I don't actually have many photos yet it was all such a rush to put it back together for the show. The decals went on as it was getting dark the night before the show.

Here are the ones I have just now

Looks great John, and it looks like you're having fun.

I sure like those plows. I've gotta get myself a set soon.

The Elf looks great. It doesn't look like there were many GT's at that show to keep the Elf company.

Its a shame I missed that set that sold on ebay for 30 Euro, even with shipping I think it would have been doable for you. I will keep my eyes peeled

Hi Brian the Elf was the only GT in amongst all the old Agricultural tractors.

GT's just aren't that popular around here, there is a show later in the year that I plan to go to that does have a horticultural class which usually has Gutbrods, Bolens and Wheel horse at - This is also a working display so I will either plough or get the finger bar mower going

Cheers

To save on shipping just make sure the next Elf you buy comes complete with a set of ploughs  :rolling:
