  2. Been a bit quiet recently with this havent had time to sort anything out, but was a nice day today and that time of year so took a couple of models and a board up the field and got some shots, really pleased with how they turned out a proper 1965/66 scene

  3. Thought I’d start a topic for some of the models I’ve made past and present. I tend to focus on models that I’ve used or see locally to me. First up is what my main focus has been over lockdown and over winter making hedge trimmers. I’ve made a good few McConnels and also a Shelbourne Reynolds HD760T. Pictures speak a thousand words, if anyone has any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

  4. Today’s arrival is some what bittersweet. I’ve been looking forward to receiving this Minitrac 286 Super Hayliner baler for a good while, finally delivered today albeit a few months late and incurring import charges which I wouldn’t have applied had it been on time but that is down to manufacturing and shipping problems because of the current situation. Unfortunately it has suffered a bit of damage in transit, a wheel parting from the axle and the pto shaft and a reel height guide snapping off but hopefully all will be put right, minitrac are sending me a new shaft and the other parts should g

  6. There's not been much time for models this past month, but things are starting to quieten down a bit now, so I've been able to get back to the cutting mat for an hour or two. Whilst waiting for the decals for the Leylands I've got a batch of Case's and IH's to finish, so a bit of progress on the Case IH 685 loader tractor.

  11. Second is a second hand Three Oaks built, K2 1000 rear discharge spreader. It looks to have been an ex hire machine with a couple of bits to put right. The slurry door needs a coat of paint and a touch up on the rest of the model here and there as well as the bed chains are loose in places but otherwise a cracking model although I think it looks bigger than a 10 ton, possible 12?

  12. After five days of use our dealer came to pick up the Fendt 936. What a fantastic tractor it is, its done everything effortlessly and helped us make a decision as well. Currently we spray our own cereal crops with our Lemken/ Fendt 720 combination but our maize is tended by a contractor who sprays chemicals and liquid fertilizer for us, but not this year. We were looking to bring it in house but werent sure weather to go self propelled or trailed, now we know. A machine like the 936 would be able to incorporate all our maize spraying requirements with big trailed unit and not effect its othe

  15. Not posted for quite a while in here, I thought I was moving house so I dismantled everything. In the end we didn't move and I have only recently been able to put the Farm back together, with a few adjustments. A replacement has made its way to the Lantau Farm's, we have replaced the Claas Tucano and Claas Lexion 760 with one Claas 8900TT. We plan to keep the 12m existing Claas header for the fields which have been switched to 12m CTF. Just finished up the last check over of the Lexion 760 in the workshop before it is shipped of.

  16. So it's been a bit slow the lads have been coming hear and there to do bits to the new cow shed. It's OK as long as its finished before silage time as were hoping to make as much hay this year and store it in the top end of the shed. Had to clean the cows out in the yard the other day used the skidsteer and just loaded it straight into the spreader and away with it. As it's still cold up here in Cumbria the grass still hasn't started to grow. No meadows are empty yet. So still ok to get that muck out.

  17. A couple of additions. Firstly another NZG digger, this time a 550, as with the 4550 it has minor damage, this time a pin missing from the front loader and cracked windows but as I’m planning on eventually adding extra detail that doesn’t matter.

  26. Home for the weekend and with a dash of sun I decided to get Grouse Knowl out of storage for a few photos. I also wanted to check if any damp had got to it where I'm storing it in my shed, thankfully it hadn't! Set up a scene of clearing away after finishing the indoor lambing.

  33. The Fendt 936 arrived on Friday with its new running gear in place. We didnt want the larger tyres that were fitted to it during its demo and asked for them to be replaced with the more popular size of 710/75/R42s x 600/65/R34s. We have also tracked down a large double axle Amazone Sprayer to go behind the 936. We will start using this rig shortly on all our Maize cropping. The 936 is an awesome bit of kit and everyone wants to drive it. Also the new Gen 6 Fendt 724 will arrive in June. Our secondhand Gen 2 Fendt 716 has been very useful, in fact so useful we are buying a second one, a

  35. So it's been all go hear on Hazelhead farm. Finally managed to get the planning for the new shed passed, so the lads turned up with the diggers on late Tuesday night to get a early start stripping off. Had one of the best digger drivers he could work them machines with his eyes closed. Had to remove a far bit of top soil to hit the good ground but hasn't gone to wast as it'll do for the meadows in the dips to level off. Diesel bowser got dropped off in yard so we took it over to the site for them on the gator. As were still in full swing with lambing Matthew had to lead the c

  40. I decided to improve my Fendt 942 by removing its large rims which were based fairly realistically on 750/ R44 x 650/R38s by Wiking. And its very undetailed rubber tyres😠 So I found a set of wheels/tyres off the previous Wiking Fendt 939. And then with some Fendt spray paint and a few subtle modifications I fitted the wheels and replica 710/75/R42 X 600/65/R34s tyres. I also redecalled it as a 936 as there are lots of the gen 5 versions running around here and I already know of two 936 gen 6s so I expect they will be more popular than the 942s. Anyways the extra detail on the tyres and r

  45. We sent out the Fendt 724 out on some additional fertilizer spreading work this week to assist the bigger wheeled Amazone rig keep on top of things. We had to dual up her back wheels due to the softness of ground we still have across the farm. Certain fields just wont allow the JD/ Amazone wheeled rig to travel so the dual Fendt is attempting to get some much needed fertilizer on the crops. On Saturday morning our main contractor Bill Legge dropped in with his new Kockerling Vector cultivator on the back of a Fendt MT940 Demonstrator tractor from Thurlow Nunns, he is due to start working

  46. Today we took delivery of a 7 metre Zurn whole crop header from our local John Deere dealer. It was their demo model last year with little wear on it and fits our Jag with no problems. The Claas dealer had a 5 metre version available but we felt 7m was best for the big Jaguar and the deal was to good to miss! And frankly I prefer the yellow colour over the Claas green colour version.
