Default 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible 1/16 Junk Car

Hi Chevy fans!,

This is my favorite project now. It's going to be a highly detailed Chevy '57 Bel Air Convertible, as junk car.
I will make a small diorama to exhibit it including a junk gas pump model and other fine stuff!

As I said, it's supposed to be a high detailed model. Therefore I invite everyone owning some junk Chevy pictures to post them here as inspiration for typical rust & damage details on a Chevy. As the bodies of all tri-Chevy are very similar you can post junk pictures of any of them.

For every part I build I search on the internet. I've been visiting the forum for a while, not being a member yet and I thought: "it's nor fair to look information from you guys and not sharing this project with you"

So, I hope you all will enjoy this model project as much as I do. Tips, ideas and of course critic, always welcome!

Here some things I've been doing until now:

The body:


And the engine:



As an example of my work, here you see a 1/24 scale model of a '50 Chevy pick up photo mounted on a landscape picture from my last holidays:


Here, the same pick-up with other junk model cars:

Thank you both for the fast answer and the positive feedback!

Thank you for the link to the junk Chevy section. I wasn't really aware of it.
I had found junk Chevy pictures through the image search by google and that's how I found this forum.

Dude!!!! You are like my hero. WOW, That '50 Pickup is impressive. I wouldn't have know it otherwise.

I have been building models for 30+ years and enjoy the hobby very much. I have never done a deltail like yours. You are inspiring me to do so. Keep them photos coming. I will be watching. Maybe you can give me some pointers sometime.

Enjoy the build,
Rick

Hey Modeljunkyard, I like your work! Please don't feel offended if I don't ask you for any advice on my 57 restoration. I'm trying to go in the opposite direction with my project. But seriously, keep us posted with your model up-dates. I can appreciate your commitment to detail.
