|Right out of the box. I can't help thinking it is a fine model for the money spent.|
My new Ferguson is a Schuco 1:18 model which I aqcuired from ebay, making quite a good deal for 36 €. Having seen the model go for prices as high as 160 € I'm considering it worth the trouble creating a ebay-account.
The model is a quite an accurate representation of a Ferguson TE20 with low mounted exhaust. All the parts are there, placed in the correct locations. The wheels turn and the hood can be tilted to expose a detailed engine, petrol tank, radiator and battery.
|Right side view of the Ferguson. There is some detail painting to be done, particularly the exhaust pipe will need some attention.|
|Hood tilted to show petrol tank, engine and radiator.|
|This rear view shows some of the downsides of die cast and pre-assembled models: gaps I would have filled and sanded on any model I built myself are quite visible.|
