Iíve been working on a couple of vehicles for the O-Scale Lake Shore Industrial layout. These are junk for the junk yard.

The Revell Chevy 2-Ton truck received some modifications. I made a new right front fender from .005 copper. First I built the cab then I formed the wrecked fender over the good one and then I cut the good one off.

The bed had molded wood which I replaced with real strip wood. I set my Proxxon table saw fence at the thickness of the metal trim. Then gently lowered the bed and cut out the wood center piece. The side gates were also replaced with real wood and plastic stanchions. I flattened the front tires and gave it a modest rust job.







This was a old Chevy pickup that I built from a Russian kit. Itís also had its share of rust.

That is fabulous work indeed Frank! Great looking rust and weathering. Your front fender using .005 copper is fantastic looking, as well as the rest of that vehicle.

Thanks Carl.

Ted, the frame is just peeking out under the front fenders in the shot of the driverís door. The wheels are gone because itís a junk yard scrap vehicle.

Thanks Louis. Didnít you mean, ďas well as the rust of that vehicle.Ē The .005 copper was really a little too heavy but double heavy duty aluminum foil was way too thin. Maybe .005 aluminum would be better.

Thanks Jerry.
