It's HO 1/87th. the Merc is a Hot Wheels, and the Reaper figure came from Prieser. Don't know who made the building I bought as is.

Got a base made for our mascot.

With these 2 guys also around I don't think anyone would take it.

Possible logo for the shop.

The reaper standing on that pedestal out front is enough to keep most everyone away. Those that made it through then could deal with those biker dudes.

Made a new garage door using twist ties to give it a corrugated look.

Posted Image

Just needs some weathering now when I get it all done.
Posted Image

Also cut the floor, and started the office area. This will be the only part seen through the windows.

Posted Image

Then I decided to open up the front door. This will be ajar as if they are either opening, or closing the shop.

Need opinions, should I leave it as is the original building or add the addition. This is looking from the top, as it would be 2-2 1/4 in's high in the front.

I say go for it........ if you've got room on the street. A custom shop needs lots of work space!
