Lawton, well, he actually is using 2/3s of that name. The prototype his yard will be based on is:
R.K. Freeman & Son...
But, maybe  - per your earlier email - There could be a Redd Foxx with a den on the grounds.
At least that won't be the "big one", Elizabeth Smiley

(For non American members, the two posts above are full of early 1970s, American TV insider sitcom references
That Lawton can surely explain if you ask him  Wink )

These are excellent Bill, especially given the diminutive scale. Looking forward to seeing the completed scene.

Craig, You're right, I found lots of photos of mounds of metal, and some of heaped up mounds of appliances or others stacked carefully, but much higher than you'd think they ought to be. The scrapyard Will will model was medium size, and aerial photos seem to show a cluster of appliances near a hydraulic crusher, so I hope I won't have to make a bazillion to capture the scene.

Make the outer ones like you are doing now and the inner ones just painted blocks which have been weathered.  In fact, since you are going to stack them, most only need one side to look  like an appliance.
