Hi all more progress on this it really is a lovely kit, I wish they would release some of the others they used to make.







And I've finally bitten the bullet and started painting the lines on the wheels(I've been avoiding it as my eyes and hands are not as good as they were in my 20s)

Really like this. Pinstriping on the wheels is coming out nicely. It really does need that sort of attention to detail to make it pop.

Industrial and Farm machinery is making a renewed presence in kits, look at that double Arm excavator or whatever Old Wombat purchased. Heller TE20 Fergy Tractors, Forklifts, even vending machines.

To paraphrase Darth Vader, "the circle is now complete" Airfix started with a Ferguson Tractor kit around 1955

Hi all well I had a cunningly clever plan for the pin stripes on the wheels, turned out it was neither cunning nor cleve.

I thought I would get some green insulating tape cut thin strips off and stick them on (turns out its almost impossible to cut thin enough strips consistently and even when you do its incredibly stretchy and shrinks back to size withing about 10 seconds of sticking it. So back to hand painting I don't like to think how many hours of painting and repainting have gone into what I've got done here (and im not even half way there) and im not anything like happy with it.





When I did this in my teens I remember being really chuffed with the finish I achieved then, I don't think I will ever be chuffed with the finish I achieve now.

Are you using acrylic or enamel paint? ???

It looks like you're using acrylics. If so, I'd switch to enamels (mixed a little bit thin) & let capillary action fill the lines needing painting.

Hi all well its finished (I just wish I had the steady hand I had in my youth) still not happy with the wheels.

My missus must like it as she wants it displayed on the mantlepiece.

The keen eyed among you may notice the belt is missing from the flywheel, im just waiting for a piece of leather from my mate Roy to arrive and that will be corrected.
