Scrap Metal - Update 2

I've updated this dio by adding different shades of rust to break the monotone look of the junk in its entirety. I've also added steel rods as a load on top of the Suzuki. I've also added other smaller details here and there and add more interest to an otherwise mute theme. I've added more photos of different junk piles from different sites around the world. Added a name tag made out of foam. If you've seen the first load of photos I put up, you will then see the small changes I have made. I will add the figures as soon as I have done painting them. Thanks for looking.

  1. Getting better and better, my friend Charles!

  2. I like the addition of the steel rods, they give the Suzuki a sense of purpose. I’m afraid my colour blind eyes don’t really appreciate the subtle tone differences, but I’m they’re there.

  3. Truly amazing, Charles @tiking
    Your effects are extremely realistic, for example picture 33 with the loose corrosion, and the set of wheels, incredible looks.

    • Thank you kindly John.

    • This is great ,everything the other guys have pointed out is correct , the steel tubes on the jeep are bending perfectly under there own weight except one which is a bit shorter and is keeping its rigidity and the loose corrosion in #33 looks so realistic, I work on a very large chemicals manufacturing site in the UK which is constantly being upgraded somewhere or other on site and so we end up with piles of scrap abandoned in unused corners just like this.

  4. Most realistic, @tiking. Very amazing work.
