Adams Leaning Grader

Excellent work. I've photographed a couple with the thought of someday doing a model of one, but its so far down in the stack....

Just for info, its more a construction model then agricultural model although I'm sure so were used for making terraces. Their primary use was in road maintenance before the advent of the self contained motor grader.

Forgot to ask, what scale is it?

Also the photos I posted are of a No. 8, the model is a No. 11. They made several sizes.

Thanks for the positive feedback. Not really built in a certain scale. Scratch built it from photos

Outstanding model of a historical and unusual (among paper models) apparatus.

Always glad to see models of this type, especially when they reflect so much research and artisanship.
