You certainly keep busy with these dinky toys. Love the work and the colors too. Thanks for showing.

Back from 2 weeks away in sunny Menorca...
before I start back with the customs I need to

tidy... clear... straighten up and organize the
work space and try to keep things in order... (for a while any way)... I think
my work space is just a mirror of what's in my head... a mass of ideas with 20
odd things going on at once with another 50 odd part built in progress code
3's... (some of which I know will never be finished)

 
here's a few more from August 2012

I know I'm repeating myself, but your code 3s are really stunning - they look like genuine vintage creations that might as well have been made "if only..."


Could you, perhaps, list the base models used for your conversions? It would be a lot easier to look them up and compare.

Dinky Riley, Dinky Jag? not sure about the tanker. Dinky Chevy El Camino and an oldsmobile by dinky, 1962?.

Lovely work all of them, that Foden Steamer is brilliant. I've done a fair few recovery conversions of them in the past, but for some reason never thought to do one in a works livery! Hats off to you! Elijah

You definitely do a terrific custom builds and that Rolls looks like it might be a winner.

Sterling work there. Perhaps a few pics in 'pictures of your workshop' somewhere on here. I've scrapped my under the stairs workspace as it was too dark even with lighting.
Cheers,Frame.

Well done, love the Rotinoff !

I think that Batmobile Criterion is Superior creation and Dinky should have thought of it years ago.

Re: My Recent Code 3 Customs 8 years ago #75

Your work is really magnificent as always and your sense of humor shines through... the Rolls Royce camper and now the Batmobile hearse... and wasn't it you who also made a Reliant Robin in Batman-livery with Robin at the wheel some time ago?
