This warehouse trolley was scratch-built from various thicknesses of plastic card following a design I saw on the TV programme Salvage Hunters. The trolley was used in a fabric manufacturers/dyers and as I sat watching, I quickly sketched details on a scrap of paper. The only addition or change from the original were the four lifting lugs, one on each corner. The wheels were sections of knitting needles cut into discs and sanded smooth. The metal strapping was more (thinner) plastic card.
Painting was built up over a dark brown basecoat with lighter highlights brush painted with acrylic paints. The plank effect was done by applying washes over the textured plastic card sides while the metalwork was painted in a dark brown/black colour with a fine brush.
The model was varnished with Galleria Matt Varnish before I applied metal highlights with a graphite pencil.
