    Rats!! I just realized I had already posted the Hudson truck finished on a post of that name, sorry to waste space posting it twice.

    Here is another wreck, one that I have not posted yet at all. It is a 34 Packard that got "can openered" . It's not done but I have a scratch built motor for it & it is pretty well along its "path of destruction'

    Looks VERY good, 'specially the rotted top. I'd love to find some more tiny gears, my stock is very low and i'm building up a collection to actually make something.

    I bought my stock on E bay in the "watch parts" catagory--- a big pile of them. Actually they were a lot smaller than I thought from the picture, I was hoping to use them as drive gears for shay wheels , a lot of them appeared to be bevel gears , or crown gears & they were, but a shay needs a gear at least 1/4 inch or a bit more -- these turned out to be 1/8 or less. .
    If you look real close at one of the 40 ford interior pics you can see one used as a flywheel peeking thru the firewall , set in a small piece of tubing to look like the bell housing of a motor, & of course the timing gears on the Packard V12--- I know it probably really used a chain!!wall1

    I count seven cylinders.
    Just kidding.
    Your process is unique because it would work in all scales and it's incredibly realistic.
    The use of tin plate manipulated to replicate solid steel panels is genius.
    I love looking at them.
