"QUALITY REPRODUCTION BOXES FOR MODEL CARS
When I came across this nice website, I wrote to the company, and got a reply the next day from Mr. Robb Barlow, the owner of the company who lives in Great Britain. He reproduces replacement boxes from Dinky Toys, French Dinky Toys, Corgi Toys, Matchbox Series, Spot-On, Budgie, A Crescent Toy, Lone * Star, Tri-ang MINIC, Morestone Series, and Scaleextric.
I asked Robb a few questions about the process by which he makes his boxes.
Robb obtains original boxes from friends, clients and other dealers. He carefully scans then, but doesn't open up the boxes. He scans all of the sides and ends, then using software retouches the scanned copies to remove stains, damaged spots, scratches, and handwriting. From there, Robb then accurately reproduces the colour, before making a proof box. From there, limited numbers of boxes are made for his inventory.
