I needed a scale coal wheelbarrow similar to the one in the photo taken at Windemere Steam Museum. Printed some drawings from the web at the right scale and did some lofting to get the flat pattern. The 'bucket' is made from 0.5 mm copper sheet and the frame from 4mm brass tubing. The wheel is a cast whitemetal ships' wheel with the handgrips cut and filed smooth.The whole wheelbarrow was sprayed with Rhona anti rust primer and drybrushed with silver and black to give the rusted used effect.Coal is from G scale railway and the shovel is a dollar store find, drybrushed.
