Mr. McCormick's Reaper Binder - Part 5

Here is the reaper in the wheat field with the sun low on the horizon. The operator is making an adjustment to the machine as the horses wait patiently to complete their task before night falls.

Horses are by Langley Models and finely painted by Ed. The man is by Graham Farish, temporarily placed until a more fitting figure is found.

In the lower picture the operator is about to climb onto his seat. Note a bundle in the carrier and bunches previously dispatched from the binder. Women from the Women's National Land Services Corps (this is 1916 and the men folk are at war on the continent) are following to upend the bundles to form stooks to help dry the grain.

To Part 1
