Passing time…

This construction toy is the largest I currently make and the only one I design and make that isn’t entirely 3mm plywood, in this case the sides are 1.5mm thick.

Greek Ship construction toy, 300mm long

High grade birch plywood gets more expensive as it gets thinner, a reflection of the manufacturing costs and the much smaller demand.  This model has a working winch/anchor and is supplied with pva glue although this is not essential. I try to design models which are a good introduction to model-making and have some play value.  All the models can be painted, acrylic is best and available from many low-cost shops.

Suitable for girls and boys over 3 years.  On sale at Miller Toys and Models. There are 10 models to choose from and as the Corvid lockdown eases I’m hoping to add at least six more, manufacturing is not possible at the moment.
