As promised my first thread with some of my collection. I tried a picture test and as all said, its pretty easy (famous last words!)

As I said before, I'm working through cataloguing everything, so I'll use this as an opportunity to hopefully show some of the models that may be lesser seen and give some background where appropriate.

First up is the Arbos 5130 tractor. As far as I know, Arbos is an old Italian brand that ceased in the 1980's(?). Recently picked up by the Chinese company Lovol, to act as a new push into Ag machinery. They set up a design centre in Italy, conveniently near to CNH, Landini and others to design the tractors, with initial production in China. Now they have bought Goldoni, I believe that manufacturing is also now taking place in Italy.

When they launched at one of the shows a few years ago (I can't remember which) there were scale models shown on the stand, but none seemed to be available to buy. I did see some on the various auction sites, but all silly money and from overseas. Last year I managed a day at Agritecnica and, between some meetings, disappeared off to find their stand. Lo and behold, a fan shop with this the only model.

Scale is 1/24th. It comes in a massive, high quality presentation box (bit of a problem trying to fit into a carry on bag!). I was surprised, the model is mainly metal with lots of detail, opening bonnet and doors. Not bad for 44euros.

Enough talk....pictures:

I like that in black!

They are certainly very stylish, just not sure practical the nice white / cream interior is going to be off a show stand.

I meant to say, I've no idea of who makes the models.... there is no manufacturer name I can see anywhere ?

I got one at Zwolle in 2015 so you may have got yours at Agritechnica. There were still one or two at Zwolle in 2017 but they were about half the price that I paid for mine

yes you are probably right , I also noticed at Zwolle that they was about half the price that I paid , I think Goody sold the one he had on his table

Agitechnica 2015 would fit with my memory. My feeling is there weren't that many available at that time. I wasn't at Zwolle, but I was trying to pick one up from the internet, again I could only see one or two available and they seemed to disappear quickly at high prices. Anyway, two years later I got one!

Picked this one up some years ago. Made by HiTech Gallery in India for Mahindra USA. Mahindra 5005 DI, 1/25th scale. All plastic and very light. I've seen a few around, all had the wheel melt to some degree or other, mine has damage to both front wheels. Will sit well with the Indian Milton Maxwell Escort tractor I picked up at the last M+M auction.

Latest update...…...

Stotz Agro-Service liveried models, picked up over the years.

Back row:

Weise MB Trac 1000 with dual wheels ( Traktorado Show 2015)

Weise Unimog 406

Middle row:

Siku JCB Fastrac 155-60 with Siku Veenhuis tanker

Front row:

I believe there are a few others available in Stotz colours. There is a Siku Claas Axion 950 on their website and I think there was another version of the Weise MB Trac. Does anyone know if any other models were produced?

Hi Joe, the SIKU MB Trac is a new one on me. I know there’s multiple Weise versions, as shown on farmmodeldatabase, but the SIKU version isn’t shown. What makes you think it should be on duals?

I guess I should try contacting Stotz direct and seeing if they can provide a definitive list! 

This is the problem, once I get started on a particular series of models, I like to find them all!!!

Thanks guys.

Joe, the link you posted to T-toys shows a SIKU version MBTrac , that I have never seen. It’s not on the farmmodeldatabase. The ones on there are Weise versions.

Barry, yes I knew there were other Weise versions. I have the one, but for the price , I can’t justify the others for the minor differences.

Another infrequent update! 

Another DBP, this time a County 954 with a DBP Parmiter 6 gang zig zag harrow attached. I don't know how far Dave ever got with the harrows, he showed me the raw parts one time when I met him. I asked him to put this together for me. Probably one of my favorite models in my collection.

Funnily enough, while searching online to find out more about the Parmiter, I came across a copy of the operating instructions on ebay, so just picked those up for a couple of quid too :)

Your DBP's are stunning and the parmiter harrows are brilliant, just like the real thing. I have a set of real ones and they are the most awkward thing to fold and un fold, all those pivot points means there are plenty of places for trapping fingers.

Some David Brown's this time...……

Left to right are:

990 Scaledown kit. Not made by me, I bought at an M&M auction.

1412 with Hydracut flail mower (also has an interchangeable saw). I just got this from Ian (Tab) and it's just amazing, again one of my favorite models.

1412 Silver Jubilee. Made by Henny Baas of Holland. This is number 37/50.

Second photo is another 1412. This one the NZG 1/25th scale version. I picked this up in America from years ago, from a collector friend who had an unopened trade box of these... wish I'd bought some more!

I have one of the Silver Jubilee DB's as well, mine is 3/50 and I bought it at Spalding about 2 years ago. I was surprised that it was so cheap at the time because it is a nice conversion and I know that there was a real tractor and its not just made up.

I picked mine up at Spalding too. As you say it's a nice, clean conversion in a nice presentation box for the money. If I remember, a second version was also offered by Henny in industrial yellow, again, I think, in a run of 50. I did consider that one too at the time but in the end gave it a miss.
