Hi all, I thought there may be a few people interested in my latest projects.

The 2 smaller machines are Cub Cadet conversions.

The AWD model is a Japanese 4x4 with a diesel in it. The 4x4 is a real fun tractor to take to shows. I have a set of duals coming on Wednesday for this one. I'll post some picts when it's done.

I like the last picture, it kind of looks like what the assembly line to look like 45 years ago... only a little smaller Posted Image

Cool looking tractors. Amazing how you 'shrink' them down to GT size!

There are several members here that are that talented. Always gives me an inferiority complex. :)

Those are wonderful, thanks for sharing.

Very nice work. I wonder if the originals ever looked that nice even when coming off of the line.

That is some fantastic work! Some of the best functional scale work that I've seen. Thanks for sharing the pics! Is there a big market for those? Just wondering...

Thanks again, I never would have guessed this could turn into a business, but it has... I have sold 11 so far, and have orders for 9 more right now. It's close to a year worth of work.

If I didn't know better I'd swear you photo shopped the background to make those full sized tractors look smaller. :huh:
Your to be commended for your excellent conversions.
