Scale Modeling in Metal 1/10 Scale Cars made of Aluminum cans

Meet Sandy Sanderson from New Zealand. Needing something to keep himself occupied after breaking his wrist in a motorcycle accident, he started building amazing model cars from discarded aluminum cans. His incredibly intricate work Sandy's something of a renaissance man; draftsman, guitar player, teacher, motorcyclist, instrument maker and model builder. When he was in a motorcycle accident which shattered his wrist and put him out of action for a while, he needed something to do. While finishing a canned beverage he thought of model airplanes he'd seen made from cans and thought why not make cars out of the same material? And thus was born the CanCar. The "Coriba Climax" is his first effort and while impressive in its own right you see the cars keep getting more and more technically detailed with each successive build. Very cool hobby Mr. Sanderson Although these are not models of some real cars, the size of them would put them at about 1:10 scale.

Recycled Art
Art from old cars Artist James Corbett has turned old car parts into awesome sculptures. James Corbett discovered his talent for creating his amazing pieces of art whilst running an auto recycling business. The parts themselves are often interesting, some are as much as eighty years old, says James Corbett.

LARGE SCALE 1:8 MODEL 23 T-BUCKET CUSTOM BUILT MODEL CAR REVELL
This T-bucket model was basically scratch built or "kit bashed" as they say in the plastic model car world. Many of the parts where however fabricated by myself. The chassis was all custom built using brass channel and tubing. The front leaf spring,chrome tube shocks ,rear coil overs,steering arm and linkge where also all fabricated. The engine detail was the most difficult with all the fuel lines and wiring.The car is fully plumbed and wired with working lights and steering. I also sourced parts from several different 1/8 scale models such as the Big "T" and the Monogram/Lindberg T-bucket models along with the Revell Duece.
