Claas Dominator 85


Recommended Posts

Just called round at friends - while there, flicked through his copy of Tractor & Machinery mag - checked out the model pages - brilliant looking 1:24 scale Dominator 85, scratch built. Can't remember the guys name, but i think Andy did the article. Also a smaller picture of a 1:24 County 1454, again looks fantastic.

Would be nice to see more pictures/info on these to excellent looking models.

you are right Sean, near the end the builder came to show them.. They were fantastic models in an unusual scale. Believe he used to make lorry/truck scratchbuilds and that is where the 1:24 scale came from. As there is hardly anything in 1:24, he had to make almost everything himself.. including the tires..

they were absolute masterpieces!

They are great models and were hand-made by Austin James. A feature on them appears in the latest July issue of Classic Tractor for anyone who is interested to know more about this skilled model maker.
