This T20 & Trailer I made from photos I think the scale is about right. I use to drive one of these on a farm where my dad worked. Made from pine/ash & Iroka.

Thanks craigrozema it wasn't easy, the photos of the sides were printed landscape on A4 and I used these as the length of the tractor about 9" and the front & back photos of the tractor were printed portrait which I used as the width, this helped me with the scale.

Thanks John glad you like it, was nice one to build wasn't sure how to work out the scale but it turned out ok.
Maybe someone could draw up plans for this.

Hello shedbuddie,
                       wow,wow,wow!  what a beautiful  tractor, faithfully reproduced.
The artfully crafted mudguards alone make this a mantlepiece model.
Fergies once were very common here in Australia, I still own a Corgi-toy front end loader version from my childhood.

Thanks for the memories these pictures evoke.
Alan
