This was my third project from T & J. And again it took more time than I thought. A lot of little stuff, but fun to do.

Nice job. When I was a kid we had a G, neighbors had an A and a B. You rear tires are really good they look like they have seen some use. I grew up in north Idaho and tractors were use by everybody to skid logs so rear tires didn’t look new for very long. They looked just like yours do.

The tractors turned out great-your photography adds to the charm. How did you ebonize the tires?

Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding! Great job with cool details. How do you cut the cleats on the tire tread? Is there a book or other source for detailing the construction process? Thanks for posting.

P.S. You’re way ahead of me because I speak no Dutch and my German classes were 45-years ago, so I think your English is great.

This is better than the metal collector ones. Nicely done.

Thank you guys.

Bruce before I started I never had seen a John Deere. My dads first tractor in 1948 was for so far I know a Mc Cormick. (Marschall plan). Just after the second WW John Deere wasn,t a common brand.

Bill the wheels are from europeen oak. I ebonized with vinegar.

HillbillyShooter The plans are bought by T and J.

Great work Dutchy. That is the same model I am building and will post hopefully next week. It took me much longer than it should have also but it was a fun build. Love the black tires. Thanks for sharing.

Great job on the tractor. I’ve had a set of T&J plans for something, for so long I have forgotten what they are. Maybe I should dig them out and get started.

I know something about these tractors. I’m impressed with the accuracy of this model. This looks like it would be a model between ‘48 – ‘52. I could narrow that down further if I could see other views. Regardless, this is very well done. Congratulations!
