Thanks Robert, at the moment I'm wondering about adding more or leave well alone, the thing is, it's not a scrap yard (I have one on another part of the layout) it's more a place where cars have been dumped but there's room for something else.

I think it looks very well as it is.
Adding any moire might take away from the scene rather than add to it
It looks superb right now thumbsup.gif

Thanks Tony, I have an old Morris that I intend to work on, if it looks good in the scene I'll use it, if not, I'll dump it on one of my hills smile.gif

I think this is a classic case of 'Less is More'. Brilliant modelling but don't overdo it.

*** Brilliant Phil. Its a pleasure to watch the evolution of each area of your layout.

Re adding something else here... To my eye, the basic scene has enough "hero items" and the cars look great.

So - perhaps not another car, but such areas always gather small detritus like the odd broken gate, plank, tree branch or garbage cans or related rubbish.

The rest is so good sort of I hesitate to add this and do so constructively: You might be tempted to rethink the car seat detail... that long front plastic flap is the only thing that jars a bit. The seat with the front flap cut away to leave only the seat - and some rusty metal mountings under it - would really do the trick and enhance believability.

Kind regards

Richard

PS: Every time I read your thread title I am a wee bit jealous - time to model is something I do not have right now.

Thanks Cameron & Richard!

Richard...I was waiting for someone to spot that seat, biggrin.gif it was just cut out and dropped into the scene to get some shots taken...but it will be corrected as I remember those seats very well after my father's cars, I also remember how cold the leather felt in winter with short trousers rolleyes.gif

As for adding more "junk" I already have a salvage yard, this scene is where cars were just abandoned and I don't want to add too much too it, I'm pushing it with three cars but thanks for you suggestions wink.gif

These were taked with a long shutter speed and by waving an LED torch around the scene.
