Two Tuk Tuks

Just to add to the ever growing traffic congestion my #2 son brought me back this pair of Tuk-Tuks from his recent adventures in India.

 They're made from soft plastic (polyethylene type) and may not be the best models in the world, but they're very close in scale for most 28mm figures.







There is a bit of flash on them and they could really do with a repaint, (after all who wants a green tyre ?), but nevertheless they're a welcome addition to my vehicle collection and I doubt that there are many other bloggers that can boast of having Tuk-Tuks !

  1. Welcome back from you blogging break. I have no use for a Tuk Tuk but suddenly I want one. You are right I can't think many bloggers will have a 28mm Tuk Tuk!

    1. Thanks for my welcome back from my enforced 'break' and I too didn't know I wanted one until I had one (two).

    1. Thanks for that tamsin, but it would look a bit like a "Del-boy' solution, but I like how you're thinking

    1. Thanks Paul, it would probably be like a drive-past shooting in sedan chairs

  9. Welcome back Joe. You've been missed dude!
    Awesome gift, they are uber cool. I'm already imagining the crazy chase scenes, you could hang out of the side with chainsaws.
    I doubt there's anyone else with Tuk-Tuks.

    1. They are, I suspect, from the Indian equivalent of Poundland.

  12. Great to see you back. These models are certainly something different, aren't they? Hmm, Pulp adventures in Delhi or zombie infestation in Mumbai? Or something else altogether :-) ?

    1. Thanks C6, finding a justifiable situation for their use could be problematic, but I'll use them at some stage.

  13. Dam I was hoping you were going to say Poundland when I saw these as a friend of mine is after some for A Fistful of Kung Fu project. They will look good with a bit of work.
