  4. She’s finally turned green, It’s just cobbled together at the moment, but I was itching to see how she’s going to look! The wheels are still to finish and paint, cab interior to finish painting, glazing, lights etc, but the end is in sight now!

  6. First coat of primer on. There are a few areas that need some attention that the paint has highlighted, so will follow up with some hi build primer to allow the flaws to be sanded out

  7. Yesterday’s attempt at picking these up didn’t quite go to plan but today was more successful. A short trip to see John collect these 2 absolute stunning models.

  9. Trailer now sorted, the wide wheels makes it just a bit wider than the Fiat. All considered a successful change I think. Wheels are about 10mm closer in the back and the width has been reduced with approximately 20mm. Also made fittings for the blade, came out alright I think.

  14. Came to the reluctant conclusion that the new UH Dexta was perfect fit for a scraper tractor for the farm, so started this evening to weather it up,just need to get some solid muck to go on hopefully not over do it too much but want it to look right.

  19. Finally managed to get a fue pics of most of my collection that had been stored in a cupboard at my parents. Started to get things packed up to move to my own house where I’ve boxed in the loft to make a model room. I do have more bits and a good bit of unboxed Britain’s but I’ll get those pictures sorted when I move them into the loft. hope you like the pics

  23. I was lucky enough to get a gold one, code on the box has no 'A' on the end. Bought from jadlam, nice to see they are an honest seller with what I am seeing elsewhere with these models. My driver was loose aswell.

  32. It has been a while since my last update, but now and than some nice models find a place in my attic. Britains 9620 Fiat 90-90 DT with cultivator Britains 9598 Ford 7710 with rear digger Britains 9597 Ford 6600 with 8-wheeled trailer Britains 9644 Same 170 Turbo and Benac bale wagon. A bit of a mystery, since the box clearly shows it was intended for another set (#9635 MF 2680 Gift set). But there is some residue of glue left to be seen, so I presume a sticker has been placed over the original box to re-use for this set. Britains 9522 MF 595 Britains 9558 8-wheeled trailer in grain box. Britains 9539 Disc mower. One for the "Britains variants" topic. this one is metallic blue. Britains 9324 County 1884 Powerfarm. Britains 9597 MB Trac 1500 with hopper. And some more recent stuff, such as this Britains 43264 JCB 1 CXT. Or this Britains 43221 Vicon Fastbale. Relaunched for their 100th birthday, Britains 42902 John Deere 3050. And over to non-Britains, as this Universal Hobbies 6258 Massey Ferguson 5713S Next Generation. Limited edition 1000 pcs. A new series in a lot of colours, Universal Hobbies Valtra G135 in Olive Green. Bought directly at Valtra, cheaper than through a regular model shop. Once sold for a mere 9,99 euro a piece at a well known householdshop (Blokker) in the Netherlands, this Revell Easykit Liebherr R900 and L538. Hard to find unbuilt these days, and quite a bit more expensive!

  33. A few recent purchases, the Dexta would be fine but I think the others would be a little out of place up here in the dales!

  34. Answer? Yes it does look best with them, so I fitted a pair on each side which stick out further than the original and look more purposeful imo. Much happier with this model now with its new Bednar cultivator😎

  37. Got 2 Britains Fordsons. No luck on a gold one. I reckon the Gold ones have been sussed. Outa the 6 in the toyshop.. All the tabs were tapered with. And I nearly missed them on the shelf and had given up. They were mixed in with a bunch off Siku stuff as opposed to the Britains.. 😄 Anyways I have 2 now. Happy enough.

  40. After nearly 3 years, Oakley Farms is back with a fresh new look. Welcome back everyone, after the forced break from modelling due to buying a house it feels good to now have an opportunity to get going again. I wasn’t sure 3 years ago if I’d be able to return or not and if so in what capacity as things financially are very different now. Now with a new spare room and winter approaching I hope to start rebuilding a diorama again. The sad part is that it will be different, all of the former buildings and machinery had to go as payment for boring things like house deposit and carpets! I will keep you all updated with the progress of the new build and re start the storyline over the coming days, bringing you up to speed with what’s been going on in the last years and how Oakley is set to change for the future. Great to be back….

  44. I would have to agree, they're highly specable too. Can put them on air suspension and all sorts, the ultra wide American trailers their building and exporting are very impressive.

  45. More details going on, I'm building one as per the instruction manual and two extra, one for myself and one for the friend, both of which will contain extra detail that simply isn't economical to provide as part of the kit. Primer on all the parts. And top coat of paint. Final outcome of the instruction manual build, less decals as I'm waiting on paper. Please get in touch if you're interested in a kit. Thanks for looking, will update with the high detail models when they're finished.
