They say that all men are still just big kids at heart! And when it comes to machinery models, nothing could be truer. So, whether you are shopping for your children, husband, or other special “kid” in your life, a machinery model will delight men of all ages.
Kids love to play with model cars, trucks, diggers, and tractors. It is part of growing up! From those first Dinky toys to elaborate scale models that faithfully replicate iconic vehicles and machines, it is a niche that delights kids and adults alike.
So, whether you are shopping for a youngster, or just someone young at heart, here are some of the most popular brands and machinery models that are guaranteed to bring a smile to your loved one’s face this Christmas.
Tractors are always incredibly popular models. As youngsters, there is something special about setting up a play farm with animals and vehicles, but even as adults, the love of farm machinery is still often present.
If your loved one is still fascinated with farm machinery, then delight them with a highly detailed tractor model. A Tractor model like the Britain Massey Ferguson 6613 Tractor is a great example of the intricacy and detail included in modern models.
Included in this model are:
- Working cab and headlights
- Realistic reversing and engine sounds
- Removable cab
- Superbly detailed engine
Combine Harvester Models
Staying with the theme of farm machinery is that favourite of kids of all ages – the combine harvester.
Again, the detail included in many models is incredible. Take the Siku Lexion 770 Harvester model, for instance. The attention to detail and working features in this model include:
- Height adjustable cutting unit
- Authentic look and design
- Superb and intricate detail
- Moving filler pipes and corn tank doors that open
Truck and Dumper Truck Models
If you love machinery, then you will love truck and dumper truck models. The ageless attraction of “big machinery” is something that stays with many people throughout their life.
Whether you are shopping for the kid or the big kid in your life, they will have endless fun with an intricate model like the Bruder Volvo A60H Dumper truck model.
This model is a 1:16 scale replica of one of the true workhorses of the construction industry. Included in this superbly detailed model is:
- Fully functional tipping mechanism
- Balloon tyres
- Articulated steering capable of working off-road
- Includes room for a Bruder figure in the cab
Farmyard Accessories Models
The realism of a toy farmyard can be greatly enhanced with scale models of real farmyard machinery. The Britains range of accessories is a prime example of the level of detail to be found in quality modern models.
Some examples of this range include the 1:32 scale Fleming Double Bale Lifter and the incredibly detailed NC Slurry Tanker. These are both compatible with other 1:32 scale replica farm vehicles, including the outstanding Britains Maxxum 150 Tractor.
