I've started building a 1/24 scale junkyard based loosely on Old Car City in Northwest Georgia. I'm well along on the scratch-built barn and base. Just getting started on making some cars appear rusted or "barn-find" condition.
While looking for junkyard pieces, I came across a 3D printed 1/24 scale oil bottle rack. The second photo is the oil bottle rack painted and sign added now in my gas station / body shop scale diorama. It's under the window, next to the tire.

Added some details to my junkyard diorama. Built my first 1/24 scale tree. Scratch built a Delco battery, creeper, BBQ grill and a toolbox. Put up some signs. Working now on a classic Lincoln to give it serious junkyard patina.

Having some fun developing my junkyard diorama build. I added a couple details inside the outhouse. wink Added signs along the fence and made a couple more old batteries. A worn out Lincoln has found a home next to the Willys.

Watch a short video of the junkyard fence row as it's coming along.

I've got my scale junkyard diorama mostly put together, although I figure I'll swap out cars and add details as I feel like it in the future.

Here's a link to a new one minute "walk-through" of the junkyard as it is now, including an inside view.

Added more lighting to my '53 Buick dealer 1/24 scale diorama. Here's a link to a 45 second video of a tour of the service garage, gas pumps, used car lot and showroom at night.
