  1. You keep pushing the boundaries of good models John, well done and a great looking build of an iconic tractor πŸ™‚
  2. Sense a bit of a theme there David...... But looks good, Rickerbys decals are a nice touch πŸ‘
  3. And with a wave of his magic scalpel......... John pulls yet another suprise off his cutting mat πŸ˜‰ great work and very authentic trailer there John.... Was going to say a bit harsh on the Marshall being dragged out the hedge at this time of year haha but hey you just never know
  4. It's been a while since I had a spend on a model since Covid hit but Brian was up at the Wray tractor meet and he just happened to have a 272 Synchro with wide wheels and front weight about him so it was rude not to add it to the collection whilst I was there.....
  5. Great little collection John, and all been on your cutting mat in some way, I think any model fan that followed farm models would appreciate any of those in there own collection not at all the full cabinet..... Great to see them together... Next step is to put planning permission in for a second unit πŸ˜‰
  6. Credit where credit is due John, you done a cracking job.... I don't think I'd have complained even if the 272 is destined for the Valley, it's still a fantastic build even with the little fogging that doesn't show too much in the photos
  7. Well John ... Words fail me..... But stunning work...must be one of the finest batches of the brand ever produced in 32nd Scale and .like Martin says above the fogging doesn't look too bad in the photos, maybe it wants setting in a wet day looking scene rather than calling it a reject... hell Bathgate let worse out of the gate back in the day πŸ˜‚ The reaction of the laquer seems more of a problem though. Still fantastic work and every credit to you
  8. That they did and still do John, a lot of folk put Leylands down for the bad brakes and poor steering but that was more a lack of maintenance rather than any fault of Leyland.... The 498 and 698 engines that replaced the earlier 38td and 51/57 BMC were Leylands strong points. Torque and power and not too bad on fuel with the added bonus of a great exhaust note πŸ‘
  9. Stunning John... As always. You can almost hear the bark of the 698 up that exhaust... 😍
  10. Stunning work there John. Nothing less than we come to know of you now πŸ™‚
  11. No bother John we know it's in safe hands and Roy agreed it was a good place for it go live πŸ‘
  12. Built for the very first Lancashire and Lakeland model show held at Nether Kellet by Harold powlton, the tractor was awarded by judges opinion on the day go Roy Leetham for his display of converted and scratch built tractors and 76th scale Langley kits and Dutch barn, the show was organised by my late dad, me and Harold, was the first step to what became the Lakeland model farm and construction show now held at Penrith. Roy approached me at the last show held before covid and said he'd like the tractor go come back to its home as a tribute to my dad, but knowing that John was a large collector of Britain's Ford's, we agreed that it could have a home in a collection where it would fit in well and also I'm sure my dad would appreciate Johns collection seeing as he was a big fan of Ford and Fordson tractors himself
  13. This getting a good guide for any newbie wanting to get into collecting Britain's Ford's John.... πŸ‘
