PostSubject: Small desert diorama   Sat 31 Aug 2013, 3:55 pm

At GSL in June I bought a couple of bags of parts from a vendor.  In addition to several car bodies, I was able to come up with enough parts to ALMOST complete two 32 Ford Coupes.  Didn't have enough to build a "shiney" so I decided to do a diorama showing an abandoned rusted car in the Arizona desert.  I originally intended to do a rather large diorama, but there is a contest coming up in September in Ogden, Utah and I wanted something ready for it; thus the small diorama.  I finished it yesterday.  Hope you guys like it.  As  always, questions, comments and friendly ridicule always welcome.

It wouldn't have tires/wheels. I think it was Dr. Cranky who did a Y.T. on an abandoned "target" car. I like yours and am guessing it's 1/25th.

I kind of have a problem with flat statements like this. My family comes from the Arizona desert and I have spent a lot of time wandering around out there. It has been my personal experience that there are abandoned cars both with and without tires. I admire much of Dr. Cranky's work, but he is not the final word on things.

Glad you liked my dio, even with tires.

Junk and abandoned cars can be found in just about any state of deterioration.
Nice 'lil scene, John !

This looks great, it still amazes me how you all manage to get these looking so real with the rust and weathering...
