The 1/16 stopped at the 80 series. There were a few Buhler red/cream that made it to market but Buhler was unhappy with quality so they ended. (Scale Models). All the new tractors are Tomy/Ertl and are 1/32


Never was a mass produced 145 in any scale.

I have a friend that custom builds 1/16's from scratch. I don't think he has ever done a Versatile, as his orders are all for Big Buds and Steigers, but I'll bet he is up for a challenge. Probably wouldn't help the OP though, as he is booked a couple years out, and for what he gets for his models, you probably wouldn't want to give them as birthday presents.

It boggles my mind the time and detail he puts into them. He has been working this winter on a replica of the 950 Bud that came from Canada and went to Texas. He went to Great Falls MT a while back to take pictures and measurements while it was in the shop for a new engine. I'll see if he'll let me take and post some pictures when it's completed, it will blow you away.

If you're ever in a situation where you want a 1/16, and time and money are not considerations, PM me and I'll put you in touch with him.

So time is a few years, what kind of dollars are you talking? Not looking for a quote of course just a general idea if you have one

If a guy budgeted somewhere in the 12k range, you'd be pretty close. He does implements for them too, I've seen a Friggstad scraper, a subsoiler, and a chisel plow. It also absolutely blows me away the pictures he has shown me of guys toy collections, we're talking 300k worth of collectible toys, and that doesn't include the buildings and display cases
I found this picture on the interweb, but I think this is one of his creations.

I have seen some Designation 6 4WD toy tractors from the 1980's. I believe they were an 836 and 876.. I've also seen 1/16th scale Versatile 2000 Trans-axial Combines, one sold for $300 at auction in box.


Selling the parts that keep your TW15 Ford and 4750 Versatile Swather running....
