I suppose looking at this,manufacturers do have an
argument for making their products from plastic.
It does seem to be lasting better than the metal !!

Just shows my mind set at present, that blue bit looks like a piece of Lego with all the bumpy bits at the bottom. I could add it into the Lego blue tower, or into the Lego stable. Would look good in the imaginary Lego zoo too although with the brand name sterling there the boys would probably request a Lego train station to add to the track. Another day of me doing painting, Lego, playing with Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends and reading stories for my two three-year old grandsons, as it is pouring with rain hereSad
Great detailed rust, great lines and colours and that little bit extra, a piece of plasticWink

Careful Mick, if manufacturers hear you they may make everything from plastic and rust would eventually disappear forever, imagine that.
Great shot, I like the mix of natural, partly natural partly manmade and manmade.
