Apologies for the few posts, I'm really into my 54mm Toy Soldier collecting at the moment (see my other blog) capturing my childhood once more, combined with the magic of old-time toy shops. But here is something which will work perfectly with my 28mm French Revolutionary armies.
Several years ago I purchased a music box biscuit tin for Christmas. It cost £5 and included a pack of shortbread biscuits. The Swiss mechanism plays, rather quaintly, DECK THE HALLS with Holly. With hindsight, it wasn't that great looking, and recently decided to get rid of it. Change of plan, decided to see if it could be converted into something more attractive.
Completed yesterday, here it is. I'm a lot happier with it, and the tin container can also store some walls, railings, and street lamps. And the music only adds to my old style 'Toyshop Atmosphere'.
