Ursus 912 Tractor

Recommended Posts

After few months of grey age, I have finished my another Model Team styled tractor.

It's a polish Ursus 912:
Everything began with 42054 set and its great tires. Unfortunatelly, so far LEGO did not decided to make these wheels in smaller diameter, so everything that could be built are largest 4x4 tractors on same wheels on both axles. Or... something smaller.

It started, as usual, from single picture. This one:

The biggest problem I had with designing this tractor was its colour. The real ones were painted in dark yellow, and closest match in LEGO colour palette was Bright Light Orange. And it lacks most of the typical, usefull parts. Let's say that building something within limited range of parts is not so  enjoyable ;)

This model was designed from scratch in LDraw:

Looking for perfect dimensions:

First sketches:

And after lots of iterations, the final version (which was slightly modified while being recreated with real bricks, becuase I have bought some great pieces like those wrenches)

Finished model can stand on a shelf and turn wheels (they are not connected to the steering wheel though). Not too many functions, but on the other hand, my first MT tractor had same fucntions.

By the way, that Renault was shown exactly 6 years ago.

Really nice tractor, looks exactly like the real life one. The Renault also looks great.

Are you planning on building some implements for this tractor?

I think you could do it. Perhaps a nice trailer or plough? 

I will consider that :)

You know it is beautiful, so I wont repeat that! :)
Just want to say that I like your model presentations even more because of the all blueprints, comparisons and WIP pictures.
