Bill Hudson Posted May 2, 2014 Share Posted May 2, 2014 I originally wrote the tutorial in 1995 and printed it in a booklet. I have since added pictures showing patterns and tools. It may take me a while to post the whole tutorial here. Most of my work shown here is in 1:12 scale however I also work in 1:8 once in a while. All of this material is copyrighted.(Taken from the Scale Model Horse Drawn forum where it is also posted) Tinware Tutorial Bill Hudson is a master model maker who lives in Eugene, Oregon USA. A number of his models are now in private collections and museums. Here, Bill gives an excellent tutorial on bending and shaping tin to produce scale pitchers, jugs and tinware that adds interest and authenticity to many scale models. At one time Bill used to teach a class at the Guild School in Castine, Maine; and much information is reproduced here from a small manual bill prepared for use in the class. These first 6 pages show the basic lay out. This works for all thin metals, paper and probably even plastic. I usually lay my patterns out on old file folders. You can cut them out in paper or card and assemble them with glue for a test. Most all the method and tools are regular available tools or hand made tools and my methods of construction are geared not to require complicated or expensive tooling.
