I found this resin kit on Ebay. It is a copy of 1/50 scale Conrad IH 5600i model and I think the caster used a cement mixer as water tanks are included for the side of the frame. The frame is straight and the tires are resin and seem to be true round. I am not sure how I will build it , a tractor maybe.

There is clear plastic, have to drill rear axles through and drill cab for exhaust stack.

Kind of a cool novelty but don't see how you will like it when you are used to the much nicer DieCast.

Interesting find Roy, have not seen this one before. I wonder if they would consider selling any of the parts separately, I could always use an extra set of those mirrors for my Conrad trucks.

Only 1 mirror and does not look that good, I have a set of Conrad mirrors to use. I asked the seller if he had anymore like this or if he knew where to get more and he advised that he did not.
The kit came in a big baggie no ther inforamtion but I will keep looking.
The rear axles appear to be case into the frame, the front axle is very simuliar to the ones Conrad uses today.

That is so strange Roy. You got to wonder why someone would go to the trouble of casting that when they could buy a diecast metal one for less than $100.00, full assembled and painted. How much did you pay? Craig
