Rinky Dink

My friends Sarah and Leigh at Factory Road sent some lovely custom 45 adapters down the other week. After years of buying up old stocks from US factories they’ve made their own, improved from existing versions and de-bossed with their logo. They also offer a custom service with your own name or wording on the dinks if you need something special or want some for promo. Contact Leigh at [email protected] if you want more info – they also make records, prints and T-shirts and are lovely people.

Here’s one I made earlier

We’ve been having a clear out of the kid’s things and I’m sad to say that these have to be consigned to the bin (although my wife is probably very relieved). Built from toilet rolls, pizza bases, cereal packets and lots of gaffa tape, they form the near pinnacle of my model making with the boys. I say near pinnacle because there’s still a giant robot in mid-construction…

The Millenium Falcon has seen better days, having been flown (read: thrown) around the house on many occasions. likewise the AT-AT has had several falls as Duplo Snow-Speeders ensnare it’s legs.
