I was on the edge of my seat with excitement as I read your post. This is just what we all have been waiting for. The Junk Deere LA's are neat and the Cubs will be much the same if not better.

I am wondering if they thought of doing several with fast hitch and then making implements to interchange?

Ken, just an idea based on Butch"s request for "501". Could you manufacture each one with its on specific S/N maybe stamped on a plate that comes with the product. It might really boost the value when all our Grandkids are on the farmall cub forum many years in the future (and they will be). Just a thought.

There are no plans to serial number these models. There are a few models that have not been "reserved" or slated for production that could be used for a "special edition". They could be serial numbered.

The ones on the list include:
1947 CUB, 1947-49 CUB w/ "McCormick-Deering Farmall" decal, and the 460-560 styeld CUB and CUB Lo-Boy in yellow.

I prefer that they not be serial number for people like me, who just buy a bunch of them and tear them apart. I have scrubbed plenty of Ertl castings already, sending them to the scrap bin. It gets tricky to grind off the underslung muffler on one of those. one wrong move with the die grinder and you loose too much of the tractor!

btw, I just finished a prototype working hay baler in 1/16th scale. the bales are exactly in 1/16 scale, unlike the ones you see on ebay that are too big to be 14"x16"x42" small square. mine are so accurrate, they even fit in the chamber of Ertl balers.


not a great picture, but you get the idea.

Ken, anyone think of modifying the LA mower to make it into the Cub 22?
