Well I’m done with the tractor. I also built the lowboy to go with it. I turned the tyres, gas tanks, air tanks and the air filter canister on the lathe. I even made my own axle pegs too. The project was made out of walnut, oak and the tyres were made out of maple.

Super nice job!!!
Really like the air cooled muffler covers.[Can’t think what you call them?]
I know what a pain they can be to set up.
Show us the bottom and I can’t wait to so the Low Boy I really love the looks of them.

Great job J’1974... those heat shields add that extra level of WOW detail…
The “half shields”... interested in the reasoning behind that… were you too lazy to make 2? Are they that thin or is the thickness hidden by a “stained kerf” on the top?
How many vent holes per perimeter (looks like 6)... I am contemplating making a drilling jig for the shields. You threatened a blog on the shields... has Captain America gone AWOL?

Did you stain the kerfs in the tanks and filter or wire burn… looks good.

That my friend is wire burn. I think it makes the detail really pop!

Really good job! I appreciate a well done vehicular model. I also applaud your hand turned items. Well done. I’m with you all the way on that. I don’t want to buy my round stuff. I wanna turn it myself!

A daily TOP 3 a few hours after posting. What can I say? I like it, the colers and also the detail. The heatshields turned out well, the question is how.
