Re: Then and now

I wish! I haven't officially worked on a farm for over thirty years, but I can be found in greasy, wet, and rusty crap whenever the oportunity asises. It has a 6x3 trans, button shifed on a joystick.

Re: Then and now

I bought my 110 camera soon after starting work. It went through an aprenticeship, 3 years of college, 3 years of contracting, and on until I bought a digital camera around 2005. I still have it though.
The front links on the 7700 were for a flexicoil packer. From what I remember not very successful.

Re: UK no. plates

Thanks guys, yes the modelling forums are well worth a look. Ah, er... wrong sort of modelling. Ahem. To get the correct proportions (back to number plates!), I did think about taking a picture of the actual plate and re-sizing it but to get it to print anywhere close looks like it could be more luc...

UK no. plates

I'm a bit of an anorak when it comes to collecting models of vehicles I've owned and I would like them to have the correct number plates. Does anyone know if there is a website that allows you to print scale number plates with your reg no. on? What I'm thinking is 'Select Country-Select Scale-Type N...

Re: Tractor World Newbury 2017

I remembered it was this weekend, and that's where it all went wrong... Barrelled off down the M4, left sunglasses at home. Rats. Never mind, press on. Hmm, no reading glasses either. Oh well, I'm sure I can manage. Got directed to the farthest row in the carpark, car behind me gets front row in the...
