The steam-powered tractor I tried to reproduce in this mini-model was made by Harrison Machine Works in Belleville (Illinois) in 1882. It consists of a tractor and a trailer. Unfortunately only could find one picture of the original vehicle so I had to guess some of the details. Though I think the model is quite realistic.
The colours have been chosen to match the original vehicle, but they could be changed according to parts available in Lego stores; anyway most parts are available on the market in that colour.
Like other models I have submitted on Ideas this tractor is thought as being part of a "Historical Vehicles" theme that I would like Lego released one day.
The virtual model has been built with LDD (Extended Mode), the rendering was made with Bluerender software.
