This Old House is an unmarked and repeatable quest in Fallout 3.

Speak with Winthrop in the Underworld at the Museum of History to unlock the option to bring him 5 pieces of scrap metal to exchange for 1 stimpak, 1 RadAway or 1 Rad-X. This quest is very similar to Walter's Scrap Metal.

Notes

  • This quest can be side-stepped if your Strength, Small Guns, Big Guns, Energy Weapons or Melee Weapons is high enough to threaten Winthrop into giving you 10 stimpaks and 10 RadAway. There is no way to get any Rad-X out of Winthrop. Should you threaten him, there is also no way you can turn in scrap metal.
  • Casdin and the Outcasts will offer you a better deal on stimpaks and RadAway; only 2 hunks of scrap per item.
  • This does not award experience for turning in scrap metal, unlike Walter's Scrap Metal.
  • You cannot turn in scrap metal if you do not have at least five of it.

Behind the scenes

  • This quest is probably a reference to the American home improvement magazine and television series, This Old House.
