That is amazing.  Both tractors look phenomenal.  I was struggling to locate one of these (let alone pay for it) for pulp/SA and all I needed was a box of cereal (and lots of glue and skill :) ).  I have the cereal and if I don't screw it up completely I'll follow up with what I managed.  Finding this was a awesome just for the wheels alone.  I think I could cobble together a nice looking flat cart or coach with those as well.

Glad you like the idea.Ive made planes ,fire engines ,cars,ships,and buildings just using these materials ,so it's a pretty easy method to use,(I just work on the philosophy that if it goes wrong so what,this stuff was only heading for the recycling bin anyway ;D)
I'd love to see what you come up with,and if you get stuck then feel free to pick my brains (such as they are)with a PM.
Mark.
