I am not that serious, although I do watch some of JangBricks' youtube video's from afar while my son is watching them, usually while I cook supper or breakfast.

I just finished lunch, going to work on the feed grinder and then chop bedding................I am a salt and pepper headed over-weight old fart and the only checking out I am doing is from here and checking into the throne to get rid of this greasey lunch that is sliding like mud in the rain off a hillside in CA state.  I will check in on this thread tonight.:lol:

it is a  Claas ARION 460 PANORAMIC and it was made of 800,000 lego bricks. "The mammoth task of construction was undertaken by the only certified Lego builder in France, from the company Sarl ERC Briques, and took 3,500 working hours." "The 3.5t CLAAS Lego tractor is an absolute gem and has been named 'TractoBrick'. It was given its place of honour in the museum's great machine hall, next to almost a dozen other genuine tractors depicting the history of the motorisation of agriculture."

I was a huge lego fan as a kid.  Those pictured by Cattech were called "Expert Builders" I believe when I was a kid.  I had a lot of those.

I still like them but unfortunately my son grew out of them so I lost my excuse to play with them.

Hey I can flood this tread with lego pics! Loved legos when I was younger. Then realized I could build things all INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER with just looking at pics of the real thing. This timeframe was early 2012 through late 2016. From the start of that I never again used directions and made my own IH dealership that grew to nearly 70 pieces and mainly symbolized an IH dealer of the 1970’s but I build IH pieces from the 1831 Reaper to the 1985 5488. 

To start the dealer building I still have built today. From 2012 to 2016 I entered a display in the county fair the top paper you see was my last from 2016 it was a display of the 4100 with a 700 plow, a 1206 with a #55 chisel plow, and a 656 with a fully mounted #10 grain drill. It was modeled as a 1965 introduction of the three tractors and the implements that matched them at the time. The other is from Feb. 1st, 2014 when I did the introduction of the 40th anniversary of the 5 millionth tractor on Feb. 1st. 1974. The banner is made just like the real one 40 years prior and I drove the tractor thru the banner when I presented it to my parents then. I loved presenting my products!

This is just a list I though I would add to show all of what I built over the years. The “second generation” I called it started in late 2015 I think.

I didn’t find every year but this is most of the displays I had a county fair. The first is from 2012 of a 4166 an IH grain drill and air seeder (not totally realistic I know) This was my first lego display, second year of 4-H and I got grand champion in open class! The next is a 1480, an IH grin truck, and 1977 Scout II. Third from 2015 is an IH promo film influenced display from 1964 of the 806 and 550 steerable plow and vs. the JD 4020

So today after I saw this topic, I dug out the equipment I had left. As you can see I had to put some back together, it took a while going off of memory.

Back row is a 6788 and 800 early riser planter, 1206 and 55 chisel plow, an 806, then a 656 and fully mounted #10 grain drill mentioned in above post. 

Bottom row is the 1985 5488, a 2504 industrial, a 1948 CUB w/woods belly mower ( a version of the tractor I have), then a 544 with a mount o matic loader, finally a 340 with a droit 4 in 1 bucket.

This is the IH sign like what would be out by the road at a real dealer, then a 1480, 375 swather, push mower, the original CC, and a chest freezer.

There is a theme park in Florida called Lego Land.  We took on son there several years back when my had a work event in Orlando.  

On a side note I know a guy who buys Lego pieces everywhere he can and then resells them once he builds them and adds any missing pieces.  He enjoys doing it and makes a few dollars at it.
