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 picsE5BC82D0-1BDE-4399-96B9-72854FBF24E1.jpegCC723F25-35BE-45AA-914F-434240D09A81.jpeg153D768F-0D96-410F-B6AB-D0CB28C77A34.jpegBC4C3525-F451-4ECB-80FA-D4F24E9675C2.jpeg725CA7AD-1EDD-4E8B-9D05-0036DDCB6F93.jpeg

I finally got the decals after several months waiting. Put them on and started making a drive line and carrier bearing

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 H.

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. :thumb2: Rick H.

Your welcome Rick. I loved working on local farms when I was younger I learned a lot. My spreader was a little guy I kick myself for selling it
