This is a scale model (about 14” long) of an International Farmall “M” tractor. Took me about a month to build, working random hours in the shop.

This is a great build and I know how many hours are needed to make such a beautiful model. Very well done. I’m curious how you did the brand name on the engine head.

Great job. Really nice. Brings back memories, I spent many hours on one of those when I as a young lad. I remember the smell of the exhaust blowing back in my face!

I laser engraved the lettering and symbol into the wood then filled it in with wood filler.

Very nicely made model.

I, like Paul, spent many hours, on M Farmall tractors.

That’s an amazing piece of work. The details you included in this build are fantastic. I too spend many hours in my teen on one of those tractors.

Great looking tractor. Plenty of folks around here (IA) would love to have a model like that to go with their old tractors.

Incredible how the wheels immediately grabs one’s attention K7’. Then looking at the follow up pictures one can only be awed by the fine detail.

Nice use of the laser… great to see more use of it in the workshop projects.
