|"Time for a quick break I think"|
Probably the most interesting thing about this particular model (for at least some of my followers) is that not a single coffee-stirrer was used in the construction!
|"Ketchup, mustard or BBQ sauce ?"|
The pictures should be self explanatory, the second view showing the side where the vendor would sell from.
The body of the model is made from 5mm cork (scraps from my foray into terrain boards)
In the top photograph the actual layers of cork can be easily discerned, making the model about
25mm to the top of the cart.
|"Extra onions please"|
The bottles and bread-rolls were made from a wooden barbeque skewer, as was the rear supporting leg.
The bottles were much quicker to make this time, as I'd had a lot of practice with them from my supermarket shelves.
The white panels, represent the various compartments that are found on these type of carts and are paper.
A couple of final bits of info, there are serviettes on the stand, though none of the photos shows them clearly, the were made from newspaper, stacked glued and cut into triangles. The wheels where made from 5mm cork too and filed to shape.
In case you're wondering about the title it's an in-joke more than likely lost on everyone, you would have to be fairly old and have close connections with Newcastle to understand it (it has nothing to do with wor King Kev btw).
In other news, I'm now the proud Grandfather of my daughter's baby girl. Mother and child are doing fine and I do like the idea of having grandchildren (but not the idea of being a grandfather - makes me feel old, but what the hey - I am !).
Finally let me say welcome to my two latest followers, "StuG and Kris Marquardt" (I think), if I missed you out, my apologies but "Welcome", nonetheless, I hope that there's something here that you find interesting.
That's it for this week hope you all had a good holiday and as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks Irqan, I've probably got more time than you to muse over things, but the main reason probably is that I haven't got the cash to buy already made stuff.Delete

Diet or Reguar Coke Sir ?Delete
Welcome to my corner of the web Deathurgent btw.
Very nice model. What are the wheels made of? Do they turn?ReplyDelete
The wheels were made from 5mm cork, like the most of the rest of the model. They could have been made to turn fairly easily (cocktail stick or similar for axle), but I elected to go with them being static.Delete
Oh, and welcome to my blog.
