Case 65 HP 1/16 Scale Model
(Page 3 of 3)
The color scheme on my model is probably not accurate, but it looks good. The smoke box and stack, boiler and steam dome, fire box, platform, water tank and coal bunkers, are all matte black, as are the steps and most of the piping and valves. The wheels, front axle, and drive gears and shields are red. The feedwater heater, engine, governor, valve gear, geared pump, flywheel, quadrant shelf and levers are green. The whistles and associated pipes are a gold color to simulate brass. There is a Case decal on the smoke box door, the feedwater heater, the cylinder front, and the rear of the right coal bunker. On the rear of the other bunker is the big J.I. Case Threshing Machine Co. decal, and there's red and white striping on the water tank and both bunkers. A couple of eagle on the globe decals, and, to simulate the brass builder's plate, a tiny, oval gold decal on the right front of the smoke box add the finishing touch. A removable, green metal canopy is provided.
I guess I got a little carried away in describing the Case 65 hp model, but it really is great. If you get a chance to examine one of Ertl's Millennium Farm Classic models, I think you'll be as impressed as I am. I can't wait to see what they'll choose for the next offering. FC
