Hello fellow LJ’s. just wanted to share my most recent completed project. I started working at Krone in May last year and as soon I saw the harvestor I knew I had to build it. I took lots of pictures of a Big X 530 we had onhand and went from there. This all of my own design….well except for the rear wheel stearing, is used some of the design from Dutchy’s forklift. I would estimate that I have 100 hours in this piece with research and try, then try again with scale and what not. The materials used are Ash and Walnut. As always all comments are welcome. Thank you in advance for looking / commenting.

Awesome. The two details I just totally love are the handrails, and the holes in the tire rims.

Thank you, its hard ot tell but those are actualy not holes, they are lugs made from toothpicks, each rim has a valve stem.

Super nice job and love the wood chooses.
Scratch build makes it that much more special.
Once you do a scratch build it really helps you appropriate the work put in by those that make the plans we use.

Came in late and can only echo what has already been said.

Contrast looks great, design is great and the build is exceptional.

You and that Dutchman should collude with some plans for the rest of us plebs (just speaking for myself fellas)..

Great build. My brother has a tractor and large bailer from Krone. Are you making a header for it?

To make models from a set of pictures takes real talent. That is an exceptional model. Well done.

Very nice work. I like the wood contrasts and the vents carved into the side are really a nice extra touch.
