When I first started making models I built mainly American Hot Rods and Dragsters. I recently decided to do a diorama that had been lurking in the back of my mind for some time. A wreck of a pickup truck is found and later a complete rebuild is finished. I got hold of 2 1951 Ford models and made a start, first by chopping the roof of one model and filling in some trim gaps, then a set of wheels from and old AMT Plymouth fury and after a lot of filling and sanding, I painted in in metallic blue. The wreck was a bit easier with general roughing up, denting and rusting. Some bits and pieces were added and some balsa wood fencing.
