Good model makers but artistic flair missing - the grille is completely wrong and would have been so easy to make correctly, also the scuttle is entirely the wrong shape. Wait until you see - UH will bring out a perfect 1:16 cropmaster diesel for a £40!! It won't be as unique or as valuable as a g&m model though!!!

I think you have to see the model in 'the flesh' to appreciate it better really. The majority of the tractors in this scale (and smaller) have up to now that UH have built have lots of 'faults', wrong decaling, wrong seats, chains hanging, gear levers the wrong way round, wrong exhausts and in some even the wrong wheels. But then, we can all find points of criticism. Still a cracking model though and the one I have is the prototype so the production run ones could, as stated in the ad's, have slight differences.

Exactly, what you have to remember is UH are model manufacturers not makers. Anyone with any captial can 3d scan an object scale it and make injection moulding tools to churn out models to the infinity mark. A fine example is the UH doe, theres thousands more models than there ever was tractors and the reason why UH are having trouble to make a return on the tooling.
Whereas G&M models are artisan models, built in the uk by british people with a definitive limited number, sure they are not 100% but if they were they would command a price nearer that of the real thing!
