you've got some nice stuff there - I have a soft spot for Siku kit but don't have as much now.  I have a couple of McCormicks which I have put different decals on and a few implements.  I have found their standard has slipped a little with the most recent releases.  I really looked forward to the Manitou but was underwhelmed and the Fastrac 4220 looks like one of their releases from the earlier days!  The Case Magnum they made was a real beauty too.

Of your tractors, I reckon your Xerion has enough grunt for a big cultivator like the Replicagri Kockerling 620 or the UK Horsch Tiger Cultivator/drill.  Its a great looking beast of a tractor.

I have also noticed the quality of Siku has gone down recently, so mainly try to collect their older stuff, and slowly swapping tractors to Wiking and UH as I only have a limited budget to work with.

The Siku Manitou is better in hand than the photo's make out and the step/steering controller is not that bad and works fine, and the jib has a good range of movements with enough resistance to easily stay in position. The only poor parts to look at if the safety cage/lack of paint on the cab upper glazing and the split running whole top length of the boom could have had a more positive/closer fit. Will also make it some hub detail :) 

Compared to the Britians JCB 550 the Manitou is a 100% better :) the JCB has no steering and suspension and boom fails to hold up in air unless 2-3 inches up, and not talking scale inches :( The JCB is already in the to sell box even though it is brand new and been out the box once :( 

Have to admit that Britians have some good detail but not impressed with the build or quality of materials now used compared to 30+ years ago.

I like the Xerion and have found the Wiking tractors are quite robust and easy to play/pose and even the adapter works well, and if that's not big enough to cope then I don't think the T9 will do much better :) I have seen photo's of a Xerion pulling the Amazone 6000 

Have a Wiese Xerion saddle trac on order so will see how that compares to the Wiking models, but have heard Wieses couplings can be a challenge to use in some posts?

Thank you for the Information on the weise model, I was going on what some forum posts mentioned as it will be my first weise model. Due to liking the Wiking 5000 I brought the Arion to go with it and extreamly pleased with both models, so will add a few Wiking trailers when funds allow, and maybe a Wiking Valtra T series :) don't think I own enough Valtra's yet ;)

some nice additions there Brian, I think that Lanz might be under a bit of pressure if you put her on that Joskin mind!:D

I thought that :) the Siku box has it towing a 2 axle dump trailer, but I will use a short body single axle Britain's tipping trailer on it :)

Love the Valtra , I have that one in my collection

I feel so sorry that Andy had to sell them, but they will be loved in my collection, and I have decided I will mainly collect Claas, Valtra, Challenger, Articulated and historic models, so will be culling most of my siku and britians collection off this year
