Mac Tools 1:12 scale tool locker

by brae  

Behold the behemoth that is the Mac Tools Racing 1:12 scale tool locker!  :O  My 5'9" equivalent model isn't male-model tall but he's no munchkin, either.  This piece is 6" tall and 5.5" wide.

To me, it seems like he would behead himself with that heavy top in real life.  :\  However, I found a photo online that illustrates just how perfectly in scale it is.

This piece is actually a limited edition collectible coin bank, but it has all the exterior detailing of the original right down to the warning labels.  I can't decipher the text, but I think the gist is, "This beast will kill you if you let it fall on you."

It's a great piece to display on its own.  Only two drawers open using buttons inside the top, so while a decent display piece I don't know how many tools you could reasonably keep in it.  The included tool in one of the drawers is used to open the bank.

It is too big for Milo Valley Farm, and I wouldn't want to grunge it besides.  I hadn't really had it in mind for the barn anyway.  I was thinking more for the Brownstone garage.

That is a really cool find, I can’t wait to see how you stage it with an actual model car :) (Frankly, I’m looking forward to more of the Brownstone as well, but I enjoy seeing everything you build, so I can wait…ha!)

That is a monster tool chest. Must belong to a serious vehicle tinkerer =0)

OHH! So cool! Love the warning label on the back :) I’m sure that it will add some extra omph to whatever scene it ends up in!

Oh my! A) James has had his eye on several tool boxes just like this in real life, and he is 5′10″ and they tower over him. His lottery winning tool box has a built in refridgerator, bottle opener and stereo with big speakers. Also, B) He just drooled on me about this piece and is requesting a mini garage of his very own.

Hi there. This is awesome. Do you know where I can buy stuff like this? I am looking for cool garage accessories in 1/12 scale but can’t seem to find any. Not for tool boxes anyway.
Thanks

I found this one on eBay, which is likely your best bet. There are several varieties of banks in red and black.
