also got some cool lighting effects with the windows
attic set up
weathered the windows with peeled of paint effects and made asome stairs
then got a fujimi garage kit for free from a guy and started to build part of it already
primered the lot
and added railings
painted the engine mouth and put a engine on it

desided to use a window (bought that in a shop and is from modeltrains in the g scale)
and make a rolling garage door (static not really movable)
banana for a scale / size idea
the primered door
then weathered the door drasticly

hmm why not make a whole new work bench and use real wood
added a vice
then desided to change the attic and i will have to build new stairs , maybe a small office on the left
then started painting the bridge
boring desk and chair
same idea as the work bench

then painted the fire extinguisher , small grease barrells , toolbox
then painted the first floor set up (more will follow later)
thats where i'm at right now , atm i'm rebuilding some earlyer build hotrods , after that i will continue the dio..
with the ammount of detail i have planned i have a lot of work still on this dio
i have only build half of the garae tool kit , still have engine hoist , jacks , all the wrenched en more , i want real lighting in the dio , better walls (maybe brick)
powerlines and just all the details you can think of , so where i'm at now i see as maybe half way / the base

Great looking diorama Richard... working on something like this makes you want to keep adding more and more details doesn't it...???
and yes it does , it started out as a .... what should we call it fun project and something to shoot future builds in and before i knew it i turned into way more ..
in fact for me what i have now is still the base .. so much work to do still (witch is good building it is the fun of it)
and yes when i started more idea's kept flowing ..
at one point i desided to ease down on the rough stuff and build some small stuff just so i can get a better idea of the scale and proportions..
the plans was to scratch as much as possible until a guy who stopped with his hobby seold me his airbrush for a friends price..
when i got there to pick it up he gave me the fujimi garage tool fit for free and i must say its so fileld and full of detail , still have enough to assemble from that kit
i also got filled parts boxes all kinda hotrod related ..
but yes i have so much plans still ..and its su nuch fun , when i finish this (no hurry at al) i will def. build more dioramas , they def. will be way smaller then this one

and @ helix normal size banana they are just littke people lolz(no offense ment to little people)
and @ charlie , the walls are like soft foam plates i found on a construction site in the dumster (lol)
there are even better options blue hard foam plates that you can inscribe stomes or anything in and seal and paint

if you ask me the key is when you build it and place it in a diorama to glue it on the floor if you want a car on it , then it cant flex , the floorplate is really thin and that allows flexing
