Struggle with etched brass? Try this wonky bus shelter.

Bus Shelter

The trouble with etched brass kits is that they can be a bit fiddly and sometimes you bend the bits and can't strighten them out again.

Sometimes though, why bother?

This bus shelter at the southern end of Leamington Spa appears to have been assembled by a cack-handed builder. I think it's more likely to be the result of a gentle tap by a double-decker full of students a couple of months ago.

Phil, It's a very common occurrence as a result of three factors: the new trend for big and wide drivers mirros; shelters being positioned too close to the kerb so as to maximise walk-by space for pedestrians; and managments insistance that us drivers get as close to the kerb as (un)humanly possible to ease loading or customers (passengers to you and me in old money!)

Keep up the good work, Peter (donator of Hellingly brickbit)
