OH COOL! John Deere Green! Looks great already!
I've been wanting to paint a Farmall Little A for DH (like his Dad had).
You'll surely have fun with this one! :)

Did you modify the tractor for dual rear wheels? :cool:

yes, I made adjustments for the dual wheels and the weights on the front. The unfortunate part is I still have to put a driver in. James :wave:

Oh gee...you may want to rough in that driver before taking that cab too far!
Does the driver have to resemble a person in particular? (you can do it :) )
Whatcha using for a "go-by" for the driver?
I can't find DH's photo of the Little A. I do have an old pic of our then baby/toddler daughter sitting in the front end loader of an old Ford Jubilee (tankin' on her baa-baa) LOL. (the bucket was sitting on the ground and looked to her like a nice shady spot) :)
I finished my last painting and can't decide on what to do next. That is always a big hurdle for me. :rolleyes:

Your tractor has double tires, unlike the photo. Now the cabin looks too small somehow. or maybe just the thing that hangs over the tires. Also the second tire seems to be smaller on top than on the bottom. That looks kinda strange. I hope you take no offence.

On the photo the cabin is almost as high as the front (what is it) pipe. Your cabin is much lower. I don't want to be critical, but if it was mine, I would want it to look as good as possible. :)

no offense taken... There are a couple of changes that were made for customization to the client. For instance the dualies and the weights on the front. The tires and cab were made to look fatter and more masculine, the photo is also taken with a wide angle lens so I believe the false apperance of hight is misleading. Remember no one will be able to see the refrence when it's finished. Thanks for the input... James :wave:
