Thou Shalt Not……

My sister bought me The Strange Laws of Old England for Christmas. I’ve been thinking that there’s room for “Dumb Rules from the Holy Books”, listing outdated and offensive guidelines gleaned from the Bible, Koran and Torah (I’m an equal opportunity blasphemer). It would serve the dual purpose of amusement and stuff to use against those freaks who’ll quote a line out of context to justify some stupid position they hold. If someone wants to pay me the advance I’ll start work on it.

Little Things

I don’t know if this counts as Spinneyhead merchandise or not. I’ve started modelling again, but I don’t have anywhere to keep the finished products. So, because this is as much about the creation as anything else, you can buy them. Recently I’ve become hooked on little Cararama diecast cars. The scale’s almost perfect for OO model railways (like the one that’s taking over my room in my parents’ house. I have to sleep under Bransty tunnel when I go home.) To start things off slowly I’m customising a few of these cars. If you have a layout set any time in the last thirty or so years, they should fit right in. Buy them all and hold a mini cruise. Future projects will be a more involved and will probably lead to more products for Spinneyhead Scale.

My model projects are listed on a special blog. Prices are based upon the cost of the model and the time taken on it. Special commissions are welcome as well.

Beetle Custom

1:72nd scale Beetle, customised from a Cararama die cast. This car will fit right in to a OO scale model railway for any period from the 60’s to the present. Shown here with a stock Beetle for comparisons.

Mods- bumpers removed, new wheels, larger tyres at the back, lowered at the front, converted to right hand drive and interior detailed including a chrome gear lever.
