    Don't you read the papers Shamus?
    It was the Trains "fault," people always stop and wait for trains.
    Sooo... This train had to be hidding behind a knee high bush,
    then jumped out, on to the tracks, just as that caddy crossed the
    tracks. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    It does look very real. Even in destruction you do Top Notch work.
    :D ;)

    Kinda reminds me of :

    " The engineer said he rang the bell,
    The fireman said you did like ----"
    And she blew, she blew! :eek: :D

    And as the drivers lawyer said in court, why did'nt the train engineer swerve out of the way to avoid the car while it was on the tracks?

    Tyson, as far as you can call a smashed automobile beautiful - you just created a real beauty! :cool:

    How did you crumple that model so realistically? Could you give us a few hints? (My own experiments produced simply ugly blobs of molten plastic, crushed and/or hammered plastic heaps etc.:( )

    Nothing fancy Ron, small hammer a couple of times then glued some of the pieces back on at odd angles, applied a little heat with a soldering iron in a couple of places and that pretty much covers it.

    Oh Tyson, how easy things are, IF you know how to do them right...

    I always heated up the model first, then I tried to crush it - silly me! That's why I never got sharp angles on my wrecks. It never ocurred to me to do it the other way around. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Thanks for the hint. I'll try it in the near future. :) :) :)
