  1. Rear linkage more or less finished and front axle built, the rear wheels are just temporary until i dig out another pair like the fronts

  2. Commissioned County FC1174 reg - BBC 839T. Couldn't find a suitable 14 x 30 size tyre for this build and ended up using the front wheels of the Britains Renault Cergos. Photo credits to Anderson Agri Photography.

  4. I thought I'd gather together some of my builds for a few group photos the other day (just an excuse to look at them again really!) I've often wondered where time goes, but when I pulled this little lot together it left me wondering where i found the time, and that's without all the unfinished builds still sat on my bench! Still, it was nice to see them out again for a little while at least!

  5. Not a scratch build this time, but a conversion of a UH 7810. This is based on a tractor that I've spent quite a bit of time on and do have a soft spot for (even though it's not red or green!) The base tractor was a play worn model that i picked up cheap from eBay a couple of years back. The awful UH hitch has been removed and a new one built to match the real one as it has an extra assistor ram fitted and also larger category 3 arms from a New Holland T7. The front weights have been made removable, and it has been fitted with brackets to take a KAT loader. Anyway, progress so far

  7. Sort of a natural progression from my 74 inters, I've now started on the subsequent 84 and 85 series. First up is a start on a 784, making full use of the Sekura cabs that I've started building

  11. Just waiting on the decals now, a little bit of touching up here and there, but she's about done, pipework added to steering rams, mirrors, and a bit more engine detailing to finish her off

  14. Some progress on the big one, many thanks to John (JEP) for help with photos of the back end. The 171 is different to the smaller Muir Hills in that its linkage is mounted on a sub frame separate from the skid unit. There were a few grey areas, but we got there in the end

  18. I have to admit it's not quite finished, I need to fit a windscreen wiper, the ram for reel height isn't finished and the more I look at it the less I like the rear wheels but couldn't resist a photo or two while I had 10 mins spare this morning. Anyway, here is the new combine being delivered.

  20. Almost done, just waiting on the decals. A little bit of tidying here and there, might rub the mudguards down and paint them again as I'm not totally happy with the finish on them, but she's about ready to roll!

  21. Well, after a couple of weeks of problems with my phone not letting me post or reply to anything on here, it finally seems to be almost behaving itself - maybe it falling into a bucket of water in the lambing pens has actually helped it! Anyway, during quiet spells on the night shifts waiting for someone or other to get on lambing so that i could get back to bed, i used the time to get a bit of progress on my builds. The front axle has had the steering rams added and axle stops, lights fitted, steps to diesel tank and filler, number plate bracket and spool valves built, radiator made ready to add after painting, cab headlining done, and air pre filter bowl made ( who knew the pipe off a sheep worming gun was ideal for the glass in the bowl!) Now starting on the undercoat.

  27. I‘ve startet collecting Britains farm models in 1978 in Southwest Germany. Since that time about 250 tractors, combines and implements and a fairly large amount of accessories have come to my collection. After bering member of this forum for quite a long time i‘d like to share some of my fav models from the „good old days of farming“. Gernod

  28. Finally a bit of colour! The wheels will be replaced with some like on the front of the 475 when i come across some, but these will do for now. Just some decals to order and a couple of chains to add to the back door and a bit tidy up of the paint when it hardens, but she's almost done!

  32. I made the mistake of recently finding the plans that I drew for this several months ago, and unfortunately I couldn't help myself! Anyway, as usual a start on the engine/gearbox

  33. one or two bits and pieces to add such as hooks and shackles etc, but she's about done. My intention is to create a small diorama with her sat on, so I think some heavy weathering will no doubt be necessary as she's too shiny for forestry work!

  34. With the new financial year underway the farm has been treated to a new tractor.. A brand new Pre Force 5000 with loader, the ferguson will be retained and used as a backup loader around the farm. Just to get some attachments for it now and put it to work!

  37. Some first (and rather crude) attempts at weathering on a selection of home-made bale trailers - all made using the old Britains 8 wheel trailer as a donor unit. Next step will be to mix in some green pigments to get that look of having been sat out in the open for a while - and to create a finished yard setting for them. Adam.

  38. A bit of progress on the back end of the 4230, and also on the 484 and 684

  39. Made a start on a gen2 AP cab, with the slightly different mudguards and rear-opening doors. The roof isn't off this cab, but it nearly fits, you get the idea anyway! This ones another 46, but I'm working on a 4 pot skid, so no doubt there'll be a 56 or 66 fitted with this cab at some point

  42. Hi, just thought I would post some of my little scratchbuilds. I am new to the forum and this is my first post so, here goes... Most of the implements are made from butter packaging (apart from the compressor at the back) and I use the wheels off smaller models. The cement mixer is made from a matchbox cement lorry and some wire. The small mountfield rotovator is all made from bits and bobs I found lying around and weathered with pigments and Vallejo "oil stains" (which actually smells remarkably like agri grease). I found the engines to be the hardest part on most of them as I have to find bits of metal around the right size to look like a Briggs & Stratton. The strimmers are made from garden wire and 1/35 transmitions from airfix kits are used for the engines. Thanks for looking , cheers
