This a diorama I have been knocking up over the past couple of months. I must make it clear now that the tractor is not a kit - it is a pre-built plastic/metal model from Universal Hobbies - although I have made a few alterations (wheel colour etc.) and given it a fairly heavy weathering. It is a 1965 Massey Ferguson 135 (a tractor that I have a soft spot for as I drive one for work). All other accessories/buildings are scratch built from whatever I could get my hands on.

Wonderful work on your diorama. :notworthy:
You make it look so easy to do when we all know it's hard work.

Jesper.

Looks like the driver has nipped into the 'privy'... Very atmospheric modelling and photography.

Brilliant, Ben! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

I have a soft spot for this tractor too I've never driven one, but they were around a lot during my childhood.

What did you use for the flowers?
