No, it is a Claas Tractor - a German brand.

microbuss: Duetz owned Allis Chalmers - not sure if they still do or not.

The MF factory for the Europe is in France non ?

EDIT :

Welcome to our Beauvais plant, the most modern tractor production centre in France. Over 915.000 tractors have been built here and nearly 80% of production is exported to over 60 different countries world-wide.

to me, the tractors look like plastic blobs, not a lot of detail or crispness to the model, look rather bulky and plane

I wish this set was available in the usa. Are they a 1/64/ertl scale or a matchbox/1/87 scale.

the size tends more towards Matchbox ...I would assume they are kind of 1/72ish... :)

to me the detail between the two sets is not the same, the MB set is more defined, more crisp if you will, with better lines

:rolleyes2: ...the detail is not the same?

Should it?

The question was, how the scale is.

Niels - know I asked this in the Majorette tread but will ask here as well - how do the Majorette tractors compare to the Siku and Norev farm tractors?
