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

Some of your dimensions are picking up on the tangency points of the rounded corners instead of the line you intended to dimension. Especially in the lower right view.--Brian
