The drums are easily made from aluminium baking trays.

I have made 140 drums, and are of very low cost.

Thanks, Peter. 

It is a neat way to make the drums. 

I'm sure the process would also work in Large Scale,
1:24 in my case.

Thanks for starting the Thread.  :thumb: 

Regards, Dave L.

My next project is this Liberty Classics Studebaker tank truck. 

I will try to remove lettering and keep the gold striping. 

Different wheels and a painted top is all I plan to do to complete it. 

Regards, Dave L.

Tonight I started work on the project. 

The top has the first coat and the wheels are exchanged with another set.
