Massey Harris Binder

Horse Drawn Binder

 Ever since I saw Techno Bygg binder kit I knew I wanted one but soon realised this kit was no longer available and the only way was to try and build one myself, well a representation of one.

I’m not one of those persons who can draw things out before building, it’s more a case of making it up as I went along.  I had a few basic measurements and photographs of one in action at Greyabbey last August.



The model is basically of plasticard construction with some brass.  I was very lucky it getting some parts from Cenfyn Davies which made a big difference.

So here is the process.





I used parts of a latex glove for the canvas conveyor belts. 



 I’ve painted parts of the model Massey red and it's waiting a second coat.

Thanks for the kind comments. the model is finished accept to tone down the paintwork and attach chains for the horses.



Keeping up to date with the changing times a drawbar is available so that one of those newfangled tractors can be used to pull the binder.
