    SMALL PARTS CASTING - IAN

    The casting room can get so dusty that devices such as this calculator has stopped working due to dust getting into them.

    Plastic coverings seem to help.

    PLATING CASTING - ANDY

    OPEN UP !!!!!!!

    This 'Rubber Oyster' isn't yielding any pearls, just some US 27 Hubs.

    Which is actually better for us because we're building some US 27's and they look nicer with wheels on them.

    JEALOUSY TIME !!!!!!

    This is the model that we produced for the Wessex Model and Toy Colletors Club.

    It's our LDM 75 Bentley in a silver finish.

    Only 125 were made and only available to the club.

    Maybe it's time you joined a collectors club, eh?

     

    Ok, you can start with the envy now.
