Junk Yard Details Testing

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Been testing out more weathering techniques in combination with diorama placements. Trying to make smaller diorama compositions but still trying to maintain, an overall cohesive look. Will be grinding the threads of the tyres to add more wear and tear, and fixing the sink holes on the container. But so far I think it looks good.

Until midway through the pictures I was wondering why you were showing pictures of a real junkyard. Looks very real.

Looks amazing! I drove mk2 Transits like that for a haulage company years ago, looks like one of my drop offs! "Just dump it there mate" haha!

Your work on the weathering (especially the container) is awesome!

In my opinion, it is too much Junk for the "small base". i'm asking myself: could the Ford carry the weight of the container or would it break done under the weight? it is my personal view.

Complete agreement. The container would have buckled the cab completely. Also why would it have been placed there is such a position. I think the container could be removed and another car thrown across the vans rear chassis, and the realism would be spot on. The work though is really spectacular. The weathering is so good, it looks real.

The weathering you have done looks AWESOME!

My 2 cents... The junk yards I have been in have more little bits on the ground like bolts and spark plug wires and broken chunks of black plastic. Interior pieces too.

It probably would depending on how it was placed but one can only speculate. :) I'll see what I can do.

I'll re-think and/or consider it. Thank you.

In my opinion, a junk is a junk yard. Now, considering when and where the exact moment these things are , is a matter of opinion. I've been to junk yards where I have not seen a spark plug or the parts mentioned  in one particular area. Maybe in another part. I think on a broad aspect and not just one scene, but many different scenes. Think of it as one area among many different areas in one big location. Also, junk yards varies all over the world, and what things are found. I don't limit myself to a standard in a particular country. I have seen junk yards some-what similar to mine. Others with outrageous placement. One can not be fixed to just one type of scenario. :) Your 2-cent is well received. thank you.
