Photoshop Chop   |   Air-Cooled   |   Coachbuilt


It’s been a while since I published my last photoshop chop. In the last couple of weeks, I was busy building 1:24 scale models for the model show in Jabbeke. The show has been canceled due to the Corona virus, unfortunately. Yesterday, I wanted to work on a woody conversion of an early 1950’s Mercedes-Benz, but a friend of mine from the air-cooled club asked me to submit a picture for a virtual meet. Well, then… a virtual model ist what I submitted today. I adapted the woody wagon body onto a Volkswagen Beetle and the result looks somewhat convincing, I hope. I extended the wheelbase a little bit to accomodate four doors.

Once finished with the conversion, I couldn’t help myself and stayed awake another hour or so to create a customized version. It features a Deutz luftgekühlt badge and several period-correct stickers. Chrome steelies, raked stance and a Union76 antenna ball add to the old-school vibe on the vehicle. It was a lot of fun creating this little woody.

Station Service Ouverte France | Drive-by Snapshots by Sebastian Motsch (2013)

Lost Places   |   Rust in Peace


Yesterdays’ post featured a small service station that went out of business, but isn’t fenced off or has a sign saying so. The story today is different. You are looking at pictures of a substantially bigger service station that, for lack of a better word, is closed. Nonetheless, it does sport a sign saying: Station Ouverte.

To tell you the honest truth – this place looked like a film set straight out of a zombie movie! The lack of traffic, heavy clouds and a slight drizzle didn’t make it any more friendly or welcoming!

Modern Garage CHalus France | Drive-by Snapshots by Sebastian Motsch (2009)

Lost Places   |   Rust in Peace


September 2009. Late afternoon, somewhere in rural France. Running low on fuel, we were looking for a service station to fill up the trusty Mercedes. Eventually we found a station just before sunset – and right next to it one of those places that are well and truly lost in time. The overall impression didn’t really match the name of the place – Modern’ Garage. It might have been modern when the sign-writer painted the letters on the front wall decades ago. Peeking inside, we spotted a seemingly brand new Ford Escort Mk3 and many parts boxes of the same period. Around the back I found a Renault 5 Mk2, a pre-facelift Renault 21 and a Peugeot 403. I intended to take a few pictures, but a rather unfriendly dog reminded convinced me that I really wanted to cover many more kilometers before nightfall…
