well fellers, hope yer havin fun with yer Deetroyt alley gayrage, coz I sure as.. uh,--shoes!--am
havin fun with my gayrage/body shop. Wowser! good thing I gots the obsessive compulzive dizodor! :lol: ;) coz that's purty much how I gets anyting doned. Yeah, George, I figgered I'd best build up the main building to see how much real estate I'm gonna need, coz Gramps tole me it was gonna be one big sumbitch - and darntootin if'n he waren't right! Guess you speak from experience Gramps, and us young punks oughta listen -the first time!
Wellsir, I think I'ma gonna hafta take up stakes and move this here boy. Aint nuff room in these here parts o Deetroyt :D fer yer alley gayrage & my body shop. I'm plannin on using the homosote (dont say a freakin word! ;) ) as a base for my gay--..I mean body shop, and I'm gonna mount it on a roll around cabinet, even if'n I gots to make one. I'll be able to store my 125 kits underneath and move it around for photo shoots. Just before I made that decide, I figgered I'd best measure it coz I'm gonna hafta move at some point and sure would be nice if'n it'll fit thru a door :D . The base measures 27"x41". Lotsa room for lotsa 125s. Gots tons of pix so far. Gotta load em up and start my own dio-thread. See yinzes there :D

:huh: Well,######'n It lookin pretty true to the original pic, But it really should have that addition to be perfect! Why cantcha just make yer doors bigger so's you can rollthe display from room to room?Or better yet jus build you an addition so's you can have a room jus fer yer models? that way you can have a place to sleep after "Honey Doo" throws ya outa the house fer tearin up all the doorways!Just a suggestion, cas I don't wanna see ya sleepin outside.Unless you LIKE campin out! :huh:

Well it took a little trial and error, but I think I got what I was looking for on the paint. A little tan enamel on the base brown and then some transparent bronze lacquer over it and it turned out looking like old siding. :huh: :huh: :blink:

'Honey Doo' done did dat 5 years ago with 2 of the local police officers. Tha's how I wound up back in the big ol empty house I growed up in, (well, pysically growed up in anywho :huh: ) Been a ruff time, but friends like you & Gramps, & Florian, and the Good Lord, have got me almost sane now :huh: and I guess since I'm almost ok, I can handle a move. :D My mom is gonna sell the place and me & my rats gotta find a new hole to crawl into. I do like your suggestion bout makin the doors bigger. :blink: You sound like a model railroader.
I am gonna add something to the main building but I doubt it'll be the big addition, maybe a paint booth? Nice thing bout the diorama is it's a nice looonnnngggg work in progress.

######'n, You never cease to amaze me. :o :o That dio is way cool. You're doin a hell of a job bud. I see nothing wrong with usin homosote for a base. The nice thing usin it is, if you want to drill holes for some trees or something, it'll hold them. It takes paint good but it needs some latex first to seal it, or you better have lots and lots of paint. :huh: :huh: :blink:

:huh: why does it NOT strike me as odd that the ######'n is usein somethin called homo? The reason(i think) that Bill is hittin on all cylinders is because if'n you seen ONE ghetto alley gayroge,you seen em all!!!But to be honest ######'n he really IS my big Brudder what ran away from home when he was a wee yout! He din't wanna grow up inna house wit 4 screwy sisters, like he lefted me to do!!!! :huh: :blink:

Gramps is right Clay, the dio can be addictive, and good. Specially when yer workbench looks like yours.........NORMAL, like all the rest of us's workbenchs. :lol: But the cool thing bout the dio, and it aint gotta be hugeass like mine,(Gramps tried to warn me) just a place to show off the model. You'll find ya want to work on the dio, and then you'll wanta work on the model - so you can put the model on the dio!! and on and on,

Clay, I'd venture to say your work area is no worse than most of us guys. ;) :huh: You should see mine, at least you have room to move things. Mine is 5"x8" and it's crammed all the way to the ceiling. There is one thing though, I have a 20x24 garage that is my other work shop, so that's where I do a lot of the bigger work. :D :lol: :lol:
