International Toy Restorations Let’s See Them.


Recommended Posts

I would like to see your International Toy Restorations you’ve done or are working on. I’ll start us off with this Ertl 1/16 International Tractor I did as a 706.

You do nice work. My grandparents have one of those tractors but they were originally a 544. It’s in pretty rough shape which is why I think it would be great to restore. But the rear left axle housing is broke off from the rear end so I don’t know if that can be repaired well enough to hold.

I have fixed broken axle housings with steel filler epoxy.

Thanks for the complement. I like mixing this casing up with different model numbers but that’s what it originally was based on the 544.

Not an International truck I guess but I did this one for my son a couple years ago for Christmas. Complete with walnut bed, dual stacks, custom welded trailer hitch, under bed boxes, and headache rack.

Slightly customized 1086 I did because Grandpas had white dual wheels when purchased new. That is in front of the barn I built for little guy this past winter.

Here’s a 1/32 side discharge Manure spreader I Retroed back to a IH a couple years ago. Still have very little to finish yet. 7064B3C0-7210-4A53-895F-DF00D2DC467C.jpeg.b41e0c51386a25b9b2b2408b4f9bc0c8.jpegE40F795A-7F08-441D-BB07-1BAA55C3384B.jpeg.b0135f4a8b817b839f1b2e0b58186673.jpegA2C079BF-90AC-44AE-97A5-881140FE1F8F.jpeg.46553bf042eed010ae28d2fc2c54b18c.jpeg9D9A9FE2-3C90-49E0-8260-0048BE11D51A.jpeg.43529082d7072db7bbdb74c1d3de53b0.jpegCD6053BF-47BF-4BFF-9893-A73038919CF6.jpeg.08434c5a22e01a8d474134002b124dc1.jpegC9EE815F-9878-4AED-9718-0D0C16AFA478.jpeg.fa7cc3862a4c59ce94ad9751b802c1d3.jpeg7257B7B6-0650-41CB-BC39-04164C727256.jpeg.36bf07d1bfa2f1425a1a6387ceed5dee.jpeg40B05AE3-76B3-4736-9BDA-7637C577E9CB.jpeg.df0f140e2cf9b02190b5d9376712f386.jpeg7422012C-D730-4D24-8F02-AA2F4B834945.jpeg.3a0966907f563fe5d0113b398e94b841.jpeg68F82BAF-F0F2-41B7-8DC4-9919ED9D4E82.jpeg.95ab5021f79678d2fa35e3bd654c47f6.jpegD763081C-BC4A-4D31-AB15-7A922570A0FD.jpeg.1bd5f38f8065b0dbcea37917789c951c.jpegEBB26CC2-82EC-474E-BD9A-21F332971B77.jpeg.6b4e17f2d9ac0e38beae26454b71a0c7.jpeg14A22BD1-9262-4411-9F05-236943527FBA.jpeg.b97c88bb16740984760c95116ed6bc2e.jpeg

@harvester850 love the 1/16, 686. I’ve been hoping they would use the hydro 70 base and make one for sale. That is the first one I’ve ever seen. Looks nice!  I have always kept an eye out for one to match my real 686. Thanks for sharing

A friend had this Ertl Precision 1206, or l should say a box full of 1206 precision parts. We done a little horse tradin' and he built this 1206 for me out of some of the spare parts. l printed then added the decals on the IH oil filters. lf any of you are on Facebook and interested in restored and customized toy tractors, go to the Pirate Farm Toys page. lf l did it right  here is a link to it:    https://www.facebook.com/groups/227118887759457

I noticed some of your creativity had come from the larger scale models that are in the fields.  Good work and great attention to details.....

Thanks for sharing.

Here’s an old ERTL IH 1256 I bought in a garage sale for 1.00 back around 2013.
It was rode hard and put away wet lol. It had the ice cream box cab on it. 

When I went to restore it, I decided to remove the cab and make it an open station tractor with fenders and make it a 1456. 

I stripped the paint, repainted it, used new tires and decals.
