Good evening  all glad you like my Trusty its details are model 5 powered by a 5hp JAP engine it was made in 1943 and it was used on an airfied during the Dig for victory war time campaign here in Britian ploughing up the edges of the runway for food production .

It was owned by a Airforce pilot who also had a large house and gardens where it served  after the war It will be restored and finished in RAF blue thanks for looking

Thanks for the engine info, the local engine appears to be complete , I was watching a BBC film called War Time Farm and they showed and talked about the Trusty Tractor it was used to glean every bit of usable land.They also showed a Mower like the one in our local Uxbridge museum.Is this your engine ? Thanks Mike
