        Jim I noticed that as well about TE's but they are cool and don't need a track to run on. And the 2" model could plow your drive with the right set up. And those lorries wow.

        Have to try and make it to some of the engine shows this year.

            Cole's has 1" & 2" scale Case castings. They make up imto beautiful models but they are not inexpensive. You could purchase them in subsets to spread out the cost, I don't know if that is still the case.

            There are several sources of castings in the UK.
