Diecast Models- Dinky Woody Series
Dinky's Woody Wagon is not a very popular Dinky model. It is quite plain with the wood panels represented in metal. I have created a series of Woody models using the Dinky woody as the donor model. All the creations have had the "metal" wood replaced by real wood veneer. This time consuming task required drilling out the metal , filing the cavity neatly and then gluing in various wood veneer strips into the spaces. Various veneers were used allowing for a lighter or darker woor look. The outer "wooden " rim was left as metal but handpainted to try and simulate the wood look. Some models created required joining part of the Woody to another model or part thereof.
