The Auhagen Plant Nursery [12351] could be used in a North American TT Scale farm, particularly a family farm:

How about o-rings? Ace hardware has a few. Also Home Depot.

And Harbor Freight has a box of them for 8 bucks.

Paint some treads?

Small HO scale tires could be used as big TT scale tires, or big N scale tire for small TT scale tires....DaveB

Thanks for the advice. I will look for tires in HO and N that hopefully will work for making models of my John Deere 1025R and of my 1959 Ford 641, and CaTT's 1950 Ford 8N.

Does anyone know of a maker of TT scale Alpacas or at least N scale Llamas?

I finally found a source of 1/120 Ford tractors that are not the larger type such as the Ertl 1/128 cab models:

The Fordson Model F (the first production-line Ford tractor, from the late 1910's through the late 1920's), is available as a two pack from Shapeways, designed by Walt's Trains and Things.

Here is a photo of the Fordson Model F, and of the 1/120 models of it:

Oh, thank you for that Fordson, it's great!

Fordson was one of the first Soviet tractors. Soviet Russia imported 25 000 Fordsons in 1922-1926, and the non-licensed copy of that tractor was produced in Russia, in my hometown, in Leningrad (now Saint-Petersburg) by Putilov plant (later Kirov plant). 36000 (or even 49000?) tractors were produced in 1924-1932.
It was very popular in the USSR in 1920s.

I plan on trying to get an actual Fordson Model F for my farm, if at least as a demonstration item.
