ford 8830

Recommended Posts

:)hi there new member so i thought i would post some of my collection on here for all to see.






the bottom link is the best picture will work on improving for you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 ???

as you can see blue is the main colour and still the best although green and yellow has started to ingress into my blood. The red ones are probably going as they just spoil the colour scheme. I have lots more but just no room to place out.

my favourite model would have to be the britains 8830. Just because this was the big tractor when i was young that i wanted to own for real. Mr purdues fords are the best for realism and also have pride of place.

next model will be 1/16 ford 5000 from does which is on order.

why fords, because my farther ran fords while he was farming so was brought up on 6600 and 10 series tractors.

Lost the blue coat now as own jd lawncare equipment. That means i can buy more though!!!!!!!!!!!

I also drive 580tt for the holiday and chalenger 865 so have to have models of those as well :) :) :)

ohhh yes britains did make a 8830 for just under one year in 1991.

Product code 9321 in the powerfarm series.

They are quite hard to find and have one mint in box and one in display case.

You were both right about the other reason though.

could not believe my eyes when saw mt765 nearlly fell over running to get to table as well :o :o :o :o

Guy used to work for cat in europe and selling few gifts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 he had left over :D :D

such a rare model as the Doe with it's limited numbers of 500 will only increase in worth..certainly when people have been drooling over the wide available 5000 that is coming from UH. :)

I see some strange additions to your mostly Ford collection :P

Whenever i see a white box with fragile stamped on it, i have to think of a Danbury Mint model..

am i correct and if so, is it the Ford 2000, Ford 8N or the Fordson F ?
