After a few years of customizing these little cars, I ended up with a box of scrap parts and bodies that I didn't know what to do with. So I created this 1/64th scale junk yard and called it "The Bone Yard" !!!
I started picking up items laying around the house and in junk drawers to add to the detail. You can use anything from paper clips to tooth picks. It's alot of fun and when your finished, you will be surprized at the piece of art you just created !!!
Welcome to The Bone Yard Auto Salvage The entery gate to the salvage yard is made from round strip styrene plastic and a small piece of window screen
The office and sales counter When you do customizing, you end up with many spare parts. I saved many of them and placed them on this handcrafted shelf
Messy ckeck-out counter The sales counter is cast from resin. I sprayed a fine mist of white primer over it to give it a dirty dusty look
Part-out Room Once again, many of the spare parts were used in this part-out room
Modern Newer Cars Too I pick up a lot of these beaters from garage/yard sales and thrift shops
Restorable ? These Johnny Lightning "PIP" (Project in Progress) cars make great junk yard diorama pieces. Along with some scrap parts here and there
Clean it up Many spare and junk pieces from broken diecast cars can make excellent junk yard pieces.
Wildlife in the yard The little snake came from a Johnny Lightning Road Trip U.S.A. series
More wildlife in the yard Another little animal from the Johnny Lightning Road Trip U.S.A. series
"Port~O~Pottie" peep show Someone should keep the door closed!
Lite Duty A Matchbox fork lift made to look like it has put in it's share of work.
Heavy Duty Another off brand diecast lifter all dirtied up to look like it's seen better days.
Towed in I think this Johnny Lightning Mustang is a total loss. Being towed in by a Johnny Lightning tow truck.
