I'm detailing up one of the original Dapol Brighton Works Terriers: extra pipework, painting, sandbox moving et al. Photos often show a degree of clutter on the tank tops with fire irons dumped behind the handrail. A small coal bucket would be a nice touch. Most of the plastic varieties are more the size of 9 gallon barrels, but I located this whitemetal item in the box which was much more suitable. All I had to do was to drill the centre out and fit a handle from 0.5mm wire. Much swearing later and I'd got something coal bucket shaped. Now to paint.
