Yeah that's it, except the body of the car will be red.

 

Hey ! How did you do that? Make everything black and white except the car... ?

.

Yeah, just a quick job in Photoshop. I sloppily highlighted the car and cut it, Then converted the photo to black and white and pasted the car back in.

 

Should be fun building the garage in B&W!

WOW, those are very helpful.  I'm making a list of junk I need to put in the garage.  Pictures like this give me some ideas.

 

THANK YOU !!

A few years ago, one of the guys around here built a diorama in an old TV set that looked like a black-and-white gangsters show set in the 1930s. VERY cool.

 

This will be good, too, and I'll look forward to watching it develop.

Yeah Crank,

OK, OK, I got the outside walls up.  But it's time to knock it off and spend time with the family.

It's a beauty, and I like the cut angles.  They really help with the viewing area.  Sure, have fun with the family and the friends, it's not like it's Xmas eve or anything like that. :lol:

That looks like one of the pictures I took of it. I never found out who built that (I think it was one of the Classic Plastic guys), but it's really impressive.

The next thing to do is decide on what colors to use.  I only need two, a light and a dark color.  After some experimentation I decised on an antique white and a dark charcoal gray.

The walls came out to about 16 feet high.  I thought they were too high and I shortened them to 10 feet.  Which is more like the garage I remember from back in my childhood, 1950's.

Man, that's looking good but you are going to need lots of white paint.

Very nice wood-working.

 

I would suggest Krylon or a similar antique white or ivory as a way to paint that massive area economically as the base color, with details picked out by gray spray and brush paint.

Thanks Charlie, good suggestion.  However, I want to be able to blend and shade using alcohol so I'm using brushed on acrylic for everything. 

Later I'll show how well alcohol blends in acrylic paint.

I downloaded some pictures of a drill press. And then I built this. A table top drill press.

As it turned out, I felt the drill press looked a little too large for a bench top style. I think I made it a tiny bit too large.

So I decided to convert it to a floor model.

It looks much better as a floor model !!

So everything will be in a muted color so that the build in the center pops big time eh?

I think I need to add some of my Charcoal color, but I'm not sure how I'm going to proceed.  I'm still experimenting.

 

As you can see I already darkened up the workbench.

Need Your Help.

 

What material is good to use for 1/25th scale tarps? I know how to make a tarp, but I'm not sure what material to use. What has worked well for you?

 

And Is there some kind of material that can be used without soaking it in a glue mixture?

A material that will drape over the car in a natural way without the glue?

 

Thanks.
