1/16 Fordson E27N Rowcrop


Recommended Posts

Here's my latest conversion, it started life as a UH E27N and I've just got around to finishing.

The inspiration for the project was the pictures below of the tractor in "rowcrop" specification. This required the removal of all the hydraulic components, PTO, electrics and the fabrication of a new axle and rear hubs. The standard rear wheels had to have the dishes cut away and turned around with new lugs added as these were destroyed so the dish could remain intact.

It was found during the rebuild that the colours UH use are not "original" so the whole model had to be stripped and repainted with the proper colours. The rear tyres were swapped for those off a DOE and a radiator blind was built into the grille to add an extra touch.

Sadly I didn't take many pictures during the process but the following is the chassis drying on the first thing I found to hang it on, an E27N starting handle!

Ditto that... stunning work... well done and thanks for sharing..

Had you noticed the standard model with the tyre on back to front... good old UH quality control at a guess ???

Hi Marky, believe it or not that model was fresh out of the box!! I had not realised that during the "photoshoot" mind you I was dodging the showers.  :)

Thank you for all your kind words and watch this space as there are a couple more 1/16 models coming.

Cheers Lee
