New Holland TM-140 on flotation tyres. Conversion.


Recommended Posts

Another conversion ive been working on. Done this NH TM-140 using a Britains NH 8560. Just smartened it up a bit with a few extras,paint work & decals. The standard Britains model was very plain & i was always thinking of modernising it to a TM with more detail.

Get a resin cab off PDC lad,as shes wrong for a TM  ;)

Thats the plan alright. Cause ive a Replicagri 8560 thats going to get the TM-155 treatment sometime,so ill order for both in the one whip. Cheers John. ;)I was also thinking an ERTL  NH 8670 roof maybe might do the job.

I have driven a few NHs in my time from 7740s up to the last of the TMs. But i never really took notice of the changes in the roofs of NHs. I always tought they looked the same until my brother actully pointed out to me while i was doing this conversion ,that i sould change the roof. So he (my brother) has 2 playworn ERTL tractors ,a G240 & 8670 in the attic. So maybe i cold swipe a roof from one of those.

I changed the cab on the TM. And gave her better looking beacons. But ive seen loads of this decaled TM with the older style roof & lots of convo builds also with the old Britains roof. So whos right guys. Maybe the roof changed in the middle of this models production run. Anyway she looks a little better. Roof used came from one of my old ERTL NH 8670s.
