Hi fellas.....thought I'd post my WIP garage dio. It's a 1920's building converted to a repair garage. The time frame is the late 50's. It's modeled after an inner city garage, like something you might find in New York.

..the basic concept....

...thanks guys, appreciate the nice comments!

...Vaughn, the over all size is 25"L X 12"W X 10"H, and the brick work is foam board. I'll post some pics.

...John, the handles are from Ozark Miniatures, their white metal castings. The plumbing is styrene tubing and the plumbing connections are resin casts of Ozark Miniatures boiler parts.

...thanks fellas!

...this project got started after I saw 'philbass's' tutorial on his foam board brick work. Never really considered foam board as a dio material before. But after seeing what he did I had to give it a try.

..thanks Jim and Mike! I'm having a blast with this dio and learning a lot as I go along. This will probably be an on going project for a long time. I'd like to really detail the heck out of it. Try some new things like electrical outlets and conduit, some air lines and hoses, plus all the little stuff, boxes, oil cans, tools and etc.

Very nice! Great attention to detail... the rust on the I-beams, the bricks, the rafters... it all looks very convincing.

I am probably the only one that noticed the brick work is excellent ,the plumbing looks great ,the beams and rafters are spot on over all a very realistic diorama I look forward to seeing this progress and please keep the how tos coming it is always cool to see how you approach these different aspects. and the weathering is top notch. :rolleyes:
