custom 1/64 combines, Gleaner R60 added

Hey guys, heres some pics of my 1/64 IH 1480 and 1/64 JD 7720 and the scratch built pickup headers I made. Some of you may have seen them before on other toy forums, just thought I'd share them. Havent posted pics here before, I hope they work.

Re: custom 1/64 combines

I made the pickup headers from scratch, the combines I customized. The 1480 is heavily customized (ERTL never produced a 1480 in 1/64 scale), the top half was a 2388 and the bottom a 1660 with a scratch built cab. I added a Moore's steerable rear axle and raisable feederhouse.

Re: custom 1/64 combines

I am familiar with the Gleaner L and L2 (we farmed with a IH 1480 and Gleaner L for years). I have made a L, it was pretty easy, I used balsa however I didn't get much detail into it and kinda gave up on the project. There is a company that makes the Gleaner L2 in 1/64 scale, however they are quite expensive, but very nice. Check out www.scratch-cast.com

Re: custom 1/64 combines

Sorry, no pics of my L,, like I said earlier it was very crude and doesn't even get on my combine shelf. I do plan to purchase one of the scratch-cast L2s soon, however I have a hard time justifiying over $100 for a 1/64 combine (their L2 is awsome though). Use your imagination and throw one together with some balsa or whatever you can find to create your own version.
Later,
John
