That's beautiful. What, that's it, only 1 picture?

That deserves more pictures posted, for us to enjoy your fine work.

That looks great! And like said, more pictures! I also see another tractor in the back, I think you need to take pictures of that also... so we have something to compare your work to :D

So far, I'm seeing a B+... Not because the work isnt nice, just a lack of pictorial records.

I'm sure you can get the grade way up with just a few more clicks... :D

(It looks beautiful, thanks for sharing. Mustve been a labor of love)

Looking real good. Brings back memories, as a kid we had a 400 and a 560 that I got to drive. My neighbor just got a Super M that looks like new.
