At the Show - Metalwork

Alan Hamer is an IGMA Fellow in metalwork. He makes a wide range of 1:12 scale fully functional pedal cars with working steering and pedals.  He also designs gates, fireplace tools, children's toys and more. "In 2013 we will move to Europe," Alan tells us. "I look forward to making minis of the things I see in rural France." scalemetal@msn.com
