I mainly collect 1/64 scale, all brands but mostly John Deere, have close to about a thousand. I also collect construction equipment, 1/64 to 1/50th scale with a couple of larger Bobcat pieces. Growing up I had Tonka trucks and 1/16 scale farm toys but they were used hard.

I love the white one in the second pic. What is that & what brand. Is it still available.

Thats a 1:12 scale Farmall Super A Demonstrator model from the Franklin Mint company. The box reads only 5000 of them( toy models) made. Pic #1. The other pic is a actual one a man in my Tractor club has I believe its around 1949. Not many real ones around now. The demonstrator was lent out by the dealer so farmers could try them. Most of them were painted red after the dealers were done with them.

If the one that your friend has is the genuine article it will be a 1950 model.  They only made the white demo models in 1950 and the models that were painted white were the Cub. Super A and the C.  Neat little pieces of history.

That's a nice collection of 1/64th scale toys. Quite the variety too I might add. Will also add that I'm very happy to see all of that Green!!!  :thumbs:
