So wrong it's good

23 posts in this topic

Well to me anyway.

I was just passing this shop that sells amongst other things cheap tin models made in India I think, that are really bad ,wonky ,wrong scale, roughly painted copies.of trains motorbikes buses.and cars.

I was wondering when they would venture into our World.

And there he was,with a couple of Chinese.clockwork repros in front ,a tin robot standing tall but just like the trains etc all wonky and badly painted  .

But hey, he's tin, probably hand made and hand painted and as I said in the title So wrong he's good.

And cheap £20.

Or is he just cr#p:wacko:

Here's a pic. You make up Your mind.:biggrin:

Yeah I think your right.

No definitely tin all that Indian stuff is.

I think they work on the 'it will be alright from a distance' concept.:biggrin:

Yes, I posted re one of these here maybe a year ago. 

Must take a bit of time to make one and the makers must be getting peanuts for them as they are shipped here and still only 20 quid.
