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've been looking on Ebay for the Vaderstad Rapid and Carrier. I did see a Horsch cultivator a few weeks back, but at the time did not realise that it was something I had seen on the back of the T8. I had been so used to seeing it with a Sumo Trio 4.5 behind it and it was only after I saw my photo again, that I realised they had a Horsch too.
Farmall Model A
I asked earlier if any of the Model A’s were send to Britain during WWII? I thought would be some IH historians out there but no so I had to do my own research. I found that only Ford and David Brown built tractors in Britain during WWII and America’s ‘big 9’ shipped theirs from the USA including the Farmall A.
Anyway Model A completed, painted and decals added. A very unusual tractor with its wheel spacing giving what Farmall called ‘Cultivision’
