Project: Toy Train

As part of the Design Communications module a model/prototype had to be produced based on a current product, a train was clearly chosen in this case. The original was purchased from a well known pound shop. The model that was created had to be a variation of the current product, much like they would do in industry to keep sales up and refreshed.
