Collecting Convenience

I think we would all concede that it's easier to collect 1/16, 1/32, and 1/64 scale models as opposed to the real machinery! The race to provide quality and affordable tractors to small and medium sized family farms has provided collectors with several beautifully designed tractors from many different manufacturers. Classic stylings from IH to Minneapolis-Moline to Massey Harris emerged and the trademark colors of each brand were established and advertised to the masses during the tractor boom of the 1940's and 50's. Thanks to the marketing of these iconic brands, any farmer can now look across his neighbors field, see the color of the tractor, and have a pretty good idea about what equipment his neighbor is using.

The hobby market has also benefitted from this design and marketing gold mine, getting to see scale models of some ground breaking machines and create collections of our favorite farm equipment, all through the convenience of scale models. has always been interested in providing the best possible diecast farm toys for our customers and the story remains the same today.
