Look at what I found in new listings from SQUADRON shop...
No, I don't have a financial stake in this except that I intend to send them some dinero for one or two of these kits!!!





A WW2 US tractor, a 1:35 scale Case VAI to be exact.
I have wanted a tractor or two for my layout for a long time, yep, there are 1:32 die cast tractors available for $$$$$
But until now, I haven't found one cheap (about $25 USD)
and this thing can be "modified" to become the basis for rail tractors and other neat critters.
Kit #THM35001 can be seen on Squadron's website. I have ordered from them and they get stuff to me quickly.
Imagine using the upper part for the rail tractor, etc. and having wheels and big tires left over for cool junque.
Or maybe the whole thing rusted out and sitting in a field with a "for sale" sign. The mind boggles!
So, here is an inexpensive Christmas present that Santa can bring you...

I bought one awhile back. 20.00 from China on eBay. 

I will post some pictures of the contents of the kit if you like.

I was thinking Fordson type critter. 

There is another with a front end loader attachment.

Stephen, yes, please post a photo or two. I never look at fleabay so I miss a lot.
This looks quite similar to a Fordson and since it's plastic and cheap, I feel better about whacking it apart to make something I want.
The loader model would be very cool also...More junk to set around!

Hi Stephen  :wave:



Nice find on the new tractor kit !  :thumb:

I am looking forward to your new build.  :)


Stephens last railtractor is one I have always liked a lot.  :old dude:

I thought I'd paste a photo or two of it over from Stepens Thread, as some may not have seen it.  :us:





:pimp:










Great scenery it finds its self chuggin' through as well.  :mex:



Those new 1:35 tractor kits are just TOO tempting ...

... but I'm gonna be good ( for now ) & see what  :Crazy:  INSANE critters can be born from these placky parts !  :cool:



The kit might even be quite good for a 1:48 / On30 critter BASH ...

... it's a fairly small tractor in 1:35 scale ...

... so used in 1:48 / On30 it would just appear to be a bit larger tractor.

I'm sure it would work nicely.  L:



I'm trying to recall if I've seen a funky railtractor from Peter ( 2foot6 ) on Freerails ?

If you're looking in Peter, I know for sure you have Posted some  C :cool: :cool: L  Down-Under 1:1 railtractor pics.

Mas muy coolio! 

Let's take it out fer a spin. 

The front loader is too much. 

But I don't understand how a front loader would work on the rails?!  ;)

I would think if it was used on a logging line,
a log would be slung between the rear end of the rail tractor and a disconnect,
giving some traction to the loco.


This method was used on a number of tramlines.
