Meccano Dinky No.693 7.2-inch Howitzer

Standard

Produced by Dinky from 1958 to 1967, I picked up this rough looking Dinky 7.2″ Howitzer for $1 at the Salvation Army Shop,  it had no towing eye, no elevating Wheel and no tyres and was painted in a thick coat of black Glossy Paint.

I stripped the old paint off, replaced the elevation wheel with a part salvaged off another dinky, constructed a new towing eye, repainted it in Tamiya Olive Green and fitted with new tyres. Not a perfect restoration but not to bad for my first effort.
