Hi Elden and List Members,
 
Maybe two decades back, I did this gon (photo attached). Not specifically damaged, but definitely beat up and at the end of its lifetime. I generally liked the end result. Haven't tried to do this again since, but I'm looking forward to maybe doing another similar car. There isn't a specific prototype for this gon, I was experimenting and just playing around testing out some model techniques. This is N scale, by the way.

I wish I could find the photos, but I haven’t yet.  I used to have a collection of pics of gons damaged by loads.  One was a gon badly damaged from someone dropping a big piece of steel inside.  Smashed through the flooring, damaging the stringers, etc.  Anyone have that pic?

 

I have tried to replicate them in model form.

 

I mean, you gotta have damaged, even destroyed gons, right?

 

Can anyone share their pics of proto or model damaged gons?  TIA!
