Classics, Wrecked

Here's a perfect excuse for clever a "wrecked 'em" pun and I can't think of one.

Classic Wrecks is your one-stop Etsy shop that will help you build the junkyard of your dreams.  John Findra builds 1/24 scale models of classic automobiles and then, as they would say in the fashion industry, distresses them.  I’ve always been a fan of scale modelers who build airplane crash or battle damaged armor dioramas.  The idea of cutting a brand new model off the sprues, and putting it together in the exact opposite condition of factory fresh puts a big smile on my face.

Helen Killer over at Regretsy listed John’s work as her number one favorite purchase of 2011.
