This project consists in a small reproduction of the "Locomobile", a steam-engine tractor for agricultural purposes, produced in 1906 by the Italian Company "Orsi Pietro & figlio". The Locomobile was the first piece of a successful production of tractors and agricultural machines that lasted until 1964.
I chose a "minimalist" style to keep the number of parts under 100. Though the build looks quite faithful to the original. The virtual model has been built in LDD Extended mode, so many parts have never been produced in that colour until now do not exist in Lego world in that colour.
Like another former project of mine, the model is thought as part of a new Lego theme about mini collectable antique or vintage vehicles. I also would like to add a base with a printed tile reporting the name of the model, like in "Architecture" theme.
