Looks really good Ian.

In my experience the single biggest factor in making this look right is the placement of the chips. I'm no expert but have been studying how and more importantly where rust occurs.

If you get the chips the right scale in the right spots it's totally convincing.

Thanks Russ, and I agree with Scott, although I find it easier to explain than do lol. Anyway I got this all done, a little late but at least I finished it. Start off with some bits and bobs for the trunk:

Then made a tarp out of sheet lead:

Added some chain in the back:


All done!



Thanks again for all the lovely comments! It was a great contest, well done to everyone that entered and to Scott for organising it. Now what's next.............????

Well know that's not nice John. Making fun of Polish people ;)
I don't believe that anyone else would assemble a car from so many different pieces from different cars ;)

But honestly that's one magnificent build ;) Congratulations
Cheers
