Awesome looking tractor Ernie!!  Great details throughout.  The colour combination, the shine.. Your execution of ideas went off the chart, I knew you could pull it off!! Great job E

If you don't take a chance, you never had one to begin with.

Totally cool Awsome job what did you use for the custom air foil ? Almost looks like a portion of a cement mixer but way more aero dynamic than the big bulky originals keep up the great work

The sharks could use this as a golf cart...lol They at least will be going in style!!  Beautiful tractor Ernie,  the pictures show no justice compared to seeing up close, the rear mudflaps and the headache rack really sets it off

Great looking build Big-e!  As I was looking at the pictures I thought that the rear wheel covers were spray can lids and the air dam was a part of a funnel. What I can't figure out is how you did such a nice paint job from acrylic craft paint. What do you use for thinner? What did you use for a clear? I assume you also rubbed it out. The finish looks great but I haven't tried acrylic in an airbrush and I'm curious as to the learning curve to that method?  Any help would be apreciated! Nice work! CoolThumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Thanks yes use acrylic paint almost for everything except primary colours find spray cans better for them !I thin with methyl hydrate gas line antifreeze ! Lots of coats of commercial floor wax, yes I polish after but usually don't need to !
