Default How about wrecked rusty cars

I saw a thread here from a while back asking about how to simulate a rusted adandoned car. Sadly all the pictures had been removed, I wonder if this was the effect he was looking for. These are mostly Hot Wheels 1/64th S Scale.
I am going to do a diorama of a junk yard one day, still plan to do a few more cars first.

Well, I found out you don't want to add dialog to a post AFTER you start uploading pics. Ended up with the pics scattered everywhere. Here are some more , hopefully in nice order.

OK That didn't work a lot better. How about one at a time?

AHA!! IT Worked!!
My modeling era ends in 1950 so the only way I could find to put a brand new Ford in the Junk yard was to have a fire at a Local Ford dealership---OK ---Now I'm an arsonist too

When I built this Hot wheels did not have a Cord, this is made from the front half of two VW's put together, fenders came from an Auburn.

Thanks. Happy you like them. I have not displayed them for quite a while because I got tired of non modelers thinking all it took was beating them with a hammer!!
