Everything on this page has been converted from a child's toy.

Another example of just what can be done using toys as a basis for conversion can be seen here.

Dave O'Brien, who plays the YIDZ in the Ztum-Setum campaign, converted these models from ERTL's Thomas the Tank Engine range to provide PETRAMCO with some transport for cargoes of JuJuJuice.

Dave is now running his own professional painting service - Military Dispatches. See his website at http://www.militarydispatches.co.uk for more examples of his work and a price list.

Two tanks and two helicopters both cost less than £2 at Poundstretchers

£1.49 from Woolworths, £1.14 from Big W, this truck doesn't even really need painted.

But they paint up very nicely indeed. (Colin Grant)
