John Deere 3140


Recommended Posts

Finished this a little while ago but only just got round to taking pictures. of it.

Base model was the recent Ertl JD 3140.

Wheels and front axle came from a UH Deutz 

Features are...

Fully glazed cab

Mirrors and lights

PTO shaft and guard

Drive shaft to front wheels.

Mudguards cut short and bent to match real tractor.

Think it has turned out ok, let me know what you all think :)

Looks good to me.Ive also got a cab to glaze is it easy

very nice mate, looks so much better for glazing the cab to, was that easy enough to do

The cab is fairly simple to glaze just fiddly!

I made some paper templates of the window shapes first

The gluing was time consuming and annoying, several pieces had to be redone.

It is amazing what a cotton bud and surgical spirit can do to clean up the plastic.

There has been a few of these conversions over the last few months but this still doesn't bore me of seeing any more. Especially when they are as good as yours Richo, the glaze cab, wheel choice, mudguards, worklights. .... nothing too radical, just all as it would be found on a real one. A fine job you have made of converting a lackingly detailed model. Well done. :)
