An Interested Spectator Posted January 19, 2008 Report Share Posted January 19, 2008 A while back I got a Siku MF 4270 as part of a job lot from Cheddar car boot fair. It came without a cab and an exhaust. I decided to go with the cabless theme. As i usually do, when attempting a conversion, i went to the internet for as many pictures as i could find. Just about all cabless (open platform) 4200's pictured had the american style short mudguards. I did find one small picture of one with the full round mudguards, which was a good an excuse as any for avoiding a lot of fidley cutting. Also all the american style tractors had enclosed steps, but cab ones had open steps, which again was another excuse as i only had open steps in the 'bits box'. This was never going to be a 'silk purse' because of starting with a 'sows ear', but i hope i did get something a little different out of it. Anyhow, thats all the excuses out of the way, and hopefully ther are some pictures to follow. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
