Auto Credit Based on MediciAviation243's Hawk 2500 Engine CHALLENGE

Build something Agricultural! It can be an tug plane, crop duster, cattle herding helicopter, tractor, combine, old truck, pitchfork, whatever- as long as its fun to build and other folks will get a kick out of driving/using it. Replica or fictional exercise in creativity, doesn't matter as long as it is made by you (don't take other people stuff and give credit where due). XML modding allowed and encouraged. No necessary downloaded mods please.

All entrants upvoted,
1st place: 7 upvotes and spotlite.
2nd Place: 7 upvotes.
3rd Place 5 upvotes.
Entrants will be rated out of 10 for the following categories:
1: does it have a realistic Agricultural application?
2. Creativity (even if its a replica, creativity in build technique, etc)
3. Features and Functions (does it do stuff!)
4. Fun Factor.
Challenge will close 3 June 2017.
Thanks for your time, and i hope you have fun participating. Feel free to use any of the pieces here (sprayers on the plane spray a dirty white mist... but make jet noise). Engine Credit to @MediciAviation243.

[edit 14 May] please make entrants a successor for ease of tracking. Thank you.

    I'm sorry, but because I don't know which folder to put downloaded aircrafts in to make the files work , I didn't make it a successor of your plane. My design is a modified light aircraft with a sprayer rig.

    @Karma I'd prefer not to... there are other options for spraying and other options besides sprayers! if you really want to use it, go for it.
