Really like the look of the tractor.Love twin steers,probably my favourite truck!Totally into British eight wheel tippers,but fascinated by other countries twin steers,like your pics,U.S versions,and others!
Just don't like 'Chinese six',twin steer with one drive axle,yuck!

I agree,it could be too much of one colour.The real ones I have seen,are white.So,depending on what colour paint you have,they should be a different colour to the chassis.Loving the functionality!Smile
