An Australian hobbyist is taking the car modeling world by storm with his incredibly detailed die-cast ‘wrecks.’

After more than a decade in car sales, Scott Fuller changed career path and headed into the mining industry, but he needed an outlet for the petrol still flowing through his veins.

Inspired by an aging model of a Holden Monaro that used to sit on his office desk, Fuller decided to take a new model and see if he could replicate the real-world look of a classic car that’s seen better days.

They’re so good, even a lucrative mining job may go by the wayside as this ‘side business’, Custom Wrecks, grows.
