Such a nice conversion, so much like the Blocher kit from Germany, very professional.

Thanks Claus, I studied many pics of the Blocher kit before and during my conversion.

Cheers

Nice and tidy. Good job on the electrical wiring. That's one thing that definitely pays off when you take your time to get it right. Looking forward to some more video!

I know what you mean, I hate messy wiring

Peeing it down today so managed to finish the wiring and shoot a quick indoor vid, been playing around with different engine sounds too, let me know what you think.

Indoor vid

nice job - it's not uncommon for the big tractors to only have a towing eye. 3 point hitch is used for implements which need to be lifted, which is frequently not the case for the large ploughs and seed drills that require high towing forces. I'd be looking to get that tipping trailer to work first

Thanks ricm, I know what you mean but I still like the idea of a working hitch, must be a european thing

The trailer is on the to do list, I want to make a new ally chassis for it, need to get the tractor finished first though.

The rose joints, clevis's and brass arrived so found some time this week and cranked up the mill:





Thanks for lookin
Stu

Awesome. I get distracted a lot too, Stu, but your 3 point hitch looks right at home on the back of the tractor. RC4WD Gelande? Those scale 4x4 trucks are a lot of fun!

Quite a few neat building techniques in this...... I really like the articulation detail. It looks to operate very well and with great scale appearance in the vid. Well done Stu!

Thanks guys, I know its been awhile (was working away from home most of the summer) but I have an update!

Made a dozer blade for the front:





Picked up a door strip from a job this week, going to rip it down for a cutting edge:



Started making a box to transport it in, this is the base:





Will try to shoot a vid at the weekend.
Cheers

Finished the blade:



And fitted some flashing beacons:

Lights

I have also set one of the channels on the usm-rc2 to EKMFA and am controlling this with switches on the Taranis.
The Taranis is programmed to send a set number of pulses depending on which function you want on/off.
