Badge colour?

Post by TEF20IRL » Sun Nov 24, 2019 7:59 pm

Just wondering. What's the "correct" bonnet badge for a TEF?

I see some tractors with blue badges and most with chrome or raw metal badges

Humbrol model paint available in hobby shops ' Duck Egg Blue ' is an exact match to the original Ferguson blue badge background .

So are all badges supposed to be blue?

Front badge has a blue background , side badges differed according to the style and sometimes the country in which they were sold . Some dealers added their own variations , tractors sold in New Zealand often had a blue band painted around the bonnet .
