Hi Kev

In another life, I am a wargamer and found some HAT Industries bicycle troops with good 1940's style bikes that looked good on the layout.  (perhaps not if you are a modern-day modeller!!)

Try Severn Models for tools as well. They do a great etched brass "Garden Tools" kit which has rakes, shovels, pick axe, trowel and wheelbarrow.

Sorry if its too late!!!

Hi Kev,

Just a note of warning regarding Coopercraft. Please do not order anything on-line from their website, as money is taken, but no products sent or money refunded. This is a long standing issue on RM Web, as the current sole proprietor of this once great company, hasn't the ability to fulfill orders, is reluctant to disable his website payment system and seems able to deflect measures to return funds.

http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/112011-coopercraft-its-fate-and-thoughts-on-an-alternative/

You may however occasinally find Coopercraft tools and other kits on ebay.

Good luck with your search, there are several options out there.

Bill

Hi Kev,

It appears that Slaters have bought back their 4mm wagon kits from Coopercraft and intend re-introducing them in the New Year, once they have sorted out new instruction sheets.  Good news for 4mm modellers.
