JOHN DEERE 7430 on row crops


Recommended Posts

I made a few changes too the tractor as well which included removing the nob patching &filling hole with miliput and then painting area with JD paint which annoyingly is different shade to siku JD paint >:( 

I decided to fit a phone antenna just to the side of this area to draw my attention away from paint mismatch!

The wheels look right on this model now (which is more than I can say for oversized originals :o)  but I do have a big gripe about them >:(  I had to drill them out!  And no matter how careful i was (and im a carpenter) I couldnt get them drilled accurately, so now they "wobble badly" when moving >:(

Now PDC in his defence suggested they be drilled on one of those highly accurate press drills!  Well who has one of them too hand :-\  May I politely reccommend that in future they are all pre drilled accurately for customers convienience  before sale;)

You may also be wondering wheres the front chassis piece that covers over the front axle??   Well I dont like it & found it is easy to hacksaw off behind the axle and yet not lose any screw fixings ;)  this I think you will all agree leaves a more realistic  uncluttered appearance beneath front weight :D  You will also see that ive screwed on the front weight (nicely made by PDC) and therefore It can easily be removed for flexibility :)

I was quite confident that a 7430 would make its way to Agritechnica show (who wasnt!)  but I wasnt expecting it to have new 4 post cab & stainless steel exhaust:D  that was a bonus :)  I was however dissapointed that the new UH Amazone sprayer hasnt appeared yet as I was keen too match it up with 7430 & replace the less detailed Hardi :-\

Oh well I will have to be patient I guess.

Hope you like the pics 8)

Oh I forgot a few other details,  I painted the wheels with lemon yellow enamel paint, had to fill the front ones with milliput first.  3 coats & then painted whell nuts silver ;)  Also when rear wheels are off I paint underside of mudguards  & area hidden by wheels matt black ;)  and finally on cab painted lights silver & background mattblack , same as real thing :)
