sometimes an extremely [read: overdone!] detailed diorama takes attention away from the focal point = car.
and you can always add clutter and weathering if you decide it should be that way. nice job.

The nice thing about it not being so cluttered is that I can change the cars and move things around to give it a different look. I can always add more "stuff" when I want. On some of the garages, I could spend at least an hour looking at all of the tiniest details and then notice the car that's there. Thanks for the comments....

First question is: Is this a diorama or a display for your model?
Personally I feel the walls are way to cluttered and take away from the model if this is a display. Just a couple of posters that pertain to the style that you like to build (if you build/display muscle cars, then put up muscle car posters). If a diorama, I would suggest you cut back on the posters and add some other type of things you would find on the walls of a garage. Even if you show how the posters are posted by putting small pieces of tape on the corners and maybe a corner that is missing tape and curling up will add a little personality.
Here are a couple of pics of a garage that I built with many of these ideas. By all means, I don't expect anyone to go as "overboard" as i did to demonstrate clutter in a well used Hobby Garage. Maybe it will give you some ideas though.
Keep up the great work. Please ask if you have any questions on how I may have did something.

To answer your first question, I would have to say "YES" to both of them
Like I had stated in the beginning, my inspiration had come from the Horsepower TV show which is clean and not cluttered (which makes it easier to find things)
By all means, you do very good work with A LOT of detail in your diorama. But, this was also my first attempt and going for the "clean not cluttered" look, which I believe I achieved. I can also put just about any type of car in the garage and it would fit (except a dusenberg)
Thanks for the comments....
