I’m Retroing this old Ertl 1/32 Case IH back to a International Harvester one with some Custom upgrades as I go along. I don’t know if International had these are not but is a fun Custom build anyway. Enjoy the pics
Looks the business Lee, will it turn when the tractor moves forward, or is that a little unrealistic to expect from an Ertl farm implement? It would be fun to watch, if you filled the hopper with styrafoam balls....my Grand dad used to sing a little ditty while spreading manure, went like this........"Oh, the wind blew and the Sh*t flew and the farmer hauled another load away"!

Rick it originally was battery-operated with a special tractor you have to hook to it but this is just gonna be a static display. I used to have a real nice International McCormick manure spreader just the right size for my Hobby Farm I wish I never got rid of it.
My Grand dad's was a rear discharge IH and some of my fondest memories were riding on the grey Ford tractor, with my older brother, through the orchard with that contraption slinging chicken sh*t everywhere!! I was 7 yrs. old and I remember it like yesterday. Thanks for taking me Back Lee. Rick H.
