Looks great Paul, I think weathering is the next 'big thing'... everyone seems to be picking up on it and for displaying in dioramas or wider layouts I think it's essential, I'll be doing all mine as I go..... Only thing about the model is the front linkage... having done such a nice job of upgrading the model would you not have been better putting a proper UH linkage on the front and modifying your attachments to suit.... would look a million dollars with one of those on.. ;)

perhaps simon, as this is where i struggle what front linkage would you suggest and if i do fit it could i still connect the siku lemken press all tips and advice welcome isnt it an expensive hobby though ,what i want to do next is norscot challenger 765b plus i will need a doner for the tracks(britains jd 8430t) i want to fit wider ones and to go behind simba solo and double press about a £120.00 i think i need anyway look forward to your comments paul

You'd want one off a fairly big machine I would have thought Paul.... how about off a Renault Atles, you can pick those up fairly cheaply off eBay.... not sure whether they are fully working though.... someone else will have to answer that. You'd have to make up an A frame for it or modify the attachments to make them fit it though.... looking at what you've done so far I can't see that being a stretch for your abilities!  ;D

Christ Paul, that is just fantastic!! That little diorama is beautiful, some real care gone into it. I think you need to open your own dedicated collection topic because what you are doing is superb, it deserves to be showcased in one place....

It's a great place to get ideas, the beauty of FTF, but don't underestimate how many people will want to use your ideas, that straw baling scene is right up there with the best I've seen on here... it puts me in mind of a Border Fine Arts production. Top work mate, I'm appreciating it greatly!  :)

I agree whit Simon the FTF is a good place for getting idea's and in time you learn to be on youre own creatif (you already are whit the mini dio)

And you know if you want to know something or you have questions just ask.

Most off the peopel on FTF whil help you.
