Hello This is the tractor I made the rear wheels for in my previous post.
The bonnet/hood made from mahogany and (I think) boxwood sandwich together and the rest is mostly pine

Field Marshall

The first single-cylinder Field Marshall tractor to be introduced in 1930 was the Marshall 15/30.  Field Marshall tractors were commonly used to pull agricultural machinery such as threshing machines from site to site. Once in place, the Field Marshall tractor would be used as the powerplant for the threshing machine, the tractor's belt pulley coupled by a large flat drive belt to the threshing machine's pulley.

Another museum quality wood toy! You really turn out a lot of projects. This is a real beauty and quite a work of art. Thanks for sharing.

Simply magnificent!

Were the mudguards made from sections of a lathe-turned bowl?

Certainly not something I would give to a young child to play with as a toy, but an older one might appreciate it for the work of art it is.

Thanks Wombat for your comment. The mudguards were made on the lathe a 3/4" hole drilled in the center and cut in half then shaped.
