waking only made one slight mistake over a decal but they miles ahead of universal hobbies whoops inaccurate decants ltd even britains are more accurate than them on track record proven fact.  ford tractors with completely wrong cabs- centre drive propshafts that should have been  side drive propshafts, 4 cylinder engined massey ferguson trying to be passed off as six cylinder tractors  what a complete joke and insult to people with real knowledge.  Not all collectors  bow and scrape and think universal hobbies  are the masters and must have everything they produce just because its them if its right or wrong.  WI king Weise  REPLICAGRI FAR SUPERIOR TECHNICALLY ALL DAY LONG

I've just found these top seceret photos of the team at universal hobbies.

Why the f*** didn't they make it a 7530 if its a special edition??   The tyres and wheels were way oversized that's what makes it look odd...………………..Same with new 7310R.

Mind you the new JD forager is a peach of a model so not all Wiking JD are wrong...………………...just most of them:D

agree should have been 7530 that would have been sensible move!  also agree about going off topic  otherwise if we listed all thats wrong by universal hobbies the thread would be hundreds of pages long

Spot on there Brian mate. Well, we had a wet day today, so popped into the jd dealers and picked up the wiking forage harvester. Very nice indeed.

mmmmm, wonder if after the 7430 they will do the 6930 again. You would feel sick if you paid £250 on eBay recently.

i am surprised they havnt milked the casting more chris, but wiking dont seem to do it , on any of their range ,they could have done a black one for instance . sure a few re numbers to like a 6920 ,prob a bit more common down this way than the 30 , stuff like that .

hope they do not start going down the route of rainbow colours options tractors and loose the great credibility they have built up and just keep investing in developing and producing top quality models unlike some other manufacturers that just milk castings

Yeah a full “rainbow range” of non existent  would be wrong , but there was a silver lot done and blacks , from dealers i belive , know tuckwells sold a few blacks for sure , so they sort of pass as real deals , not everyones cup of tea mind .

in some ways its nice they dont milk them , keeps values up for collectors for one, keeps them desirable when new stuff comes out then.
