After our story in issue 25 of Eden News on Barry Hall in Lincoln and his Coca-Cola lorry built using a mobility scooter, we were contacted by another customer who had a similar passion for model making.
Evans Hunniford, of County Armagh in Northern Ireland, contacted us after reading the article on Barry and sent us some photographs of his own fantastic creations. Evans told us how he had always had a passion for all things vintage, restoring several Ferguson tractors before his retirement when he decided to focus on building half & third-scale replicas.
His models include the Willys 1942 Jeep (built using a Shoprider Deluxe), the 1942 Fordson tractor (also built using a Shoprider Deluxe), the 1938 Foden lorry (Mercury M48) and his latest built - the 1933 MG Sportscar (built from a Kymco Maxi XLS) which took him 16 months to complete.
Evans told us that his models can be driven by both adults and children and that he displays them at vintage rallies and charitable fundraising events throughout Northern Ireland, saying "it is a joy to be able to bring a little enjoyment to others while helping raise much-needed funds for some very worthy causes".
We love to hear from customers such as Evans, so if you have a story you would like to be considered for Eden News and our blog please contact us.
