Those are neat! I never thought of using cardboard as a modeling medium like that, good idea.

We're they based on any particular models or units from the family?
Neat idea, when I was a kid, I had a few cardboard models, but they were stamp cut with stickers, not nearly as creative as yours.

Thank you for all the complements!! As some of you have guessed, one is a Cub Cadet, one is a Yard Man and one is a Huskee Supreme. I was lazy and painted these with tooth picks(I could have used a brush, but just never did). The Cub Cadet's wheels move, though not perfectly. We have a Huskee Supreme lawn tractor, so that is one of the reasons why I made a Huskee Supreme. As you can see, they are all MTD brands. I know that MTD's lawn tractors are cheep, but having used some of them for many years, I like the style of there tractors and with a little TLC can be made to go a long time.
