Perhaps I'm becoming a "wierdo"!  As I look around on my day to day travels I seem to look more closely at rust, grot, stains. Too often I go to model exhibitions and see glossy engines, pristine stock - that's not life. Things deteriorate (especially us humans) and that is what I like to reproduce in models. Long live rust!!!! (though it usually doesn't)

The nice thing about scrap lines is you can build whatever you want, and all that lovely rust (sorry I'm dribbling!!)
Here's one just a few miles from me here on the Isle of Wight".

  Les, thatís not scrap , itís good stuff waiting for a new use !  Do you know what the crane is ? Looks a bit like a Ruston Bucyrus RB17/19 . Am I anywhere close ?

The scrap yard collection is growing - a petrol pump with all its inner bits -a single cylinder stationary engine with water pump and a few galvanised tanks with fittings

Maybe you could have a yard sale instead of a scrap yard and recoup some of your investment Smiley

Barny, such a junkyard can have more flair like make glossy plant. I'm excited to see what happens next.

Nice collection of "junk", and much more interesting than the usual pile of castings.

More junk for the yard (or usable bits for another day) The hand winch - all parts trial fit only so-far needs a few more spacers on shafts and fit a brake - the cogs are nylon and were a bit thin for 1/16th scale so they now consist of two glued together back to back

What kind of paint will you use to paint the nylon gears?
