Any pictures of wrecked models. Such as a car getting creamed by a 18
wheeler. Do people still do this type of thing.

I used to make a huge effort to recreate actual battle damage on models and as much realistic wear and tear as posssible.I dont anymore all my models are as they were when driven off the lot ................

I was going to try and heat a car or whatever with a hair dryer and then press it against the bumper, etc of the truck to get the appropriate t-bone effect to the panels. but then I never finish a kit so I never go that far....

Well, I don't know about going that far, but as a kid I used to use really heavy aluminum foil and burnish it on fenders and doors, then cut it out, cut the fender or door off, glue and paint to match then run some thing else into it. Looked realistic to me anyway. Haven't done that in a while though. I did do a rusted out 55 Chevy Pickup, can post pics on a.b.m.s. if you want to see.

There are many methods to depict damage as mentioned here.
Now, if you want to depict damage to the people involved, you get some hamburger......
Oh, never mind! It's like summoning up some evil spirt that stepped in it's own crap one too many tmes. :-)

Modelers still do this. However, almost *all* of them are under twelve years old. Unless you are doing a diorama of a *specific* event, for the purposes of seriously telling a *specific* story, and for a reason that will be for more than just the "shock value"; then it might be best to just hang out with the aforementioned under-twelve-year-olds. An example of a serious reason, might be a three-dimensional rendition of a series of photographs that recorded a deadly automobile accident; to be used in a DARE class.

I did the same thing with the aluminum foil. You can even create the inside pattern oh the hood seperately. glue together, bend and fold it in a collision type dent. Et presto. True looking collision damage.
You can never get these realistic results just by heating and bending the kit plastic.

I made a Car I was working on that I wanted to be on a trailer behind of another car. I wanted it to look just as though it had been kept in a Junk Yard maybe for several years. I left out all of the windows and made the interior real dirty and had some rusted engine parts and other stuff inside the car.
I had primed the shell and put lots of different sized Dots of Liquid Mask on top of the Wet Paint. After the Primer had dried I painted it Gloss Black then when that was dry I Dulled it up with a sanding cloth and lots of dry brushing.
Thanks to having built many Armor kits that was very easy to make it look Old.
Next I took a hobby blade and a pair of pointed tweezers and opened up all of those "Mask Bubbles" underneath the paint to make it look very blistered and badly worn. Then a final touch up with just a little more dry brushing and it was done it came out looking really great too.
