Needles in a Haystack


Recommended Posts

Good day...

Mid-life crisis is hitting...can neither afford, nor fit into a sportscar, so I have developed a plan. I am collegting 1/16 scale models of equipment used on our farm in South Carolina.

So far, I have experienced pretty good luck. However, three toys are elusive:

315 Internaitional Combine

Model 66 International 4-row planter

JI Case 630

Any information on where these models may be for sale is greatly appreciated.

Take care...

Ertlerik may well be the man to ask, he has a lot of knowledge when it comes to 1/16th and the American collecting scene..... He is also a great bloke too!

Welcome aboard FTF, hope the elusive models appear in your collection soon enough. Can we see aome pics so far? :)

welcome to the forum. Being a European 1:16 collector, i can say you wont be finding those models on this side of that big puddle they call an ocean.. ;)

I only know of a few contacts in America that might be able to help you further on your hunt for those rare items.

- Jeff Flaherty of www.jsfarmtoys.com - his site is never up to date, so best mail or call him

- www.redwagonantiques.com - deals in the rare older farm toys of the 50-70's

- Kate Bossen of www.bossenimp.com - one of the bigger dealers with a lot of connections!

other options are of course ebay, but judging the rarity of the models, you would be needing to be patient before one turns up.. and maybe a better option are auctionhouses that have specialised in farm toys (girardauctions and aumannauctions are really good and have 1 or 2 auctions every month of mostly rare stuff!

hope that helps!

Sounds to me like you need to go out and find a good custom builder, specialy the combine will be a high dollar item when you can find a builder.

I made this picture at the Dyersville toyshow, that would be a good place for you to go.
