What’s a grown boy to do when he wants a 1/16-scale model of his favorite collectible farm tractor?

Why, just go buy one, right? Wrong!

Unless you want a newer model John Deere of an IH-Case, you will look long and hard to find what you want. If you want a model of an older antique tractor or a classic tractor, you can look on eBay or go to a toy show or, maybe, find an auction with an old toy. And most times those toys are just about shot.

But what do you do if you want a Huber tractor, for instance. You will be hard pressed to find one. None are being made today.

Long ago Hubley made a few copies of Huber steam traction engines and steam road rollers. Tootsie toys made a few copies of road rollers, but not 1/16 scale. In the 1920s, a German firm made and sold Huber steam road rollers, but finding one of those is tough and expensive. Besides, those are not farm tractors.
