I just though I would share this with everyone.  I built this thing from scratch about 7-8 years ago when I was big into R/C cars.  It is powered by a 3.5cc nitro engine with the exhaust run from the stacks just like the real thing.  I have never run it because of the time I have in it I just didn't want anything to happen to it.  lol The frame is aluminum, the fenders and roll cage are made of brass along with the gas tank on the front, and the hood is balsa wood covered in fiberglass.  Let me know what you think and I can post more pics also.

Man, it looks great. I don't think i could resist running it. If it gets scuffed then you can repair it since you designed and built it.

Does not look like a toy to me! Looks like a serious pulling tractor.

Seig Manufacturing( Rc Model Manufacturer) is in Montezuma, Ia about 30 miles from Me. And they sponsor Model Tractor pulls every summer in Montezuma.

Thanks everyone for the kind words...I guess from the comments I need to get over it and fire it up!  I just have this image in my mind of a radio glitch and it going off full throttle on its own into any permanent object and being destroyed, but I guess I built I can fix it.  Still want to post more pics.

Thank you I am actually starting a second career as a machinist.  I have been in construction all my life, but always have had a love for tractors.
