Great looking dio Richard!!! What did you use to make the window frames? Scratchbuilt?? I love the floor and walls. :P :P
Again,what did you use for those also.I can't find anything to use for floors and walls.I am not very good at freehanding it.
Thanks,and I hope you post more progress pics.

Now this is cool. Love your progress so far. I've built a few dios but I have no more room so I think that's it for me. I'll just watch your amazing progress instead, its almost as fun.

thnx :)

finally found something for the walls , the thing is due to the hotrod builds the garage got a bit on the sidetrack ..
also i just was not happy with the walls ..
i just did not have the time and will to make every single stone and build up the walls .. just dont have the time with the hotrod builds , wich are more important and fun for me then the garage ..

today i went to a larger store for glue , styrene , brass and more and found these printed walls (made for train sets) its not just a flat print its a bit 3-d so there are depths in between the bricks ... not a whole lot but enough so it does not look terrible..

they where cheap so i decided to buy some and try it out ..

on the pics i only placed a few loose pieces to see how it looked , not glued or trimmed perfect

with a bit of weathering i think they will look cool

188256_261987050600879_1376211273_n.jpg

so if i paint the pillars metal like and make some cross braces i can make the walls out of these sheets .. could be done even nicer by making the bricks yourself but timewise i'm going to use these

It all looks great Richard !!  With or without the brick. You can see some of my scratch built rock and brick work on page 2 of Dioramas.  They are time consuming tho. Your work looks great !!

as a whole , made sides from ribbed plastic , that actually came from old window blinds for your house ...

the floor will change also just painted that in the beginning will be more detailed , maybe partly tiles

now that the walls are done (base) its really progressing again , still need a ton of detail , also will add more pillars and some cross members pillar floor plates with bolts etc later on

first painted the pillars and wall plating roughly in silver

16359_262571113875806_1038746869_n.jpg

21782_262571100542474_653920989_n.jpg

then weathered all of that and added a thick edge on the wall plates made from styrene

535584_262571130542471_487837007_n.jpg

then painted that edge matt green and also repainted the window frames in that green so it matches and i can use that color on more details , needed to be a color that was not too bright

285314_262571317209119_311018585_n.jpg

really getting that industrial feel i was after now , and with real detail work like piping , real lighting , sockets , bolts etc
it will really come to life more

thnx ..
just the base i want to weather the walls and maybe remove a few bricks and fill them with bondo and make it look like the space is filled with concrete
maybe paint some stones a third color with a small brush

also found some cool stuff to build heaters hanging on the wall

need to ad more pillars on the right wall , some wire cross braces

real lighting

got enough idea;s to keep me going for a while :)
