Sometimes models ask me to motorize them. This is one of them. It seemed to have a lot of space, but it was not. Sometimes it was even needed to change the frame. But I succeeded in it and I hope you will too.

Text and photo's
One thing you should always realize yourself by motorizing models is where you should place the motors and the receivers in that way that the appearance doesn't change. Cablework and drivetrains are always difficult to make into this models. My idea was to put the XL-motor under the bonnet and to the M-motor in the space of the removed driving ring, but ideas can change.In the end, I built the M-motor under the bonnet and the XL-motor in the space of the driving ring.
In this photo, you see that M-motor. I chose for this position, because the structure of the front is very important, also for the pendelar suspension of the front axle, and that should be maintained.
This photo shows us the very short drivetrain of the tractor.
