Here are the models contained in the 8841 set. It's unfinished because some parts (particularly in the 8841+8700 model) are missing or unofficial. Includes flexible parts modeled with LSynth, could change that in the future.

8841+8700 attached in reply
6th submodel of 8841
Ignacio, could you list the missing parts?
Well, I just got a real copy of this nice set a couple of days before ;-)
How did you bent the 8 long axle for the rollover cage? It looks really good so far.
But IMHO there is a second rear attachment for the tractor for the real model, isn't it?

I have it since my childhood. Smile

With LSynth, the code's in the file (at the end), see here too:

For the exact angles, I made the calculations assuming all 3 axles would have the same curvature radius, and only the parts outside the grey pieces would be bent. (Well, not calculations, but drew it in GeoGebra to get the numbers.)

Yes, both are included in the model, just change the "Parallel plough" line to "Line plough".
It might be obvious for some people, But what is ls40a.dat and ls41a.dat?

Why can't I find these files files in the download section of Ldraw.org?
Are the files at Holly-Wood.it official or unofficial?
Are they certified or not?
You can get them from JC-Tchang website, here.
Now I heatfully agree that the status of LSynth parts should be clarified!!!
As all that parts are not in our library, they has to be added to each model they are used in!
When LDCad adds the flexible parts support, I hope that will be solved. For the moment, the models are still "unfinished" Smile
I agree with Michael.
MPDs must be self-contained, i.e.,
all files which are not official at the time of its publication must be contained inside the file,
and this includes lsynth-parts.
