TIN PLATE

tp001-group.jpg

Back in 2013 on a visit to China we discovered a small workshop making all kinds of all-metal, tinplate vehicles and other models...One of the models we saw was a little tram almost identical to the ones that still run on the streets of Hong Kong. And so, we gave them a design of an old turn-of-the-century Hong Kong tram and asked them to make a few samples...This they did and we sold them immediately. We produced some more and they also quickly sold out.

Among their other models were some Chinese Army trucks and cars. Why not, we suggested to the workshop, try a few other military models and gave them the famous WW2 GMC “Deuce and a Half”. Well, now we’ve got the first small batch of them and I think they’re great!

In fairness these models will not be for every collector...they lack some of the detail of our mixed media fighting vehicles – No glass in the windows for instance. BUTthey’re tough, sturdy and have a unique and original style all of their own that I truly believe works well with our other models and figures. We only have a limited number so if you’re interested...grab ‘em while you can!
