Case 2366 Combine - By Andy Park

This stunning Case 2366 combine was kitbashed from the Wiking Claas Lexion. The rear end was chopped quite severely to represent the totally different style of the Case unit and the sides were changed quite a lot too. The cab canopy was shortened, filled and sanded, new glazing added from clear polycarb sheet heated with boiling water to try get the curve of the front screen (Andy notes, "Not a great result but it was pretty much a first effort."), and lights added from M.B.S.K. and seperate Wiking low ground pressure wheels & tyres added. A hole was cut in the roof and a "[grain] bin extension" scratched from styrene sheet was added and a wood screw was painted red with silver highlights to represent an auger.
