New eBay Auctions up!

I have put up 5 new eBay auctions including a Farm Show 8120, a 7488, a 8120 Black Knight, an 8630 that has been customized, and a custom 4650 with loader.

Each of these custom tractors has been displayed and never played with, and are in excellent condition. The proceeds from these auctions will be used for my traveling this fall.

Check back over the next 2 weeks because I will be adding more auctions.

Case IH 8120 Black Knight

This is an 8120 Farm Show edition that was disassembled, primered, and painted black. Case used to make "Black Knight" demonstrator models when they released new tractors so I thought it would be interesting to create a Black Knight combine. 8120 Black Knight decals were created and added for extra detail.
You can see the extra Black Knight logo on the feeder-housing of the combine.
Here is the 8120 Farm Show Edition compared to the 8120 Black Knight.

If you have any questions or comments please email me.

Case IH 8120 Farm Show Edition

This years Case IH Farm Show Edition is the 8120 combine. Almost every year Case IH produces a special model for the fall farm show. Usually its a new model that Case IH wants to promote.

This combine features clear cab glass, detailed railings and turn signals, and a realistic unloading auger.

This is the second combine that Case IH has released. In 2003 the Fall farm show edition was an 8010. At that time Case IH didn't have their current marketing deal in place and limited the production to 5,000 units. This years model was not limited in production and therefore will not be as collectible in the future.

Overall for the price this is an excellent model. It is the best way to get detailed handrails for a great price.
