Much of the Junk Yard is conveyed with paint on scraps of modelling materials.
In this instance, I'm using the old dismounted wagon body trick mounted on 2mm plasticard in the first corner.



I have a few sheets of Slaters Brick sheeting so I'm making the walls surrounding the yard with this.
It's very thin and only has bricks on one side so I'm making a rigid sandwich with the use of 1mm plasticard to give bricks on both sides of the wall.





More soon.

A judicious spray of silver / gold / grey gives me a base to work on later while providing metallic highlights for the scrap.

I like the brick wall, and it's a clever move giving it an overall spray!

Assembling the junk and choosing a horse to go into the stable which isn't there yet.
Brick pillars to support the wall will (probably) be made from ....... Lego! (gasp).
Finding a Matchbox vehicle to take the wheels for the cart which I haven't made yet.

See website for previous Scrap Yard. I need some more puns for this one.
Any contributions will be gratefully received.

I would never have thought of using gold and silver DD. First impressions are very Christmassy, but knowing your attention to detail, I'm sure it will become another good lesson is assembling something from a heap of odds and sods.

No problem with a contribution. If you mail me your address, I'll send you a heap of junk to help.

Very clever use of the gold and silver paint as base colours DD, I'm just watching from the sidelines, and taking it all in, don't stop showing us how you work on a project like this, as we can all learn new tricks.

More junk and the start of wall construction.
Method can be seen despite dodgy camera work.

Shergar finds a home.



All very 'new' looking until painting stage.

Tip: I've used Wills sheet for the corrugated iron.
The edge is very thick and spoils the illusion so I always cut/file down the edge to make it thinner.

I must have a destructive streak - I enjoy making things (like the walls etc.) as new and then assaulting them with a paintbrush to provide extreme weathering.

Two nice diorama orders this weekend - unfortunately nothing to do with junk yards.

Just the top door and the stable door furniture to add now.
No rainwater goods - the horse is lucky to have a roof, let alone plumbing.
Its master lives in a cardboard box.
