Thanks to @Vinylguy and @ACman for the creation and release of this great looking set of decals. Now Minnesota will have one and maybe even two 520 Wheel-a-matics.  Terry let me know how I can order a set then maybe I can be sent with the toy tractor you are working on .  Thanks Again for all you do :text-thankyoublue:

I'm thinking maybe a 1/16 scale 520h made from a White Field boss toy tractor?

Had some time this week to open up the differential and fix the leak, put in new seals. Thought I would wet sand the tins, but no:angry-banghead: had to blast some of them. Put some primer on may paint later this week. Need to get with @Vinylguy and get some decals ordered.

Got the differential back together, painted the tins. Now on to the loader.

Got back to it today, subframe almost done. Pretty much an exact copy of a Wheel Horse subframe.

Got the loader bracing done today. Went to see @wheelhorseman to punch some holes and bend some steel. Welded it up today. Pump brackets next. Pump is done.

Nice...clamp on forks on the bucket work for ya or too much weight out front.? Always thought some kind of quick attach setup like a skid steer for bucket and forks??? Bring the weight closer back??
