    Indeed, the whole history of tinplate toys mirrors the last 100 years, Bassett originally used the German stuff but after ww1 it all went anti jerry that's how Hornby,Triang and Meccano all got going and now we don't make anything, hats off to Mamod though,they're still plugging away.

    You're right it is!๐Ÿ‘
    Might have known you'd know the museum ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Maybe others were interested. I found the Bassett-Lowe connection interesting.

    Hi Doug, Been onto the freinsheim museum, they thought the conning tower was not original but an American collector of Bing thought it was original and sent me this pic from a book.
    If you look at B-25 the tower is very similar?
    cheers Neil

    Looks like it might have been part of one of their Flying Boats!
    Lots of their old goodies to see in the Bing Museum.

    Sadly Bing was a victim of the 30s crash and the company was broken up.
    BTW: they used to do a lot of contract model railway work for Bassett-Lowe! 16mm track gauge, which became the HO/OO standard.
    The loco in the pic is a 'Real Steamer' ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ahoy mateys, U47 11" tinplate clockwork diving submarine as usual made from landfill (despite what the government says about recycling!?). Anyway, the last pics Iv'e posted are of a Bing Werke 1920s submarine Iv'e acquired which I'm going to restore, the problem is identifying the original model. I think its B-25,so if anyone can shed any light it would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks Neil. www.mclarenclockworksubmarines.com
