I am really impressed by this build. It really shows how hard things were back in those days and the ruggedness of the machinery, right down to the furrow indicator mounted on the front. Can't wait to see this completed!!!!

Scratch building is the art of taking some plastic, wood, metal, ect., and a few tools to create reality on a small scale.
Carl, Those are really good pictures and I really appreciate you having posted them for me and the rest of the guys. These pictures answer some of the questions that I have had over the lifts and the scale of the various componets. Actually those folks walking along help to answer some of the scale questions. Thanks again, Fred
Great pictures Carl. Fred you have done such a great job, you have some great skill. The guys that used these old tractors must have been real happy when they got there hands on one. I mean those tractors look old and slow and rough rideing but what an improvment over animal teams. Very nice job Fred Dave
Thanks guys, your words are encouragement to me. I have found that my model making really doesn't fit in on most forums but I appreciate the welcome I have received here. I do build logging equipment but when I spend 10 months working on one project I don't get to build many models. I've turned up the wick on the plow as I need this project completed by the first of June as well as all the other spare time projects. About the Big Four, They were built in the early 1900s both in Winnipeg, Canada as well as Minneapolis and were used on the Plains of Canada and the US. Thanks again, looking forward to all your various projects. Fred
