A rather good red and blue model Garden Tractor, built from a 1930s Märklin-Metallbaukasten construction set.

The source design

The tractor is modelled on a real garden tractor manufactured by Case, and nicknamed "Elvis" by its owner.

The model was created in 2016 for the refit and redesign of the museum's "Metal Construction Sets" display cabinet.
