This is truly inspirational.

Been thinking one day I might attempt a wreak. I was given a while ago a Tamiya 1:20 scale Porsche 928s
and was partially put together with what looks like 20jars of builders glue especially on the windows.

Any Ideas, I will put up some photos of the sate of the kit soon when I get my camera fixed.

Cheers
Gav

Thaks for the kind words Gav!!! Think you should definately give it a shot! I did some checking and the 928 was mostly Galvanized with the exception of the doors and hood which were aluminum.....imideately we need to change some peeds here....HIGH GEAR now!! :eek:

This was found HERE There a a bunch of sweet shot of some rusted Porches!!

The Galvy would rust and the aluminum would pit and in a burnt scene there is the nice melting and so forth!!

Say the word and I'm in!! LOL!!! Staart a thread and have at it!!! I will lend a hand where I can and I am sure some others will be there along the way!!

All else fails..........

Hey that last one was from Hamster's new show (well new to me), I thought he was going to cry when he had to drive over it!
