thanks, I still have a lot to do like lights, both break pedal assemblies with drums , a realistic looking shifter housing , more detail below the seat, side levers for three point and pto , lot of dash detail work left, a rear light , more work on the front vertical steering tube, a detailed three point hitch and pto on the back and the left side large flywheel cover . Also got to build the left side wheel insert. But now this gives me plenty of enthusiasm to keep going on it. I really like it and for sure plan to build a couple more narrow front half scale tractors. I just think they are cool projects.

Thanks, this picture shows progress from yesterday as I built the two consoles beside the seat and mounted the chrome levers and led knobs . Today I will work on the chrome steering column. I'm looking for tractor number 8 and got my eye on two possible Bolens. I really want to make another narrow front , not sure what color yet. I still have a lot to do on my four tractors but the best time to get a good deal is when you really don't want it , ha,ha. Seems like when you really want one you can't find one.

Here is the first group picture with the new additions , looks like I might have a new one on Tues. as I might get a running Wheel Horse for $100.00 . Still working on the Bolens deal too and plan to stop at a even ten . Ten is enough for anybody.

It's hard to believe about 8 weeks ago I only had the three jd's in the back row. I think my wife was a little surprised seeing that many in the driveway adding them up with the calculator :dancingbanana:

Who are you trying to kid about stopping at ten. It isn't working on my side of the fence. :smilewink:
You need to move to the country so you can have a pole barn to put those tractors in. :thumbs:

Don, that is simply amazing work! I found your website around 2 years ago and was flabbergasted by the speed and quality that you put out in your models. Now I see you have started with GT's and am not suprised in the speed and attention to detail that you are putting into your half scale tractor "models". Your work is astounding and I am looking forward to watching more as your addiction grows. I'm really looking forward to see what you do with the Wheel Horse! But PLEASE keep it red. LoL!

Quite the herd, Don! They are all great tractors! Just remember, you built some for grandkids, etc., so technically they aren't yours!
