Shambles

A little off topic...

Recommended Posts

I've built literally hundreds of model cars over the decades. Some didn't turn out too well so, well... they crashed. Wrecking models got to be a competition between me and my late, younger brother who was also an avid model builder and collector. If a build didn't suit us, we'd crash it and see who could make the most realistic-looking wreck. Here's one of my later attempts. I used a thick foil to make the deck lid so it would bend at sharp angles like sheet metal does. It's difficult to get plastic to do that. Making realistic-looking flat tires is also difficult. I've got more if y'all are interested in seeing them.

Cool, models of crashed cars is not a common thing to see and it gives the builder a new set of challenges.

Very cool! It's harder to build a realistic wreck than a realistic vehicle fresh from the assembly line.
