    Excellent work by Jerry! In some ways I wish he hadn't painted the Deere tractor as it's neat seeing the raw metal and the craftsmanship involved.

    The coffee can raincap is such a cool finishing touch.

    there isnt a reason not, just a complicated task to do so. If putting together a regular tractor is complicated, imagine one 8 times smaller!

    When I was your age, building model trucks kept me sane during a bad period of my life. Most of my stuff was 1/25th scale plastic models; but if I had the equipment to work metal at the time, it would have been fun to try and make a larger scaled Peterbilt with some functional features.

    Back when I was stuck in an appartment. I got into model building...all 1/64th scale, Started out with Ag stuff, but quickly drifted over towards the truck stuff...I was actually even featured in an article of Toy Trucker & Contractor (July 2006 issue).
    I still love building, but just dont have time...I still build for my regular customers though.
