TT Scale Farm Stuff

TT Scale Farm Stuff

Postby AstroGoat760 » Tue May 31, 2016 1:45 am

We are doing some pre-planning for our permanent layout, and we are trying to find if anybody made TT scale farm stuff, such as tractors and implements.

Farm buildings are easy enough to scratch build (not to mention that some things such as silos and some outbuildings in N and HO scales can easily be used in TT), and we have found a source of TT scale farm animals (especially goats).

The big thing is tractors and farm implements, as the tires are not as easy as road tires are to make.

Does anyone have any leads, or at least suggestions as how to "power" a TT scale farm?

I realized that I should have specified North American farm stuff, such as the Ford 8N tractor, the best selling tractor of all time in North America.

Wow, farm in TT would be very interesting!

First of all: you can use trucks made by RailTT for your farm. There are a lot of pickups and mid-size trucks available. Ford F100 pickup, Mack B, Ford F500 or F350, International K7, and Mack BX are available. Choose flat bed or stake bed body - I suppose it will be good for your farm.
Also Ford F1 pickup was available some time ago from Russian/Ukrainian company "ALi" - maybe our German friends still have some for sale.

As concerns tractors: first of all, there are some 1:128 scale tractors available as keychains. I know "Bruder Mini" toy serie, and maybe some other manufacturers.
But these are modern tractors.

I have German "Fendt" tractor, but there are some other brands availabe - John Deere, Massey Ferguson, etc.

Also you can try some German, Russian or Czech tractors.

German "RS14 Famulus" tractor - it seems to me that it looks like your Ford N - but maybe I'm wrong?

Model is made by Mehlhose-modelle.
I used it in my "Old West" scene:

Then check http://www.ttauta.cz/ website - they have a lot of different farm stuff.
For example - "Zetor" tractor:

You can use it "as is" or try to kitbash it - for example, into International Harvester - McCormick-Deering "Farmall" tractor

(There are some mistakes - for example, steering wheel is in wrong position, but I still think it can work)

Also you can try Soviet "Stalinets" S-80 or S-100 bulldozers (made by ttauta.cz) - they look like Caterpillars:

And also you can try HO-scale Kramer KL11 tractor made by Busch

Although it is HO-scale, but look here - it seems it looks just in place on TT-layout!

Also Russian (Soviet) T-74 and DT-75 tractors are available in TT, but I am not sure if they can work as American ones:

T-74:

(the right one)


DT-75:

Also some modern European tractors are available from Busch:

Also you can find some European harvesters and mowing machines on ttauta.cz: http://www.ttauta.cz/index2_eng.html (search "Fortschritt"). Maybe you can kitbash some of them into American ones:

And also some devices for your tractors - plough, etc.

(all these devices from TTAuta.cz are etched brass and/or resin kits)

Noch and Preiser are our main source of TT scale figures at this time, we plan on getting some agricultural workers from them, not to mention some animals.

We also have some N scale goats for the TT farm to represent the breeds of goats that make up the bulk of our farm: Nigerian Dwarf Goats and African Pygmy Goats, as they are a lot smaller than "normal" goats, even fully grown up.
