All over the country, in sheds, hangers and harbours, a silent army of dedicated other halves have been tinkering away. At last, in Big Boys’ Toys, these blokes step out into the daylight to be counted. Centurion tanks, super tractors, flying tricycles-you name it, they’re fixing it, painting it, tuning it or replacing the brake pads. Packed with photos, Big Boys’ Toys lifts the dust sheet to uncover the whos, the hows and, most mysteriously, the whys, of oversized boys and their supersized toys.
