Default Twin City 60-90 Dimensions and Measurements

Hello,

Would any of you know where I could find some basic dimensions for a Twin City 60-90? Length, height, width, wheelbase, wheel sizes, etc., and/or any other critical dimensions would be very helpful. I can find some specification type information, but very little which references it's size. I am wanting to build a scale model of that impressive tractor, so this information would be extremely valuable.


Thanks!!!

Dan

Can't help you with the dimensions, but I'm already looking forward to seeing the upcoming progress reports on the buildup when you get started on it.

The work you've shown in the 27-44 twin city thread is pretty impressive.

If you havent already seen it, take a look at these two model 60-90s on e-bay.

http://ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=twin+city+tractor

They are a bit crude, but also cute given its humble beginings by an enthusiast much like yourself. These are poured castings...I see you do it a bit different.
Any chance you would make more than one?
I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with
Tony

Gene, I wish I could, and I might. Since its on Labor Day time frame... It could be doable. Its a two day trip from WY. I do have a friend in Milaca and it would be cool to see him again.

Tony! Thanks for the suggestions! I took a good look at the sand cast TC's and shook my head. Nothing wrong with them or the neato factor of having a model 60-90 out there, but in order to customize it, all I would really be able to use are the front wheels.... Pricey for just that.

I really want to scratch build the entire model starting with the engine. May CNC some components, but I really hate programming G code!!!

Quinter KS is a couple hundred miles closer. You could probably get in to see one in the process of being put together there.
