I'm with you Woodie love those tractors. I had one just like that as a very young boy in a farm set. The way the tyres are painted with the dirt below the tread and then wiped clean on the outside is excellent you would swear it was real.
40C here today so I will be staying inside.
Thanks gentlemen for the kind comments about the tractors. I have always liked tractors since I was a child.
The Fordson Power Major was built from 1958 until 1960 when it was superseded by the Fordson Super Major that looked the same but had small detail changes. The model is made by Universal Hobbies and comes ready made in die cast metal and plastic. This model now costs around £22 in England.
The other tractor (the darker blue colour) is a Fordson Standard N type and these were built from the 1929 until 1945. The model is a Scaledown white metal kit and is very heavy. The kit for these now cost £78 in England.
Not sure about the availability of either model in the States Woody.
