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
You have to be careful here as there are a lot of rumours made up by facebook warriors and the stories continue to grow. I have read some absolute garbage from people who have no idea
Britains told me directly more than once that the Gold ones would come out identified in different trade boxes marked as A. They even were marked different on the invoice from Britains to us
Sure enough within the trade boxes we found different quantities of Gold....
However UTS customers have informed me that on last count we had sent out 5 gold ones marked up without the A.
