looks a bit big but they are like that well done :)

well the thing is this mate

I had to make the bonnet a litle bit higher than the one from the 8280 because the cab of the 5455 has the horizental pin a litlebit higher!

I am going to try to cut something off from the chassis that the bonnet lowers a litle bit!

If I were you I would abandon it being a 7495 as its based on the larger 8000 platform and already looks wrong!!!  Why not wait a few weeks for Agritechnica show ;) firstly MF intend too launch new high horsepower tractors so perhaps your conversion could be one of these models? And secondly like a few of the other lads on this site I think we are going too see lots of impressive new 1/32 models released at the show :D perhaps a new MF ::)  lets hope so :)

              That's a bit harsh Bluegreen, not very encouraging. Johny has used the 8200 chassis . One suggestion would be to keep the 8280 floorpan and cab, just change the cab roof for the 5400 roof, but you will then need to modify the back lights, however, you will have the wider fenders.

Thank you guy's (also for the critisism)

The thing is this my friends i did a lot of work on the model and i always thougd the MF8280 from siku where to smal from siku!

If you look on the forum latest conversions Jan Jaap Bol had made the same kind of model on this chassis only his one is a 6490 or something!

What did i do last night on the model: cut something of the chassis that the bonnet is standing much lower on the chassis!

The proportions are now much better!

I take a look of posting some pics tonight because now i am working on the rear fenders that the have a the extentions on the sides!

My regards Johny MF

Just take the rear fenders out off the shed

The paint need to hard out so i don't dare to push the bonnet and the cab good on the chassis!So everything is standing lose on the chassis!

I was qurius how it looked!

Now i need to paint the black pieces of the rear fender and i removed the steering pin of the cab!

The hole in the cab roof is now filled whit plastic puty

Hope the model is now better than the most guy's expected and the proportions are much better now ???
