Ford 6600 with Fritzmeire Cab


Recommended Posts

This is a model of our own 6600,I decided just to modify the original cab instead of buying another one,I know its inacurate but It will do me.

The real Machine

Just thinking for a fritzmer cab, would you be better off trying to find an old Britains Deutz DX92 or 110 on ebay with a good cab & using its cab as your Fritzmer. Its the nearest thing in 1/32 scale to a fritzmer in my opinon. Im only saying this cause im thinking of doing a fritzmer cabbed Ford 4600. Using a shortened Britains 7600 casting,UH Ford 5000 Pre Force rear wheels & that Deutz cab. Im an Irish man myself and my old lad had a Fritz cabbed 4600 years ago. Childhood memorys. ;):)

Can't wait to see that.

Would suggest using Britains 9527 Ford 5000 wheels rather than the UH wheels, as the UH is a representation of the 38" wheels, and the Britains the 36".

The Fritzmieir was a lovely cab, although the bar a cross the back nearly killed a lot of people who were trying to attach implements to the 3 point and reached underneath it to adjust the quadrant.

Yeah maybe so. But the wheel centres on the Pre Force are the type youd see on 4000s,4600s etc. The wheels on the Britains 5000 are too wide & are more suited to the 5000,7000,6600 & 7600.

The new Britains 5000 (42196) has a representation of the 14x34 wheels, but the old Britains 5000 had the 36" wheels like the 4000. The 38s on the UH 5000 would be too big for a 4000.

They used 38s im sure on a lot of Beligan built 4600s cause unlike the Basilton UK built 4600s & 4000s which had 6 stud rare hubs ,the Beligan built 4600s with the Fritz cab had 8 stud hubs just like the bigger 5600s & 6600s which took the bigger 38s. Most 4600s sold in Ireland new had Fritzmer cabs which were more common here than the Ford Q cab on UK models. There was no noise regulations in Ireland back then in the late 70s & early 80s. So Fritz cab Beligan built Fords were very common here unlike the UK which had all Q cabs. If you think about it the County 4600 & 4000 FOURs also had big 38s.  :)
