Any of the Spec cast models depending on what style of cub you like.

Paul:

I am fond of the Ertl's and they are quite affordable but the detail is not all that impressive. The Spec Cast are more detailed but are also a lot more expensive. What I do like about the Spec Cast is the implements that usually go with many of the models. And those are quite impressive, quite detailed and that makes the price very reasonable.

I been buying most of the ertle cub 1/16 scale die cast models. I been buying the discontinued farmall letter and number tractors and some with attachments new in the box. I just picked up a backhoe attachment.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
