Hi GWR and all. I have made up the kit and will post a picture or two soon. I must admit I am not used to making up metal kits and found it more than a little fiddly. The 'holes' where the part were supposed to go were not very distinct, and I had to do a lot of 'holding' while the joints set. It is a lovely little thing and is most suitable for my 1940s layout. gomlet99.

Hi Brian, thanks for your comment. All the pictures I have seen of model and actual tractors, they have been grey, similar to the early versions of the later, iconic, Massey Ferguson TE20. The kit instructions say to paint it grey.

I don't think I have a model tractor at the moment. We have a small version of a real one. Does that count? Is an old JD 655. Is seen here partly covered as the barn was being reroofed. We had borrowed scaffolding and strapped the scaffolding to the tractor for extra security. It used to have a cutting deck under it. Its the 4WD version with the diff lock, PTO & 3 point linkage etc. Was 16hp but in its lifetime it was upgraded to 18hp when it was rebuilt before my dad bought it. It used to have controls for a front bucket until one of my brothers friends hit them clean off with a borrowed mini digger as he wanted a go at digging! To be fair I had a little go and it wasn't as easy as it seems though my brother has used much larger things on a farm so he was used to it.
