A teaser pic for Mr Tony P!

Not sure how long this will take to finish, the kit is fantastic. Lots of intricate detail here. You've got me hooked on tractors now Tony!

Tony....I have to ask; are you a farmer or did you grow up on a farm, like me?

@john-barry uhoh! no I'm not John. I've already had an issue with the front axles not fitting as per the instructions. Any advise would be appreciated. Sorry, not meaning to hog Tonys great pictorial post.

No Jack, grew up around races horses. We owned a Bar & Tavern inside the Hialeah Race Track in South Florida for many years. Just love tractors. I have owned John Deere lawn & garden tractors now for about 25 years. Current one is a 2022 X730:

@perrone1  That's interesting (and cool) that you like them so much then.  My interest is based on my experience with them as a kid through to my 20s.  Most of my friends parents had farms as did most neighbors so I was exposed to all sorts of them, which I loved watching and working with.  The Case tractor you posted was orange as per the vintage Case colors.  I'm not sure exactly when Case switched to the cream primary and orange secondary color scheme but it was at least in the 1950s as my friend's dad had a late 50s Case.  As I mentioned, my tractor collection is 1:43 and unfortunately the Case marque has been the one least represented in the 1950s era in that scale.  I hope that changes soon.

For what it's worth; Case isn't well represented in 1/16th scale either. Got my eye on a big boy Case, 2014 - current, tractor:

I searched extensively and could not find a single TRACE of the illustrated article Geoff....since so many articles and videos cover head-to-toe builds without issue,I think it`s safe to assume that what I had seen previously was an isolated indecent........one in which the cover would not sit properly without hogging out a radiator cap sized depression in the underside of the cover to allow it to seat properly

thanks John, appreciate your efforts. The grill/canopy is a terrible fit, any partial remedy would mean a heavy removal of material in turn resulting in only a resizing of the pieces which would lead to further issues. I'm actually about to tackle it later today, results probably tomorrow.

issues like you`ve mentioned sound familiar and perhaps not even remotely unique......all the more reason many of us on these boards gasp in astonished disbelief/delight when you and a handful of others produce completed models so rapidly....aside from watching YouTube videos builds of your particular model I would be at a loss as to how to proceed
