As a younger kid,  like many played with 1/16th farm toys in the garden(80's).  As got older started collecting & building 1/64 farm toys(90's).  Last couple years started collecting anything that said "W" on them.  Mostly do that grew up around life size Super W6,  for some reason the 6 series toys is next to impossible to find.  Only have 3 of those,  back in the 90's had Teeswater Custom Toys build a SW6.  RPRU in Racine brought a W6,  trip this past June brought a SW6 t/a. 

Been looking for a cabinet to put them in,  found this one for $200 Cdn.  It had one glass shelf,  got local company to cut the rest.  Added the led lights to show the toy tractors up better.

In 1989 went to toy show with my Dad,  was just amazed by this tandem pair of W9's.  Never seen anything like it,  but it was $300 dollars.  I never asked him for it,  there was only 40 made for that show.  Couple years ago,  there was an older gentleman selling one of them for $150.  Couldn't get $ out fast enough to purchase it.  Neighbour of mine has one,  grew up with his daughters so I could look at it.  Also seen one in National farm toy museum.

The W6 was made by Pionner out eastern Minnesota I'm told.  The SW6 was made in Ontario by Bill Ireland of Teeswater Toys.  The SW6 t/a was made by Peter Freiheit of Red Wing MN.  Its has to been one of the nicest custom built toys I have ever seen.  I met Peter at his home this past June.  Was just in awe in see his work shop & the beautiful toys he has made.  I asked him if he would sell it,  he wasn't sure about it.  We chatted for couple hrs,  he decided it was going to go home.  I paid what he asked & I left happy with my buy.

Top shelf,  gave my Dad a project of making tandem WD9 in 1/64th scale.  Found a guy in southern SK that made up the SW6 & the W450 like we have in real life.

The 600/650.  The gassers were also made by the sister & brother inlaw of the Pioneer toys.  He had passed away,  then they took over trying to keep it going.  That's the story they told last year of the national farm toy show.  Never seen either of them,  so had to add to my collection.  The Diesels are from ertl.

If anybody has different info on any of who might of made some of the W4's,  W9 gassers would be great.  Also looking for people that has sales brochures,  W30,  600,  650,  etc.  Thanks for looking.

That's the 2nd 1/64 W4 I seen in the last 9 days.  There was a toy show last weekend in Regina,  saw it sitting in case with the 1/16 version.  I had no idea that even was made,  thanks confirming it.  Will have to see if that seller will sell it by itself next month when I see him at the next toy show.

Went national farm toy show auction on Saturday.  Brought this WD-40,  no box,  missing steering wheel.  Made of brass,  amazing detail.   Never had to pay before to go an auction.  Picked up steering wheel from Dakota toysIMG_1119.thumb.JPG.0e02b251cb55e786f61d0694844796b7.JPG

Went to Agri-trade,  its a 4 day farm show in Central Alberta.  My buddy Don has putting on toy show for quite a few years at the same time.  Was able to buy the 1/64th W4.  Now one is AB,  other one I know of is in ON.  I had to step up the plate & pay thou,  one of my bad habits is red toy tractors.

i'm still amazed how far some of these went, surprised no one has ever tried to remake them. I will be holding onto my set of tandem w-9s and will keep looking for others they all got to be surviving somewheres

 

wow them w-30s are sharp looking tractors I wouldn't mind one. do you mind me asking what one of those is worth

Found out they sold for $500 usd back in the early 90's.  I paid $275 usd for the W40.  The W30 had been sitting on ebay for close to 2yrs for $600.  I offered $500 & he took it.  I never have seen one for sale other than these 2,  so bit the bullet & brought them.  Figure did okay on the W40,  the W30 was so/so deal.

The led lights came from home depot,  I just wander around their lighting section.  They come in 1ft strips,  then hooked together for longer lights. 

While I was at the show in Dyersville,  brought a W4 & WD9.  The W4 is going to be turned into a OS4,  the WD9 is going to become a Rice WD9.  Hopefully they done around spring time.  Did find a Super W4 online,  it arrived in dozen pieces!  Sent it back,  builder hopes have it repaired by spring also.
