Default John Deere 8370R Full Option

Hello everybody



I want to present my new build.


It is a conversion of an ERTL 1:16 scale model.


List of features:


Independent link suspension frontaxle (almost)
PTO drive
3 speed gearbox
Diff lock on rearaxle
4WD drive with possible of 2WD
Laforge frontlift


Eventually new tires, Michelin or Trelleborg.


Different extra option parts due to be public later as I figure out how to do it....



Please see the pictures from the planning :

I already did some printing for the new tires


These are Michelin 650/60R34 tires


I hope to be able to cast some rubber tires... though I would hate the trial & error process....

Thank you all


A little progress on the Johnny.

I've been working on the front axle and came up with a good solution to replicate the movement of the 'Independent link suspension'.

Also attached is the draft for the front...

Wow, that's some amazing work! I love how those gearboxes and steering components came out.

I wonder what happened to kolpen?
