Wonky Racer Rabbit Car

Here is a little racing car made out of an old John Bull puncture repair tin, some bits of Meccano and some hand cut tin, inspired by the look of battered old vintage tinplate toys. I love the surface texture of rusty old tins. The letters were handcut with tinsnips, apart from the two "O"s, of course, which are washers.

Wonkybot No 2, Cedric

Have completed second wonkybot.His name is Cedric. He has a slightly raffish air, I feel, on account of his jaunty red hat.

Sold!

Well, Wonkybot No.1 was on Etsy for all of a day and he's been sold! He will be winging his way over the Atlantic Ocean in the next few days. I'll have to wrap him up well for the journey. Here are a few more photos of him.
