Hey everyone, I just finished building these 2 identical cast metal tractors that came from "Woodland Scenics" old Scenic Details line.





It doesn't say what make of tractor that these are based on, or what colour they should be painted.
I have seen these done before, in John Deere colours, so that's how I painted mine.





I'll surprise Chester, with one of them in his workshop.




Thanks for having a look!

I believe WS modeled the early, 'unstyled' John Deere Model B, but of course couldn't sell it under that label without licensing and fees. Nice job.

Beautiful looking tractors, Greg.

I suppose if WS had identified the prototype they would have paid Deere-ly.

Chester ain't gonna be too happy when he comes back to see those metal wheels have chewed up that nice wooden floor of his shop garage.

Mike, David, George & Pete, thanks for your interest and for your posts.

Mike, I'm always trying to make others laugh, so I really appreciate when someone does the same to me. Good one!

David, no wooden floors were damaged in my effort of tractor placement.

Bob, Karl, Chuck & Louis, it's always nice to hear from you guys!

Bob, I'm glad that you enjoy seeing my work!
So a big thank you for that!

Karl, I've never heard them called Johnny Poppers before.

Chuck, I've had some of these WS kits for years, decades even. I just felt now is the time to build them.

Louis, they are oldies but goodies!
It's kind of a shame that WS doesn't make these metal kits anymore.
