Inspired by another blog I've found a solution to creating scatter terrain for my Second World War games in the Far East in places like Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaya and Burma. A step by step post on how I converted a Lledo Dennis van is here Die cast vehicles as scatter terrain

Excellent job.

Spray cans work fine of decals but use a couple light coats or the liquid spray will wash off the ink!

Decal papers come in clear and white so you can do a white background.

If you want a gloss vehicle, use a gloss white primer, it works better for automobiles that are not dull army or commercial trucks.

Great article.

Very nice!
I will have to keep my eyes open for 19302 vehicles that will fit in with my 28 mm figures,
While Europe in 1944-45 was dominated by vehicles in military livery, other times and places would have seen civilian vehicles as scatter terrain (as you said), vehicles requisitioned into military service, or maybe even situations where patriotic owners were helping out for a day moving troops and equipment.
