I may not build such an outrageous thing (like I don't build outrageous things already) but the weathering is something to behold.  However, the crafty modeler could make something like this in say, 1:32 or larger scale and run it with r/c. I need to quit looking at this old Fordson...awww, I can't turn away... Hmmmmm... Woodie

Steve-an HO model? HO HO HO! If I was to build one, it would have to be in a larger scale (1:35 or 1:32) and after last winter here, I am sure it could be put to use. Wonder how it would operate on swampy ground?  I can imagine how to build the thing and make it work, maybe some crazed individual will make one. What a hoot!

I went to your PB link and began looking at cool stuff and then...I was attacked by KOHL'S department store ads that would not go away! I had to reboot to clear them..What were you wanting me to look at? If I know, maybe I can try again. I ain't going to KOHL'S for nothin'....!

Woodie
Click on his profile and you will get his albums and yes there is some really great stuff there. My congrats to PitBull. Great work. Woodie must be you cause I need some deals at Kohl's but didn't get a thing.

That's not calling Woodie, it's crawling around his back yard. Hope it is still there. Heard on the news they had some nasty winds or something.
