Kemper Champion 4500 [1/32]


The scale model manufacturers are, these last years, intensified their production and today we have a wide range of forage harvester in 1/32 scale. Unfortunately it doesn’t exist the most popular 6 rows header; the Kemper Champion 4500.


I want to make a header that can fit on many forage harvester, to be the most realist it would be a red machine (yellow version is for the John Deere forage harvester).

Because of the complexity of many parts and their redundancy, I will use the resin casting method.

So I made pieces to create silicon casting forms for these parts:

-Big drums -Big drums’s knifes -Little drums
-Lateral helicoil -External divider -Internal divider
-Lateral helicoil driving housing -Feeding drums -Feeding drums driving housing


Unfortunately I didn’t take photo during the building but here is a preview just before painting.

You can see that the hoods are made in styrene. The Kemper is foldable with 2 hydraulic cylinders. They are not in the same position than the real machine but I don’t have any space to put it. However they are essential to maintain the kemper in fold position.


I like the result, the header fits on most of my forage harvester; I’m going to paint it now!

And here is the final result.



It’s good but I’m not enjoying it, the model is coarse and some details is missing. I will restart many parts.

Here is the new version: 54 new pieces cast in resin, the rest will be made in styrene.
