About

A Tour of My Junkyard

Automobiles have been an influence in my life, as long as I can remember. Toy cars, car ads and finally real cars have been part of my story. I can tell you every family car we ever had by make and color. They have shaped my life from my first job delivering for a drugstore in a VW.... to the Jeep that drove us to delivery our daughter. Its the ups and downs of life that creates our memories and for me there always seems to be a car in the background. I have been making car models since I was a kid and was always striving for perfection. But now I realize its the wear and tear and the imperfections that makes them and life special and I try to capture that in my junker models.

Welcome to the junkyard, classic wrecks that is. I make wrecks out of perfectly good cars. The 1/24 scale kits contain over 200+ pieces that I hand assemble. I try to make them pretty authentic, but they are really my artistic rendering and vision of these classic cars. There are lots of amazing fun details to see and discover in these little gems of scale plastic models. We are always putting new wrecks in the shop everyday. Enjoy your cruise thru my junk yard. Happy Motoring!

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries.

The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information.

*International orders can in some cases, take up to a month to arrive if delayed, however losses are very rare.

Please keep in mind that these wrecks are not perfect due to the nature of the art and imperfections are part of what makes them so creative, fun and special.
Additional policies and FAQs
We love to do custom jobs when the desired plastic model of car is available by the manufactures in a kit form. Please only convo me here at ETSY. The price is based on the cost of your model that I have to acquire, so I am also dependent on what car models and years that the model companies make. Please send photos if you have any. Front ,back, driver side and passenger side that are shot straight on. Also, please note this is art form and in only 1/24 scale so every thing is really tiny . I may not be able to reproduce every little detail or tiny dings etc as your photo but I will try my best. This is an artistic impression of your car. Custom orders usually takes me 4-6 weeks to construct, once I find your desired model. Thank you for stopping by.....

PLEASE note: all content whether art, text or photos are protected under U.S. and international artistic copyright laws. Please do not use, reproduce, sell, transfer etc without written permission from me.

IMPORTANT: based on the amount of TINY small parts these are NOT toys and are NOT intended for small children. They are really for display only and not to be played with. They are a delight to look at, but need to be handled gently.

Thank you
