Workshop of Uncle İsmail

 

This exhibit is the workshop of the model train maker the late İsmail Atsürer.All his models were made using traditional hand tools rather than modern, powered machinery. As well as trains, İsmail Atsürer later started working on model ships. He produced miniature working models of marine engines, but was unable to finish a fully-working ship model before his death at the age of 91. The workshop incorporates his treadle lethe and hand tools (mostly 19th century). (kindly donated by İsmail Atsürer's daughter, Ms. Nihal Atsürer)
