"Junker" Forum
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, April 2, 2004 7:43 PM
i think that there should be a seperate Forum for weathered cars because it's a bit confusing on where the weathered cars should go. Right now, the weathered cars are spread out in all the forums, and it's a bit hard to find junkers. i think the addition of a "junker" forum will increase the amount of weathered cars in the forums, and heighten interest amongst some people.

You mean a separate category or heading...not a whole new forum, don't you?

That sounds like a great idea. We could all learn weathering techniques from the masters among us if they would share the info. I (('m sure they would)
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

What little knowledge I know about weathering, I'll surely share-I've learned so much already from you kind folks. Didn't someone say on one of these forums we were community? Ask away.Approve

Maybe a combination of "beaters" and dioramas. these are both "orphan" catagories and deserve a spot of they're own. Nothing beats a good ol wreck, like some of the stuff I see on the roads around here, LOL hope these subjects get the respect they deserve. WOLF

So, Andy, how many members' approval do you need to start a "Junker" topic? Cuz I think many people want one!

We're going to still hold on this idea. I haven't seen that many "junkers" on this forum to necessitate devoting an entire area to them. We don't want to fragment the forum any more than needed. So at this point in time, we're going to say no to this.

Actually, A diorama section would be the perfect place for this type of building. Most of the weathered junkers i have seen were in a diorama, and I am collecting mass articles to start doing dio's.....seems to me there is ample interest and I think it is a subject of interest that isn't being nurtured.

But that's just my opinion...

Suggest you all use 'JUNKER' when you post a pic or start a topic re: 'junkers' (or beaters or whatever is agreed on), , ,Each one could also number their new topic, plus add whatever else in description.

That way, Andy could tell at a glance by sorting by topic just how much interest there is for a separate section on the Forum. Also, it would be much more recognizable when it showed up in any area on the Forum.

As an example -- "JUNKER" # 17('37 Ford Panel) Notice I used upper case for the word 'junker' .

That's my two cents worth --

I agree with supermacks. If we had a place to put them, then there would be a lot more junkers in this forum. Right now the junkers are all spread out in the forum. THere's some in Factory Stock, some in Other, and others in various random places. Maybe we could try the section, and if there isn't enough interet, we could just delete it. Just my My 2 cents

i think we should do a "diorama" section instead. 95% of the junkers i have seen have been in a junkyard setting diorama. plua, that would include other dioramas as well. racing dioramas (im planing one, just wait to see), a car show setting, garage in-progress settings, as well as junkyard settings. i dont build junkers but respect the people who do for their skills and probably have enough cars laying around that it wouldnt be hard. its definitely an idea worth trying at least. just my My 2 cents. later.

Hey guys, this has been talked about since the begining of time, but hardly anybody has ever posted a junker. If you start posting enough weathered cars, just maybe a new forum category will be created.
Until then, Andy has asked that any questions or weathered cars be posted in the closest forum to the subject.
Start posting those weathered cars!

ConfusedConfused I agree with most everybody else. It's hard to post a junker if you don't know where to put it. I have one rusting away in a field, another one on a before and after setting and I have a stand alone pickup that's not really a junker, but weatherbeaten. Then again, I have another weathered pickup in the same diorama as the rusting hunk, and a shiny showcar in the before and after. If we had a category for Junkers, Dioramas, and Weathered Models, I'd have at least five myself to post as soon as I figure out how to do that part! So, whattaya sayQuestionQuestionQuestion

Kit instructions? What's that??

MOPAR...by far!!!

I like clumpyjon's suggestion, a "diorama" section. Seems most of the junkers are in that type of setting, and the diorama section could include any model, or models in a specific setting, be it junk yard, garage or the front yard.
