It looks a little better every time you post it if you can imagine that considering it was awesome from the get go. Excellent work what is going to be your next project?

I think it will look nicer with windows in the cab. Not sure about the next garden tractor project . The 4020 is packed away in the back shed for the winter and I don't have room in my little workshop to build the 5 bottom plow. I have started on two models and have plans all ready for three more models . I have not built a model since I started the garden tractors. So I will probably build those five models and I have two orders for Sugar Beet Harvester Models. The models aren't as exciting as the garden tractors. I do have three more unique garden tractor ideas so I'm not done yet. By spring I'm sure I will convert the Wheelhorse and the Cub Cadet to something unique. Right now they look ok but I have plans for them to look much different next summer. Either that or I will buy a couple more garden tractors

I built the top and bottom windshield frame today with a 3 inch curve in it. It will look less boxy with a nice curve in it. I still have to work on the sides of the frame and the actual mounting brackets. The side windows look great and are now now installed.

I wish I could do work like that.
Perhaps in 20 years ...

I have been away from the site for awhile and although I will admit I did not go all the way back to where I left off here, I can tell by the finished project that your work, as usual, is exceptional, admirable, and awe inspiring. Keep up the good work!!
As far as your model building projects, dont forget there is a subforum here for hobbies and I for one would like to follow your model builds as well.

My projects are far from perfect and I am always the first to admit it but I sure do enjoy creating things in my little workshop.
These garden tractors have been the greatest fun for me and to get to share them with so many nice people has been so fun.
I have always loved garden tractors . The model building has been fun but not as fun as these mini tractors.

How long did this take start to finish? I think its amazing what you created there. Can't find those craftsman anymore. Too many kids living in apartments with ipods and not enough go-karts 7 garages,

I got all the hard stuff done in 6 months on the project and now I just work on it once in a while. I did get all the windows in the cab but have not taken it back apart to paint it yet. Mini bikes and go carts and doodlebugs were my best memories as a young boy.
