Gabriel,  nice to know that you have a toy collection,  mine are all in boxes now.  I used to have a huge working farm when I was younger of 1/64 stuff, I also collect 1/16 too. have a nice sized collection.

Thanks!!! Nice collection!!! Aren't those farm toys great!!! You have a few like I've had, and do have! Did I see a Massey tractor? We have a lot of farm toys and buildings too(the majority is 1/64). My favorite is my 1/64 Massey 1155(like the first tractor I learned to drive). We've had some farm toys through the years that got broken and thrown away and I wish they hadn't. Did you ever have a farm layout?

When I was about 13 my entire room was laid out in a farm scene.  I ate drank and slept toy tractors.  I can see that you did the same.

You probably don't have any pics of your layout do you? I have primarily had train layouts, though my brother had a farm layout and we had lots of fun with it. I at times think we ought to make one just like it again. I did start to build a layout of our farm with a train running around the farm. But like so many of my previous train layouts, I eventually got tired of the one I was working on and would clear my layout board and would start on another one. I do really like tractors(both big and small) and farm toys! Farm toys were, and are, always fun, because you get to play what happens in real farming.

no pics just fond memories. that was back in the late 70s . I really enjoy bringing toys back to life now . Working on 2 IH 915 combines and an old IH loadstar 2 ton truck now should finish when weather allows me to paint.

That sounds like fun! I have a 1/16 MF 8160 that has a broken front axle that I hope to fix sometime. This tractor is more special to me now than when I first got it, now that we have a 8160.

I've visited there website before, but I don't think they had any parts for tractors made by Scale Models(that's who made my 8160). Thanks anyway! I will have to check there website again to see for sure.
