Nooooooooooooo - don't stop now - those wheels are way too clean for the kind of weathering the rest of the beast displays - muddy those buggers!

+1

I'd also drill out the top of the exhaust pipe.
You've added all kinds of details to the engine and then have a solid pipe staring you right in your face.

Other than that it looks pretty good.

Noooooooo Elliot..... it's in the repair shed being worked on.... It would have been hosed off prior to being taken inside, you really wouldnt want the guys working on a mud caked tractor.
I'll work the hose and a muddy puddle into the yard scene. Maybe even an employee.



The exhaust will probably be replaced with a brass tube, I also spotted that after I had posted the pictures. Thanks.

WOW! Absolutely beautiful, Karl.
Now...where's the tractor I've heard so much about?

Seriously, you've set the standard here. Outstanding!
Good catch on the exhaust pipe, Rick.

I vote her the employee of the Month Karl!
Nice work on that tractor too!
And the 1/16 brass tubing looks way better,I guess you could say that piece of work was exhausting.

Thanks indeed Greg,
yep the tubing worked out well in the end.

Re-attached the exhaust, now I can call it 'finished'.....











..... at least until I get it onto the diorama and work it into place.

Outstanding build. But put me in the "add mud and gunk to the wheels" group.

Add me to the " add dust and oil to the wheels , but not mud" group . The ground is way to dry for mud .

Great job. I'll go with Nick on that one some dust and oil to the wheels will make it perfect.

Caught up to you again, Karl. Great job on the tractor as well as it's surroundings. I wish
someone made a tractor kit like that in 1/24 scale. Guess I'll have to find drawings and make on.

This forum is so big it's hard to follow what everyone is doing. Maybe I should spend less
time modeling and more time on the computer.

Here's a link to someone who had the same problem.

Thanks for the positive comments, they are really appreciated.

Bob, I posed the tractor on Bretts incredible pilot diorama for the last set of pics so I cant take credit for the surroundings, I'm hoping mine will come
out close to that good.
