My first conversion


Recommended Posts

Here's a few photo's of my first tractor conversion. Up till now the only converting I have done is to fit beacons and aerial on so I decided to try and convert a Britains Case IH 1056XL in to a mighty Case IH 1455XL!

So here are the photo's I know it is not prefect but see what you think.

Thanks guys for the kind comments! ;D

I used Siku JD 6920 wheels. I drilled out the molded hub flush with the rim so I could fit the original hubs. As the wheels are larger the cab had to be raised and I cut the front fenders off.

The bonnet was extended and the grill for the top made out of Plasruct. Then plainted. The extended air intake is off a MF 2680. The cab steps also had be modified to allow the wheels to fit.

I'm going to make a IH 1455XL next.

The bonnet from the 1455xl is a fair bit larger than a 956 bonnet though. Your best of waiting for Schuco's 1455 until it comes out later this year? Saves you a lot of hassle.  ;)

And where would be the fun in that?!  ;D
