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:

Wow, those tractors are amazing. I have seen wooden models of equipment but nothing that detailed. I would love to collect toys but I don't have enough spare change to justify it. I like the all medal or wood models. I hate plastic for the most part except for train modeling.

A couple years ago or so, we were at a friends house and the kid's toy box was out with lots of equipment. Wasn't to long before I was on the floor driving tractors around. :D

What beautiful wood toy tractors! WOW -- I have never seen anything like that. I don't collect toys, but I sure am going to be on the lookout for something like that! Thanks for sharing!

Bud, those are pretty cool. They are more than toys, they are heirlooms.

Some of my fire trucks;

Model of Trenton, MO's Pierce pumper I made from order specs. Was purchased new while I worked there:

Antique truck from purchased plans;

HPIM2242 (640x478).jpg

Others from plans;

HPIM2243 (640x478).jpg

HPIM2244 (640x478).jpg

Then there's the antique aerial ladder I made up as I went along;

HPIM2246 (640x478).jpg

Ladder extends to about 4';

HPIM2245 (640x478).jpg

These toys are made mostly from Oak & walnut from the farm & some Birch. I kind of got away from my woodworking habit after getting into the "expensive" habit of collecting garden tractors & equipment, need to get back to it!

I have plans for a wooden JD 110 RF w/mower deck & I think I have the plans for the JD "A" above. ~~ grnspot
