Heller 1:24 Ferguson Le Petit Gris
Tony P you may have some interest in this. Your great tractor pics introduced me to them in scale.
Apart from a farming accessory for the rear of the tractor this is now finished. I have another coming and there appear to be 2-3 other 1/24s that I’ll get over time. One big problem with this kit, which John B alluded to, was a protruding piece of plastic from the top of the grill which served no purpose other than to make assembly life difficult!
They really are a great addition to a scale model vehicle/car collection, especially for me with the bulk of my collection in 1/24.
Here’s the 1:1 I based mine on. It was recently for sale in Queensland.
And here are some pics of it at the near completed stage showing all the engine area, along with a pic alongside a WCPD El Camino to show how small it actually is.
And finally completed amongst a group of 1/24 Eucalyptus.
GREAT build! It has some terrific detailing!!
splendid work Geoff !!...............and thanks for all the great pics and comps
thank you gentlemen!
Excellent work Geoff, looks great....
Nice looking results. Those protruding bits, sometimes metal, seem to happen in too many kits. Your results look great! Thanks for posting the process.
(later) Not a kit, but here's an older Arcade in cast iron with some implements. Not scaled but a little larger than 1/43.
hey thanks David! Really appreciate your support. Tractors have really got me in. I am actually looking at some 1/43s, but am concentrating on 1/43 buses and cars I'll never see in 1/24.
