Every tin toy starts out as a flat sheet of metal that is printed and then cut into separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into its final shape through numerous tooling stations. The pieces are then hand-assembled to create the final toy. So, minor marks and paint flaws can occur. All tin toys are produced in the same style as they were in the 1950s and 60s.
