Ferguson FF 30 Heller 1:24 with 5 ft. finger bar mower


Recommended Posts

This Heller kit is a fine detailed model with only minor disadvantages. Most of the parts are very crisp with plenty range of additional detailing.

Most notably are several sinkholes and a wrong seat mount for the french version. The plastic is somewhat soft and needs a carefully handling if sanding is necessary. Both fronttyres with minor deformations.

 

 

Used colours are of a broad range of different brands and mixed with other colours to achieve the worn effect. ( So it is nearly impossible to give you a useable reference of colour-numbers) :

Tamiya Red, White, Darkbrown

Gunze Grey, White, Bluegrey

Windsor Oils Black, White, Grey, Ochre, Burnt Umber

Pigments Pigeon Grey, Ochre, Black, dif. Rust pigments

Buffing powder (C1 Metalizer)

Detail painting with several Valejo paints

Chipping mostly with Valejo Black Grey and small sponge parts

 

Accessories:

Hoodpins (Scale Production)

Screw Heads (Aber)

Toggle Switch (Top Studio)

Pipe Clamps (Top Studio)

Tools (Hasegawa Garage Kit)

Padlock (Hauler)

 

Extra details:

Toolbox scratchbuild

Headlights drilled out 

Battery mount scratchbuild

5 ft. finger bar mower scratchbuilt

Seat mount scratch built

Hood was milled out to scale thicknes

 

As many other forum members declared, I wish more Utility vehicles in 1:24 too. 😁

Stunning. Beautifully observed modelling of the sort to make me just want to hang up my tools and take up some other hobby.

No, surely no! I was travelling through most of your FlickR Albums and all the impressions honestly affects me. Your talent is breathtaking.

That’s very kind of you. While you’re on Flickr, search for a modeller called Chuck Doan. Like you, he has “the eye” for detail and colour.

Found him on FlickR!

Holy Moly!

Think he is the Houdini of all modellers. I`m speachless!  His works are so realistic. That`s art....must study his works, but first I will explore your fantastic and romantic works. I like it a lot! 

Thanks for sharing his name.
