cast metal ones.

Using a laser printer, I would definitely buy two cans of clear coat: Krylon Matte and Krylon Satin. Use the matte finish to tone down the gloss on parts that you don't want to be as shiny. Use the Satin to just protect the printing on your model. Laser has a tendency to flake over time, and the clear coat will help prevent that

Do you apply it before you cut the pieces out or after semi assembly?

I apply two very light coats before cutting and another two light coats when done. In the case of this model, I'd apply the last coats to the tire/wheel assemblies before attaching to the chassis.

I see you are in Virginia, so you should be able to find it in the spray paint aisle at Walmart
