started some weathering.

first > in real life it looks way less dramatic as on the pics , less black

i washed in all the seems to create more depth , will get some lighter grey tones

also its just a base to build on

did some mild weathering on the bricks and the window frames got a sand on the edges so there are parts of bare wood

today i started the washes on the floor , after i washed the edges on the walls to add depth i needed to make a dark wash for the floor so it was more balanced

47867_264947713638146_742575293_n.jpg

also did some more fith and exhaust gass stains on the walls

11028_264947756971475_1796314366_n.jpg

found a box of tehse plastic things this week and the second i saw them i thought about a big hanging workshop heating system

542773_264947770304807_644645198_n.jpg

i made them thicker by glueing 2 together and make 3 like that and then glue the 3 pieces together

563281_264947853638132_119579446_n.jpg

then used all sorts of misc.. parts from my partsboxes

734915_264947860304798_65691011_n.jpg

added hoses wich will run through a panel i will make in one of the small windows of the most right garage window so they can suck in fresh air

382172_264947840304800_1115203359_n.jpg

then just as a base i sprayed the thing silver

13154_264947913638126_2062669530_n.jpg

painted the house red , gave it some weathering and rust ....

549434_264983296967921_1263898623_n.jpg

painted the bottom openings (biggest one) dark grey inside for more depth

13128_264983270301257_1609196375_n.jpg

will hang here and the hoses will be on a panel i will make in place of the bottom right window

421436_264983276967923_1343781189_n.jpg

a bit of progress , under the heater i will make a frame , for now i hang it up on nails so i can make the frame easyer

also made a busted window and made some glass yellow , only one window in now , need to make the 3 other ones now

on one window i'm planning to make a piece of wood in front so it looks like one window is hammered shut

Just read your Entire thread, the work you are doing is awesome.  I saw the diorama on your other thread with the cool hot rod and loved it, now I fully appreciate it.  I thought I recognized the parts for your shop heater so, I showed them to my wife.  She said they are cassette holders they use in the medical lab.  Neat idea!  Everything is really looking cool, makes me want to do a little more work on my garage.  Thanks for sharing.

Yes probably slides.  I forgot to mention, when I went through your thread looking at all the pictures, I got so caught up in it I almost forgot about the scale.  You are doing a very realistic approach at making it all come alive.  Nice work.

thnx :)

i never have a set plan like most people so it kind of grows and somtimes a build go's in a totally difefrent direction.

the attic i made and spend good time on isnt going in.

instead i'm now planning to make a steel frame attic with like rivets ..

i wanted a real industrial look at a certain point

 

i always loved old industrial buildings and old abandoned building pictures with busted windows and ... so that feel i want to have in this garage the only difference is this is used and not abandoned

made a frame from styrene

533079_265282816937969_1289886765_n.jpg

then added a ribbed section of hard plastic (not styrene)

179689_265282826937968_1403578914_n.jpg

used some bolts from those toy finger skateboards , my son had a whole bunch of those bolts


58792_265282843604633_1456059664_n.jpg

painted and weathered the frame , the bolts actually are tight in the wood and hold the frame

525056_265282856937965_1306634237_n.jpg

19815_265282866937964_1464212772_n.jpg

with the unit

538346_265282883604629_1458709812_n.jpg

also added bolts

13226_265282903604627_1411759207_n.jpg

the bolts do give a great realism effect

539766_265282913604626_1082241780_n.jpg

164407_265282930271291_384455822_n.jpg

then did the rest of the windows

altered 2 cheap poles , before and after

226907_265325783600339_1073984450_n.jpg

made caps on them with some radom caps out of the partsbox

419190_265325793600338_1893969719_n.jpg

307324_265325776933673_1186866612_n.jpg

layer of base paint

535598_265325876933663_476126157_n.jpg

lighted

551308_265325860266998_182757909_n.jpg

some weathering and made the caps green and added some rust

64575_265325850266999_552675257_n.jpg

521292_265325916933659_2092630963_n.jpg

179671_265325926933658_1926919009_n.jpg

I just read the entire thread and enjoyed seeing the design change and take shape.  Lots of fun!  And now you have a great back drop to photograph your models.

thnx guys ..
well yes i left it alone for a while , i just could not find the right feel and look ..
and surely after a while when i started again its just came natural ..
also i have experimented a lot with weathered metal paint and now have a decent enough tenchnique

first i was working with wood and tbh that was not the look i was after for a greasy garage ...so i myself are pretty pleased with the way its heading atm

and yes you always get inspired by others , thats the fun of seeing other threads > you learn a lot by just seeing whats possible

just testing to put some open doors in there

734028_265717090227875_595083289_n.jpg

59733_265717170227867_204824412_n.jpg

the wide edge of the railing on the attic will get some hotrod related logos and brands with decals

started some of the electrical wires , made a master switch first , like a emergency power stop

421939_265868253546092_776464586_n.jpg

added wires to the lights , i will add vrakets so the light fixtures look bolted to the wall instead of just going in the wall like atm

558038_265868280212756_1399769702_n.jpg

23386_265868260212758_1670582343_n.jpg

power to the heating system (that also will get some gass lines attached)

164483_265868296879421_541598897_n.jpg

some weathering

574941_265868336879417_1321280282_n.jpg

didnt do to much today , just made a second wall socket and next to the 2 i then had made lightswitches ..
they are so tiny i can place 4 on one fingernail so making a tumble switch was a but tricky so i used a pin and i think it looks quite nice right ??

406224_266415213491396_886874267_n.jpg

put a revell decal on the doors window

the rolling door will also get way more detail like pinlocks , hinges and a mechanism
