Past Toy Farmer Products Now out of Production
Look for These Great Models at Toy Shows and On-line
The 2003 National Farm Toy Show model is a 7020 John Deere 4wd. This model will be produced by Ertl. The 7020 was introduced by John Deere to farmers for spring 1971. The 7020 had the same basic turbocharged and intercooled 404-cu-in engine as the 4620 ; it put out a rated 146 hp at the pto. Available with duals or single tires he 7020 could be adjusted to work in row crops at 30 or 38 inches. Now you say didn't Ertl just release a 7520 and how is this model any different. The 1/64 7020 is indeed different. The big thing you will like is a cab with windows that also show weather stripping and there are no front fenders. The model also features the early John Deere 7020 graphics with a John Deere decal on the hood and the model number 7020 on the cab. The shelf 7520 has the latter style decal with 7520 and John Deere printed on the hood decal and the leaping deer on the cab. 1/32 will be the new scale instead of 1/16 for the NFTS. The 1/32 model offers excellent detail with a nice looking windowed cab and a working 3pt hitch.

Big Bud 16-747
In November 2001 Toy Farmer announced its plans to produce a 1/32 replica of the giant Big Bud 16V-747. The 16V-747 model will coincide with the celebration of the magazines 25th year of service to toy collectors. Interestingly, the 16V-747 rolled out of Big Buds manufacturing facility in January 1978, the same month and year Toy Farmer issue #1 came of the press for the first time. Toy Farmer Magazine plans on having order forms delivered directly to its subscribers in January, an ordering period up until April, with delivery in June. Toy Farmer will offer two 1/32 versions: 1. Original Factory production Replica with original graphics and paint scheme with 760 HP designation. ---- This is the version in the photo. 2. Modern Field replica with modernized graphics and paint scheme with 900 HP designation as reworked by the Williams Brothers (also has Chrome stacks). These will be high quality replicas - in die-cast metal. The tractor will include tilt-up hood, tilt-up cab, articulating frame, and great detail throughout. The tires have been specially tooled and are exact replicas of the originals (only 8 were ever made). The quantity produced will be determined by the quantity ordered before the April deadline. These models are produced by Die-Cast Promotions.
Just How Big is the 16V-747?
In real life full scale the tractor is 28.5' long, 20.9' wide, and 14' high (as documented in Peter Simpson's "Ultimate Tractor Power" book).
Figuring out its scaled size is pretty easy with a calculator, and can be accomplished in two steps.
1) In this case divide the dimensions by 32 (because it is 1:32 scale) and you will get .89' long, .51' wide, and .44' high.
2) Then multiply the values by 12 to get scaled inches. The dimensions should be 10.7" long, 7.8" wide, and 5.3" high.
