I tried to find scale models of Colt, Case or Ingersoll garden tractors and quickly found out that they don't exist. There seems to be a lot of John Deere stuff out there but other brands don't seem to have any sort of representation by the people in the business of cranking out these products. I have to wonder why? Do they believe that there isn't a sufficient market for them? To me, that would be a huge error on their part.

Because I couldn't obtain what I wanted, I ended up buying Ertl's 1/16th scale Black Knight Demonstrator and Golden Demonstrator models of full size Ag tractors. I did buy a Spirit of 76 but it arrived damaged due to the way the moron who sold it to me packaged it so it got shipped back so I could claim a refund through Paypal. I'm keeping my eye open for another one for a reasonable price.

I love the collectible things. I would love to find some of the scale models of all the various tractor makes but for some reason they all jump on the green band wagon, and I don't mean that to put down John Deeres. It would be nice if they would all open their eyes and realize there are other colors out there and just as many people collecting them.

While I completely understand what you are saying, I have to wonder if maybe there's some "green" incentive flowing to the toy guys, thanks to the marketing gurus working for the green bandwagon? So maybe you have it backward.

I thought I'd get some more discussion going on this topic by posting some of my models. I've restored a few including my CC 126 and 129 as well as customizing a Ford LGT145 into an Oliver. I'm still looking for a restorable CC 122 if anyone has one sitting in a sandbox somewhere :smile1:

While I don't have any garden tractor scale models I do have several full-size tractor scale models. I have a few IH Farmall tractors and implements in 1/16 scale as well as 3 Massey Fergusons. The 1/16 scale takes up a ton of room however and it was during one of my many trips to my parent company in Germany where I learned to love 1/32 scale. They are big enough that a lot of detail can be displayed but small enough that you can disply a bunch of them without taking up a whole room! I have several 1/32 MF tractors and some very detailed implements. Universal Hobbies makes some excellent tractors and implements in 1/32 scale. My goal is to display all of them once I finish off the basement and "farm office" area.

I agree,1/32 scale is big enough to show lots of detail but doesn't take up much space.
