Yes that is a narrow front jd 730 I built but it isn't finished either . It still gets a old fashioned front end loader for it I will design and build it this winter.

I have saved garden tractor pictures for many years and so glad people posted them. So hopefully people are enjoying the building process photos on my little projects too.

Your scaling and replication turned out very good. The headlights really bring it home, they turned out great.

Thanks , I just have the removeable roof panels yet to sand and buff out then the mirrors, side roof cab lights, etc. The cab windows will still make a big difference but they can wait so i can get going on the blade. I even got the decals for the blade made so I will have them ready to go. I also had the mini 4020 Diesel decals made and I applied one of them and it looks great. I'll post the next progress picture with the cab on with the yellow stripes trimmed with black now done on the rear and side of the cab by noon.

Thanks , I'm hoping one more week but my folks are not doing so good so were helping them a lot this summer. and the shop projects have had to be put on the back burner. But I am still trying to spend a couple days each week on it.
