Hello guys,

I saw that there are a lot of hobbies out here, however I didn't see anyone mentioning about collecting small replicas (or not) of tractors' desings.

I live in Spain, and here there are not many places where I can find these specialized stores or websites, however in the United States yes... I would love to know if you have in your house or office these decorative items.

In my case I'd rather wooden items than metal, but it depends on tastes :)

regards!

I believe that is getting to be quite a hobby.

Hello mjodrey... yes, is quite a hobby, and I know many people that have this hobby too ;)

for example, this is my version of a steamroller, of course this is not as detailed as many other items, but it has it's own style...

i like it because I love wood also, and these items are made by different woods (I bought it from a spanish website)

cheers

Welcome franczo. Glad you are here. Please be sure to enter your location on the member map. I have a small collection of garden tractor models. The two current John Deere models and a 6oth anniversary 140.

I really find amazing construction/agriculture equipments and their designs, by the way, where did you get those models?

I know that some companies that distribute small replicas of their models (all of them made of metal or plastic), and I know some woodworking websites that have these models (most of them in the united states, and one from Europe), I don't know if Im allowed to put their links...

have a nice day

I got those at different John Deere dealerships. I think you can put those links in. If not, someone will politely remove them. This is a nice place.

Thank you dave,

well, I'll mention three websites where I found these kind of wooden models:

For example that roller I bought from an European website, they have really cool models, and they are not as expensive as in other websites:

For example this agricultural model that I take from its website: www.erustikal.com

I don't know other european websites for this wooden models, maybe in Germany, but I don't speak german :).

In the united states, however, there are many websites and their products look impresive, but as far as I know they are quite expensive, for example some pictures that I take from their sites:

or this one from another us website:

This is a very good thread that i musta missed until today. :bump:
This is one wall of my livingroom. The cabinets are built-ins and I just took the doors off for display shelves. There is a window where the white shelf is, but I needed more display area. :smile1: I have a spare bedroom that is full of toy tractors and trucks .
Gotta be more people here that collect toy tractors! Lets see some collections

This is mainly for grnspot - he seems to think I don't like a certain brand just because my profile says I don't collect that brand. Well, at least in garden tractors I don't.
