Another build that I started a few years ago and then came to a standstill, so I thought in between doing the other two tractors I would crack on with this as well ( I do get bored easily and like a change). Anyway, progress so far, wheels are just popped underneath to give an idea of proportions :

Another one from my past, thought I'd make a start on a Case 1394, a tractor that I spent many many hours driving as a young lad. This one will probably be magpie, but I haven't ruled out it sporting the red and black Case IH livery yet Anyway, engine and bonnet underway:

Thought I'd share some of these with you all, I was brought up on Lego Technic since the age of 5 and built up a huge collection over the years. Most of it has gone on ebay now but I still have all the 1970s sets boxed and stowed away, mainly because Lego is like crack cocaine to me I delved back into the hobby about 13 years ago and became an AFOL (adult fan of lego) and thanks to ebay I relapsed and had again amassed a ridiculously huge collection. Here are some of the many creations I built before going into Lego rehab.

For some reason, these are some of my favourite (older) models. Quite crude in places but have an attractiveness about them!

As I had a spare bonnet from a 1056, and as the 475 is almost finished I thought I would move forward a few decades to a Case IH 685 with the L cab, which is basically the same frame as used on the 74 series. Anyway, progress so far, engine ( international this time!)/ gearbox made, mudguards added, cab front made and bonnet depth cut down and side panels shortened.

Starting to work my way through some of our gear here, so thought I'd copy our little feed trailer as it makes a good match for the 475. It's a weeks but made for MF and sold in their colours (although ours is blue, but I intend to respray it in Massey livery) Anyway, progress so far:

Finally got around to making a start on an International 475, which will be based on a tractor that we still have here. The 475 was the only nash to be fitted with a Perkins engine, basically the same engine that was used in the Massey 165. Anyway, here's the progress so far, everything is still a little rough and needs some sanding and filing, but it's starting to take shape

This is a current build I've been wanting to build for a long time. It's a Roadless 75 with a Mk4 Hydrocut hedge cutter. This outfit features in an old Hydrocut brochure from the early 70s and I've always thought this combination looked pretty impressive. Not many Hydrocuts were mated to a 4wd tractor because of front wheel clearance issues, but this one has it's hydraulic oil tank modified by means of having it angled at the bottom edge to allow for this. It is also unique as it sports the old flail head. Only two pics to work from in the brochure!

Been meaning to try this one for a while and finally got chance last night, Britain's 4220 fitted with a UH Stoll loader. The loader is damaged at the headstock, so this will be removed and replaced with a scratch-built one that can take different attachments. Progress so far...
