There is also a video and plans for this tractor.

A time ago I have made two same tractors as this one, but after made a building pattern, with help from Ducky for the SU 3D drawings, I would check it on mistakes, and that’s why I build this third one.

The wood I used is Ash, Cherry, Oak, Wenge, Imbuia and Beech. The model is about 30 cm (12”) long

If you are interested to build your own look here

I have made a blog of the building with a lot of picutes.

Below some more detail pictures, but first one of the real tractor.

Thanks for watching and all comments much appreciated.

Totally Awesome! Excellent detail. Brings back memories even though we were a Massey Harris Family. I can just imagine a plow, disk or cycle-mower on that 3 point hitch. THANKS for sharing.

That is a work of art Dutchy. After 35 blogs, one gets tired of echoing “WOW… fantastic”, however, unquestionably it is justified.

So here we go again…

WOW… fantastic!
