Massey Ferguson 7499


Recommended Posts

Next I added its wheels, all of which were over sprayed with MF sapphire grey paint................I also shortened the bar axle a little and painted dark grey as per the real thing.........................I kept the same rear tyres but exchanged the front ones with slightly wider Wiking versions.

Then I added a two way radio aerial, the front bonnet a MF front weight and aged the exhaust pipe a little.

A tyre dusting completes the look:)

Thanks for the comments Pat,  I got the aerials from farm models Netherlands.

My next convo is a revisit to the tier 3 (grey chassis 2009) MF6480 which I now have to say is MFs best ever looking tractor imo.................Its funny how a tractor range has too fade into the history books before you can truly appreciate how smart it really looked.........the new 76/7700s are nice but just too much "bling" on them when compared to the classic lines of the late 64/7400s.

Pretty tasty work that Massey , as for the CB aerials may be a bit easier for you now as Mandy sells them along with some of their other stuff

smart tractor with all those mods done,only thing I can fault UH is that the exhaust is a bit small on the 7499 so I might get a bigger one fitted on mine.

Your 6480 is looking good too,one of mf's best modern tractors great fuel economy and pulling power for a mid range machine.
