Dinky tinplate Filling Station
With prices for these lovely pre-war toys starting at several hundred pounds for a tatty example, I decided to combine the wonders computing with a bit of amateur tinsmithing. A few weeks ago, this was a cooking oil drum and a few photographs. By enlarging the photos to actual size, then sticking them to the carefully marked out, cut and folded and painted tin sheet, I ended up with this result, a lot cheaper than an original!
