Fordson Super Dexta
The first pattern we release is for a Fordson tractor at a scale of 1:8. More specifically it’s a model of the 1960s Fordson Super Dexta. This model has a number of challenging components, for example its working steering rack. In order to build this model, you will need expert woodworking skills and it will definitely work in your favour if you have experience in making wooden models. Needing these skills should not discourage you as the documentation of this build is very thorough and consists of 1:1 2D plans as well as a 3D overview. Additionally, a SketchUp model is made available upon purchase which you can consult using the free to download corresponding software. Furthermore there is a blog about the build on the Lumberjocks forum.
