FarmVille

Is FarmVille still a thing? We hope not. Anyway, let’s move on from today’s title to this incredible pair of farming vehicles, each built by Eric Trax of Flickr. We’ve been awaiting for further details of these builds for a few days but as these don’t appear to be forthcoming and the Elf that found this is getting increasingly irate we’ll post this now…

These two almost unfathomably detailed Lego creations are a Holmer Terra Dos T3 and a Fendt Favorit 514c tractor complete with a Krampe Big Body 550 trailer in tow. Underneath the remarkably life-like exteriors Eric has engineered some quite spectacular realism, with a multitude of Power Functions components giving each model a plethora of working functionality.

As for what that functionality is you’ll have to wait until Eric posts further details, but until then you can see this incredible image above in closer detail via the link above. And if your Aunt is still inviting you to play FarmVille every few weeks, tell her to move on…

500 Tools

Lego Fendt 500 Vario Tractor

We round out a small-scale day here at The Lego Car Blog (don’t worry, we’ll be back soon with something much bigger) with this neat Fendt 500 Vario. Built by Flickr’s Stefan it’s an excellent recreation of the German manufacturer’s infinitely variable transmission tractor, but as with real tractors it’s what attached to it that’s cool.

Stefan has built a variety of tools for his Fendt, including a Polterschild & Forstseilwinde forest blade and winch (shown above) allowing the tractor to handle some hefty wood,* and what is apparently a Mulchfräse forestry mulcher** (below) for… er, mulching it?

There’s more to see of Stefan’s Fendt 500 Vario and the various implements it can deploy at his photostream – click the link above and get mulching!

Fendt F231 GT

This charming little tractor was spotted by the Elves in the LUGNuts group on Flickr. Stefan‘s Fendt F231 GT is the type of machine that is gradually vanishing from farms as people invest in bigger, heavier more capable vehicles. We couldn’t find out much about this particular model and wondered if its “GT” designation actually meant that it was aimed at the Grand Tour of Europe’s roads, given its 35PS/bhp, 3 cylinder engine. Click this link to see more of Stefan’s models and click this link to see more Fendt F231 photos, including one with a caravan in tow.
