Large and small bin made from brass and soldered together, the larger one will have wheels added later.

Hi Msea,
Nice to see your keeping busy.
Like the Piaggio Van, very nice'.
I like red, but happy with blue.
Cheers,
Bigkev

The only car that should be red is a Ferrari -- like the one you drive - hohoho
Just think about the amount of models that will get finished over the next few weeks !!!!!!

See Dave I can read - hohoho - found this idea in the Fine Scale Modeler Damaged issue Spring 2020.
My brass bin looks OK but not like the old metal dustbins -- this one is from the metal tube of Tomato Puree ( thanks for the idea of using this Howard ) and I can make the corrugated stripes in the body of the bin.

Lovely, you could use thicker aluminium foil.

Piaggio has now had a coat of hull red and rust then an overcoat of hairspray.  When it is all dry will give it a coat of Vallejio No67 sky blue.

Reminds me of that song,
'3 wheels on my wagon, and I'm still rolling along'
Nice to see your creative skills are just the same in this difficult time, and your 'still modelling along...'
Cheers,

Yes, I echo that.
Very, strange times at moment.
Hunker down and get some modelling done.

Coat of green added and then some removed to make it a rusty Piaggio next to the wall.  Will now try and make some broken windows
