I saw a jig for making Peel Trident Domes not so long ago.  Have you already got one?

Is that a traction engine/steam roller behind them?

Thanks Barry , the hunt is on for the original , we wonder why it was ever copied and so badly so many years ago .
The photo could be quite interesting on a local history point . The photo is titled Woodchurch Road widening , June 16th 1929 . In July and August 1929 the world scout jamboree was at Arrowe park with 30,000 scouts and 300,000 visitors , previously the area had been very rural with a poor road and this , now main commuter route to the motorway , was obviously not deemed up to the job and so was widened and properly surfaced by great grandad . By 1931 he and his sons had bought those three brand new cars and I think business was on the up 😏

I was told they used a boot lid stay from an old Jaguar?

Yes I think so but it would be a bit expensive to buy a £120000 Jag just for the prop!

Here are some pics of the tube folding;

Not easy to do anything with a photocopy.  Automatic and easy settings can improve it a bit but much better if the original is a real photo.  Then, there is a lot of hidden tone that can be played with.
