      colosal images stream provoked by discovering the Yahoo groups, I
      asked Woodie if Hope was also his work. Looking back I can see you
      both model quite different scenes but I recognice a certain aproach in
      both that I woauld like to find in my own modelling.

      > good morning daniel thanks for your comments.with the little deutz
      it has been a long process . i was lucky in getting a chassie from
      Bernard Snoodyk .i understand that bernard has retired from
      professional model building shame because he is seriousaly gifted.i
      think the chassie is to 1-35 scale but looks great in 1-32.that is one
      of the draw backs to 1-35 and 1-32 is the lack of to scale chassies
      with quality mechanism.i like to build the bodies not the mecks.armed
      with some 1-1 referance i built the bodie out of stryine.the engine
      hood is a little heigher than the original,, but works well with the
      rectangular shape of the roof.i did a lot of research on seats the
      original tractor style i near impossible to scratch build so i wanted
      on that was easy to build and looked good,the bench style works
      well.everthing else is scratch built.you would not believe it ,that i
      built 2 other versions before this one they all ended up in the bin.my
      interest is of a obsesed hobbie maker i feel if i approached it
      commercially i would loose a lot anyway all the best kim.
