Looks like the ones you see for 1/2 a second before they cut to a new car rolling down the road. The damage and rust looks fantastic, but you didn't paint the window trim :P

As every model maker knows, it's really not easy to simulate wrecked sheetmetal out of plastic. Plastic don't behave like metal.

You've done a great job Kerry. Very nice. ;)

Thanks ben and you are right. Plastic doesn't bend like metal. I worked in a salvage yard for six years and have seen a lot of reference material. That and being a Demolition derby fan and pit crew for many years tends to help as far as bending metal. Thanks again for the kind words....

That looks great but if it had hit a tree and flipped then surly the screen would be at least cracked if not shatterd!!! Great rust tho B)

Not a tree, a clump of small saplings. it could come out looking this way as I've seen a car do a similar roll and came out without a broken windshield at all. I've seen just about every type of accident car first hand, some I didn't really want to see but I have. Granted it could of depending on a more direct hit to that area but if hit more on the sheet metal the glass wouldn't of taken the impact.
