thanx for the reacitoins guy's

yesterday i begon whit the rear fenders of the MF4135 valtrac but i was not happy by the way it looked!

So starting over again whit the rear fenders!

When i begon drawing the workdrawings i begon to wonder if this model realy going to be made by me ???

So i started whit the chasis and then i thought this is never go?ng  to work but i continued made a cab and a bonnet.

Looked at the model on the chassis and i thougd by my self this is what i want!

But no i am working on the rear fender and i thougd by my self no this is not gonna work!

Now i gonna leaf the model like it is and wait fore a couple of days to continue than my heads cleared and got more courage to finish it!

Now is my qeustion: Have you guy's some time like me now, that if it's not working,and take a couple of day's distance of the project,

and you begin after a few days again that it is working the first time!

I hope i get some tips because i am stuck on the moment!! :-\ :-\

Thanx and greatings Johny MF

I take years :D

I did the same thing almost...made the chassis, fitted a britains MF 3680 bonnet, Ros 3070 cab and tried to modify Britains MF3680 rear mud guards for the rear..my downfall was I based it on a two MB trac chassis front ends (4 wheel steer) but of course that type of steering required too much clearance..one day I'll go back and either lock the rear axle or fit some TSA or TN axles :) I think I could make it now, but I never get round to these things.

The thing is i still have to make the axels my self!

Every thing what you see on the photo's exept the wheels is made by my self!

Now parts used from any tractor! The bonet and the cab are made from 3mm plastic plate frome evergreen!

The bonet is made in shape whit a balsa wood blok that i scraped in the right curves!

Everything is scratchbuild

So i think i must/got the skills to make the rear fenders right!

And this is the first project i completly making all the parts my self!

So my head is cracking over here how to go on! I am realy stuck at the moment! :-[:-X (need help! Tips!)
