Kevin the body was a one piece resin casting. Really nice on the outside but rough on the inside. I used a #68 drill bit to drill holes in the body and then used rust powders to weather the holes. The window glass was tough getting into place since it inside was so rough.

Thanks Craig.

A couple more junkers for the scrap yard. The top 2 pictures are a 1930 Packard with a pair of "T" buckets. I made the convertible top from brass wire and tissue paper. The bottom one is a 1927 Ford.

We need to find some newer cars. All we have are pre-forties stuff.

Thanks Mike and Jerry.

Carl, that weird looking yellow scenery stuff is the same as the weird green scenery stuff. Its ground up lichen. The bottom picture came out yellow for some reason. I blame it on Bill Gates.
