Fordson F Tractor

I finally built this tractor, I have had it for 18 months. The build instructions were very vauge, only a few outline drawings. I stand corrected but I have some pic's of the model built by Hangman about 2 years ago and I used these to direct the build. Not as good as his one but I am sure some of you will comment and I welcome this, good or bad.

You're too modest. That came out great. I like the base and background as well. It really sets the model off nicely.

That's a great-looking model. Love the engine detail and the diorama setting is wonderful. Well done!

Looks very good.
There is a print of that tractor model around here somewhere that has been waiting to get built for years.

I am a John Deere man all the way, but your build is awesome! I love the way you made the diorama and weathered it.

My only critique is "if it ain't green it ain't a real machine!"

Thank you for sharing,
Matt

Looks great to me

Thank you all for commenting on the Fordson, I know all Americans with a leaning towards agricultural equipment are very pro JD in green, I personally like all vintage tractors no matter what make, I have drawn a few JD tractors and will take the privalage of showing one, it is a JD Model A of 1934. I have always been more of a Massey and Farmall person, although Ferguson for me will always be an all time favorite.Looks like I cannot attach a pic will put it into "other things we do". Vermin King, yes very much so, the JD model D came out in 1924 and followed the "Waterloo Boy"
