I call this little vignette - Smashed! I looked at many pics of different truck crashes and went on from there. Enjoy the photos.

What a sad end for such a nice truck model. I reckon you've captured the look of destruction very well. Love the way you've dropped part of the front section - I've seen them like that too.

greatjob

Thanks. Unfortunately I've never liked the Renault Magnum. Too boxy for my taste. I had this kit just sitting there and did not know what to do with it. Now you know what happened to it. Wink

Thats probably one of the hardest things to do, show body damage. I think you have done it well. One of the most realistic ones I've seen. Normally they are over done or been done with a lighter only. You've included detail that damage can expose. Excellent. winner greatwork greatwork greatwork

how did the sale go, if you don't mind me asking. i'm just thinking the amount of work is never going to be fully covered by the price, let alone the parts.

Thank you both. I decided to take it apart as I was not really happy with it. I know. What an idiot. Smile but I have a thing about things being just right. Crazy as it may sound.
