2640 2wd mjb1 it's finished !

Recommended Posts

saw TM's 2640 & thought i'd better finnish mine off as well .

front axle is from a economy ford 6600 wheels from one of those little blue cargo trailers & the decals done with the 'paints' programme i'll keep the landini grill on it though just to remind me not to break up things i shouldn't? :-\

next thing to attempt is to put glass in the cab using laminatsd plastic sheeting ,but when that will be lord only knows .

i think these front wheels look OK as the real tractors always looked a bit ungainly with the 2wd option.

don't know yet as am really tempted to go we'll have to see how the cash flow is going ,or stopped as the case may be . i'll give you a shout to be sure when i know nearer the time . :)

SPOT ON Marcus - you've got the front wheels just right mate on that one - anoother one to send me in the post for my 200 to sit behind :D

i think TM is trying too hard with the wheels as they never really suited 2wd in my eyes ,too gangly, :-\& as for it being hitched up to the 200, then you'll just have to send it back for a photo session or you'll have to super impose it using photoshop  :D :D :D but it would look better than that siku thingy ;)

.. . . . .. . and when were you thinking of commencing mass-production?

Great work, proper 80's arable set up there now. I just bagged a semi-modded 2680 on ebay, sure you all saw it. It's the only one I will have for a while I expect do may do a few subtle changes to it. MJB, farmmodels.co.uk do a toolbox, metal. Would look good underneath the nearside quarter window on one or two of yours!! Think they are a quid. Now that has to be a good reason to go to Shepton!!!

If that really was mjb's mummy shown as a new member late last night, we'd better behave ourselves !!

yes it was & yes we'd better  :D :D :D :D

thanks to all for the nice comments & a big thanks to TM who got me started by getting the 2720 decals & for starting his 2wd 2640 else mine would still be in the box in the attic, looking very sorry for it's self as it was in a dire need of modifying . ;)
