Looking forward to the finished product. You gonna do each one a different color or leave the natural wood for all?

Looking good so far. Keep up the great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Wow 15 tractors. Take it you sell them? Do you at least keep one for yourself?

Looking great!!! A lot of people don't realize how much work these really are. Nicely done.
