The next build of tractors from my past, this time a Ford 4610. I've started this one a bit differently to normal by using an element of cast parts. I'm also going to try and cast the bits as i go along as i fancy doing a Q cab version as well. Anyway, a start on the front bolster and a bit of a mock up of parts to get a feel for the build
i have allways wanted a yellow leyland,so finally im getting round to it,this will not be in 884 johns league,im kopping out by using the uh 1494's chassis,which is inacurate,looks wise and size but i can live with the extra length as its only 3 mm difference,i will be using the cases cab and floorpan,rear wheels are robbed from a uh ford 5000,not sure yet on the ford tyres or the cases tyres for the rear,front tyres look to big,so i will see if there is another alternative,a big thankyou allready to 884john,valley axe man and Sean for info,all i have done so far is loosely offered up the rear wheels to the case 1494,i can source the yellow paint but only in a tin,i would like an aerosol,Sean has helped me out there,and John and Paul have given me loads of info to help me
I had bought this 1/24 scale MF TE20 a long time ago. It's been stashed away waiting for the right moment to decide on what I was going to do with it. Now I have. Will be adding a few more details here and there, which will not distract from the overall look.
Thank you John, had to do some googling there to understand though 😁 Looks very like another build I have in mind now the track theory has worked, a 1970's Pisten Bully Snow Groomer, again a fascination created by holidays up to Glenshee Ski Centre.
Yes I considered buying the Matchbox one for dimensions. There are two on a farm along the A93 up to Glenshee Ski Centre that always caught my eye when we were there on holiday. Should fit in nicely with the snow gear I currently have, and with a forestry dio idea I'd like to eventually make.
