Started working on a 1/2 scale replica of a John Deere H back in the fall of 2012. Started out with this old Gilson RM7 mower, which was the first riding lawnmower my dad owned.
With some slight modifications to where the gearbox goes, I will be using the rear end section of the mower.
Installed temperary rear tires and rims to be able to get proper height for front end. Used a old Bosch conveyor gearbox from work for the steering.
