Looks like a fun project! 
What are you thinking of using for the tires?  That would stump me!

At Cabin Fever Cliff Romich displayed a model of a Lanz Bulldog that was a kit ordered from Europe.  The wheels on his model didn't have tires.

I assume that yours is also hot tube ignition.

Hi everyone, at work it has been so busy that I haven't had time to do just some small parts.
On Saturday to Latvia to see Speedway competitions and back on Monday.

An interesting model  :) Tyres are available in various sizes. Are you intending to go hot bulb? Someone managed a version using an automotive diesel glowplug.
Best regards

Roger
