McCormick Farmall

Worked for a long time on this one,  a McCormick Farmall B from about 1940. Made out of mainly ash, also some merbau, beech, wenge and european oak is used. The tractor is about 30 cm long and 26cm width. The front wheel can be rotated, and the steering wheel can turn, but there is no link between these two. In addition, the seat can be tilted and also the wheels and PTO can rotate. The towbar can swing. If you would like to build it yourself, you can find the drawing for it on my website.
Also this time it was LBD who made a video.


The tires are made using my wheel jig.



Below a few more pictures.

My father and uncle had a Farmall just after the 2nd world war from the marchall plan. I only remember him from pictures. Back then you could only buy a tractor if you also worked for others. And that was plowing in their case.

A wonderful tractor, many details to look at. Never have seen a tractor with one front wheel. Well done.

Another awesome model by a very clever maker. Top marks Jan, and again well done to Alex for his collaboration.

Thanks for that Tony, but when YOU had asked for one I had sent one for free. But your support is also welcome. I hope you will enjoy building. A lathe is helpfull for this one.

Dutchy, the level of detail and workmanship in this (and all of your other models) is so impressive and incredible. Beautiful work!
Dutchy, a beauty to admire!   Having spent years in the MidWest, working for NorthrupKing Seed Co, I had the opportunity to visit many farms and see many vintage tractors, still working the fields.  I saw a number of A,B, and M models.  I gotta say though, I never saw one with a single wheel on the front.  The MN model had a single wheel (the N designated "Narrow") but the B is a new one on me.  Great work and terrific detail from "the master".  
This is one of the most highly detailed antique tractor models I have seen!
