I made these miniature fuel can and starter batteries from balsa blocks and plastic sprue. Painted with acrylic model paints, then applied aluminum foil and stickers. Fuel can height is about 1 1/2 ins. I named them as Cox Miniature Accessories.  Small Cox Logo  Very Happy

Perfect gift when trying to determine what to give the person that already has everything!

Great rendition.

These are cute Smile

On a related note, can any English native speaker enlighten me what does "Drome" in "Thimble Drome" mean?

I believe it’s a play off the old word “Aerodrome”. With the intent of racing cars in a miniature area, therefore:  thimble Drome.  The trademark Thimble with the cars and planes racing out of it.

Here’s a trip down memory lane: https://www.coxengineforum.com/t9012-what-does-thimble-drome-mean?highlight=Thimble+Drome
