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. 😁

That is truly astonishing. With the background detail I'm still not convinced you haven't just gone to the local farm and photographed a real one.

I echo the thoughts of the previous posts on the realistic finish and photos. You have achieved an outstanding finish with excellent detailing.

Lovely job. We don't see many models of this sort and it makes a nice refreshing change. Nice one.

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.

As everyone else here has said, that is brilliant. If you hadn't said, I would have thought it was the real thing.

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.

How is it possible to make a model look more real than the real thing?  That is truly, jaw-droppingly amazing. :thumbsup:

Astonishing!  

Would've sworn it was a real tractor I'm looking at.

Superb talent and realism!
