Thanks for the very nice comments. I have posted on my webpage now for over 7 years. I have over 3000 photos of the many models I have built over the years. So posting here has been a fun change for me. I don't think people realize how much I really do love garden tractors. I LOVE Garden Tractors ! It has been painful the last couple months not getting to work on them, ha,ha. Today I should get the last model parts painted. So I am really getting close to getting back to the little tractors again. I am going to rearrange the shop so I can get three or four garden tractors in it to work on them for the winter. But I can't do it until the big model is all done and out of their. Thanks again.

The models were out of the shop and by 3:00 this afternoon 2 more garden tractors were moved in the shop with room for squeezing a fourth in , yippee !!! Got to winterize the camper and take it to storage , then a day of yard work and then I will widen the front snowblade on the mini 4020 . I'll be sure to post a picture and be smiling for sure. We loaded the Mack Truck today too . Deb will post a video on you-tube tomorrow and I will post 10 or 15 more pics on my webpage if anyone is interested.

Anyone wanting to see the video of the finished model there is a link on my webpage today on you-tube. The models are loaded and on there way . Tonight I started building a cab for my mini articulating loader. I guess I didn't sit around too long , ha,ha.

The models have been delivered and I am busy building a home made cab this week for my mini loader. I should get it done by the weekend and get going on the mini 4020 snow blade widening project on Monday.

Looks good, Don! You must have some decent 'tools' for fabing things.

I saw a full size 5 bottom being moved from one field to another this morning on the way to work... made me think about this thread. Man, your local steel supplier must love you.
