The Morris Eight
I wanted to create a really derelict car and selected the Morris Eight as the guinea pig. I wanted it to represent a car that’s suffered kids jumping on the roof, so I squashed the body in a vice. I cut away the front bumper as per the Ford 103E but glued it back at an angle.
I found the best way to represent dented panels with holes was to grind the inside metal with a ball‑shaped burr tool in a small drill. The die‑cast metal is nearly 2mm thick in places, so grind it until it’s paper thin then push it with a tool to create the dents and creases.
The tyres on two wheels have been removed. To create extra interest, I filed the wheel down to create an impression of the brake drum. Four indents represent the stud holes.
