Matchbox Models of Yesteryear Code 3 Foden Showmans Steam Wagon W. Pruett Jnr

This is a superb Code 3 Matchbox Models of Yesteryear Y27 Foden Steam Wagon. This has been modified into a showmans wagon, with a white-metal extension canopy and dynamo fitted with twisted brass. The original body was cut down into a ballast tractor, and a metla coal bunker fitted in the rear. Fully loaded up with a barrel and generator (scratch built) in the rear, and sacks/ladder and dynamo belt on the roof, a metal hose reel has been added to the chassis. Repainted in smart dark brown livery with a black chassis, and details picked out by hand in copper/silver. Authentic custom decals for W Pruett Jnr Amusements On Tour have been made and fitted. Comes in an original maroon yesteryear box. Complete one-off that won't be repeated, really solid heavy model that looks beautiful on display.
Most of my models are based on period photographs, and are largely all authentic liveries recreated as best as I am able, I try to keep these looking prototypical and correct. If you would like more photographs please contact me.
This would look stunning in any collection. I will wrap this carefully for postage. Please note that my Models are handpainted and hand finished, and are thus not as well finished as factory produced models. I try to describe and photograph my models as well as possible, but please bid on what you see.
