Ford 5000 / tabmodels


Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to squeeze some detail out of the Britains Ford 5000 but was never happy with the later issue cabs. I think they got the skid units / bonnets perfect, but the cab just wasn't right. As with the older Britains 5000, the cabs were perfect but the skid units / bonnets didn't hit the mark for me. So I decided to fit the old cab to the newer skid units and got a slightly more accurate 5000. I'm planning on posting all of my Ford 5000 variations here over time as it's quite a popular tractor to convert.

Wow. What a transformation Ian, looking at your model you'd never think it was based on the original britains. Stunning work again. Are these your own casting or a conversion on the britains chassis?

Thanks Martin, The chassis and bonnet are cast from the newer 5000 which I reckon is dimensionally correct, the cab is cast from the old 5000. I also used the old 5000 mudguards and cast them adding the square tail lights. Hope to do the same thing with the 7000 and other variations.

Yes really good Ian funny to think no one has actually made these series of tractors as a detailed model yet. 

Yes Alastair, I was surprised myself that no one has mated the old cab to the new skid unit, or maybe I just haven't seen one yet!
