Yanmar YT5113A

Hasegawa 1/35

 

Hasegawa's new Yanmar Tractor, the first release from their agricultural range which sits alongside the construction machinery range they launched a couple of years ago. It's a fantastic little kit with some amazing detailing, particularly in the cab. The only thing I didn't care for was Yanmar's rather gaudy colour scheme of candy red metallic body panels and gold wheels, so it had to get muddy, as any self-respecting tractor should be.

The kit's also rather good value if you order it from HLJ, less so if you get it in the UK where it's almost double the price.

Very nice! I especially like the wiper strike pattern on the muddy rear window. Great overall mud treatment!! :clap:

Love it. It's gorgeous, just beautiful. Right down to the scratches on the doors to break the mud pattern.

Windscreen wiper sweeps on military models never look 'right', but on your tractor they're perfect.  The same can be said for the 'just right' mucky floor mat, the seat and cab inner panels, the marks in the mud on the door windows, the wet mud on the tyres around the wheel rims, the washer bottle (?) at the rear of the cab, the dusty mucky outline of the YANMAR logo on the rear of the cab; everything right down to the cat gif in your signature - ace.

Excellent build, really good weathering. Any work in progress build photos?

Lovely work as always. With the big doors it has a certain "Dumbo" vibe, which is charmingly at odds with the racey styling.

Exceptional, incredibly realistic.

As someone who lives among tractors I’d say that’s absolutely spot on, you’ve really nailed it. The only addition I’d suggest is a few bits of farm related junk scattered about the cab, a few tools, maybe a bit of John Robert. Oh and some energy drink cans, most farmers I know live on the stuff.

A couple of copies of Country File magazine wouldn't be out of place either....

Depends on the farmer I guess. I was out a run recently and found one agricultural worker sitting in his pickup in a remote lonning perusing a “gentleman’s interest” magazine. Perusing with vigorous intensity, one might say. Country ways.

that is an excellent finish you've achieved.  Great work. 

Funnily enough that’s what I said the guy in the pickup. He certainly appeared to be polishing something anyway.
