  1. According to Brushwood site, early September. The 100yrs Fordson now due late August early September as well. There is also a 70th anniversary red Valtra T due And according to Brushwood, in September is a JCB Loadall Agri Extra (ref 43325) as well as the Union Jack Loadall due October. I am intrigued by the Agri Extra - especially as there is already a Loadall in the range. Maybe a variation on the current model with ag tread tyres?
  2. sorry I didn't want to start a new topic on the same subject... Would the Superfaun fit onto a Weise tractor? And are they difficult to come by these days? Not after mint boxed one, but a complete loose one would be fine, for a little idea Ive got. I wish Britains had re-released some of their classic models for the anniversary (from 70s/80s era I mean)
  3. Looks much better with the mods Phil, I bought a couple cheap with view to trying to improve them, but not sure I can be bothered now
  4. Reply from Weise - the 926 gen 1 will be available again, pandemic has disrupted supply. Happy days.
  5. Hopefully so Sean, I think the 824 always goes for a good price nowadays just to name one. I expect some of the MB trac models would do well if re-released as well.
  6. Further to above, I have contacted Weise to see if the 926 gen 1 is likely to be available again, as its not listed as discontinued on their site - would be just as happy with one of those as the 824 as they look the same and I have examples from the following 3 generations of 900s so would complete the set.
  7. Very nice Phil, those later 716s are very nice, the Generation 1, perhaps not so much. Those tyres suit the 820 very nicely - I like how it looks as though its rearing up slightly. I' ve got a UH 818 stashed away, it would look better with those tyres - whether or not that happens is anyones guess, I shan't make the same error as with the 824 though and flog it!
  8. I do bitterly regret selling the Weise 824, if anyone knows of one coming up for sale do let me know. I know there is a limited edition coming up soon from Toys Farm but I'd want to display the model and not sure it would be right to do so with a rare one.
  9. Have put the Kuhn fertiliser spinner on the Fendt 816, I think it sits a little too far off but I can live with it. It was awkward to attach though, I had to put the hitch onto the linkage and then reattach the spreader afterwards. There wasn't the same hassle with the Valtra T191 it just went on and off. (Hoping the pictures attach)
  10. A great read as always Phil. Did you decide not to include the 926 in the layout in the end?
  11. Paul, have you sold off your fleet? Saw a lot of similar machines for sale on Ebay from a Devon seller?
  12. I think even in 'normal' times Britain's always get their releases out just at the wrong time, combines always seem to come out in the autumn!
  13. And a Shropshire number plate too I see!
  14. I think the gen 2 had a smaller weight, and the gen 3 had a bigger one like the 818/20. That one looks spot on. The 820's don't come up very often but I hope you find one. I had a white one, didn't keep it though. 818 reasonably close, I managed to get one of those recently. As UH are re-releasing older stuff at present, would make more than few people happy if they did another run of 820's It seems people don't want to let the model versions go in the same way as the real ones.
  15. Good read Phil, is that the Gen 3 716 with a smaller weight?
  16. One of your finest Phil! Looks so much better on the UH wheels. Hopefully the T will revert back to UH and they will do the 5, I was worrying Wiking had discontinued it to update, but they haven't updated stuff like the Claas Arion so hopefully will be UH.
  17. For some reason, very few Valtra models with a front linkage come with weights (possibly the Ros N174?). Anyway, as the Weise Fendt 514s linkage couldnt hold up a cat hair, I've tried it on this T214 and it fits a treat.
  18. Dug this out and thought I'd try and improve it. Have started on the hubs but it's been a long time since I did any painting and my hands aren't as steady as they used to be, so will have another try tomorrow. Already looks a bit better. Will get the front linkage off it too soon! The steering beacon will have to go as well, apart from those issues I always thought it was a decent likeness.
  19. Oh I thought they were old shop stock!
  20. Going to use this little DB as a yard tractor, so probably will use with the sweeper pictured and probably a link box. Would it need some front weight added do you think?
  21. Ok, intrigued to see how much better it looks painted.
  22. Have you put it all back together/finished it now Phil?
  23. They steer but not hugely. They wobble badly too, at least on the one I have. It's the older blue one by the way, the yellow one might be better?
