This is the tractor that started it all. I disassembled my real 8N and took on the challenge of building a model of it.
An enormous number of hours have gone into developing a scale model that captures the personality of the 8N tractor.
This model has an incredible amount of detail. This color version is still all-wood, done in Maple. The black parts such as the radiator cap and fuel door latch are recreated in Ebony.
The tires are formed in Black Walnut, then dyed black. The engine has spark plugs and a distributor, but I draw the line at making wooden wires. I have considered it, though.
The finish is high-gloss lacquer over the red dyed wood, revealing the wood grain. The grey sheet metal is a 2-part high-gloss paint.
This tractor is serialized to ensure it is truly a Wood'N Tractor. There may be
other wooden models out there, but nobody else approaches the attention to both scale and detail. This is the finest model available, truly a collector model.
Tractor dimensions are approximately 10" long, 6" wide, 5" high. Contact me for payment instructions.
