Thanks Jeff - truth be told, this model is a bit plasticy and cheap feeling compared to typical Minichamps stuff. I wouldn't pay the asking price for it again, but it looks good, it's different, and I'm glad to have it in my collection.
I'm having a hard time getting the Schuco tractors here, but they're on my list. Schuco has a nice range in 1:43 - I hope more will be released in 1:18. I may have to put in an order to Modelissimo in the new year. Incidentally, I like how Modelissimo has them listed on their site - "Farmer Cars". Now, bring on some Lambo Farmer Cars! :giggle
