Rick you are most probably right and I do apologize for jumping the gun on the Fordson.
Coming from a farming community the smooth wheels didn't look right to me as there is no way it could have pulled even a 2-bottom plow without losing traction.
Most of the old Fordson's I have seen have had steel wheels with steel cleats or lugs.
With that being said I have never seen one set up for industrial use which is what I would think this particular design was based on.

HSL I believe that pneumatic tires were introduced in the early 1930's and alot of the tractors with steel wheels were converted to rubber tires.

Gosh gang I would say easily a couple of tears on this diorama . Working in 1-48th scale is advantagous as I was at a local hobby shop today talking H O or 1-48th with the manager . Seems that a company now has Gulf , Sunoco , Clark , and Sinclair signs that light up using two A A batteries and look like neon signs !Theres also a Dr Pepper sign too. Im tolsd that the company , Model Power also sells a kit to possibly do your own sign . Now these signs arent exactly cheap . They run about 50.00 plus tax. They come with a skeletom frame to make a rooftop bill board .
I thought I was being unique as I want to add one of Dick Bennett's decals as a Bill board sign to my Amoco station ....... No , I got beat by somebody over in Asia building these electronic gadgets ! Ed Shaver
