deBelhamel's collection


Recommended Posts

To start, I want to share my ERTL collection. This photo is missing a few models that I have but no longer fit in the display case. Here are 1/64, 1/43, 1/32 and 1/16 models only ERTL. Curious what you say about this.

Ford 8N 1/64.

 

When a friend of mine showed me a photo that he had duplicates I discovered that both were different and both different from the one I already had. I bought those 2 and put them next to each other.

1 has gray rims and the other 2 cream color like the color of the tractor.

In 2, the front wheels are riveted to the front axle. (after painting)

1 has a thickening was cast on the axle and the front wheels "clicked" on it

Ford TW-35 Pow-r-pull 1/64

 

I knew for years that there were 2 different versions. It also took me years to find the 2nd version. I happened to see it at a show in 2022 and bought it for a penny.

 

The biggest differences are:

The rear wheels say "ERTL" on one and "the ERTL co" on the other.

the exhausts are different as is the roof.20240325_222932.thumb.jpg.97ebb1605686f2edd8f9f5b2d66f27f2.jpg20240325_222950.thumb.jpg.7f70a48fd0770356849752d1549ac5d0.jpg20240325_222812.thumb.jpg.f4b9aaa43471e70422b536f191a87b8c.jpg20240325_223021.thumb.jpg.dde956ac797e686f4a345962f625fd07.jpg

No ERTL this time!

I'll take new pictures sometime. This photo is from last year. Another part of the collection. The collection has now grown again, but I have not yet had time to take really nice photos. I already have ideas about how I want to do that. I hope it will be as beautiful as I envision it.20240409_212523.thumb.jpg.53bf0cddc98ccbc96547ac0e60f9f150.jpg

Different front tyres and rear wheel centres by the look of it

Not every model has an equally good and sharp image. But every now and then I move everything around so everything will undoubtedly come up at some point. Next week another 3 Deutz's will be added, so things will be moved again. Photos will follow.

Anyway, this is my entire collection. Enjoy the photo's, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do every day when I look at my collection

A story behind some models. 20240602_233038.thumb.jpg.edd04d4f51bc6f067d94a3bcf43febfb.jpg This was a special edition of the LCN fair in Zwolle.(For those who don't know it. And therefore do not know the model). The first year I went there (2007) I never missed a year after that.

20240602_233144.thumb.jpg.b85a0ce0485f1b9c148040bb6e72f83d.jpgMy first 1/64 ERTL model. Found another one the year later and decided I wanted all 1/64 Fords. I'm already well on my way.
