Some shots of my scale junkyard. All the models were built from previously built gluebombs or parts cars I had lying around. The "yard" was built from a
piece of 1/4 inch plywood, and I used railroad turf and ballast for ground.

AMT 57 Chevy, This was a started built up with terrible paint, so I made it into a junk gasser.

This was the shell of an old AMT monster truck. Pieced together with stuff from the parts box.

I bought this 69 Dart as an unpainted built up at a local fleamarket for .50 cents, it was missing the back bumper, but the 383 was in it and not screwed up, so I kept that. I put a junk 318 from a van in it. I made the tarp to cover up the missing parts on the back end.

Another parts box queen, Monogram 70 GTX, this one was painted to represent faded super blue paint, I added a vynl top with masking tape, and opended the door area, and hinged the door to hang open.

Revell '63 Chevy, This was missing the trunk lid and engine when I got it, I added a 283 engine from an AMT '57 Chevy, and filled the trunk area with various junk.

Another shot of the GTX, you can see the hood hinges in this one, I think they came from an AMT superbee, but I don't remember for sure.
