Nice job on the bench! You are making this look so real I can't believe my eyes.
1/24-25 hotrod garage diorama
Posted 27 February 2013 - 05:33 AM
also want to make cartboard boxes and stuff .. so much in my head that still needs to ome out lol
today continued the storage room and attic i wanted some doors and used the pieces that where suppost to go on my opel blitz coe truck , since i build that as a hotrod truck i had these to play with
they where to small in width so i used some styrene
placed them opened up like this
painted the doors green and the hinges steel , and modiefied the stairs so they steps are now level ..
i'm happy with the result these are all cut pieces from the big attic i first made
set in place
then called a mechanic to screw a piece of diamond plate on top
in the beginning i made a scratch build colom drill and grind/polisher , now thinking where to place them and make a base plate and get some powerlines to them and make a biymore detail like switches

strated to scratch build a cabinet to hang above the workbench , used steel pins as knobs for the doors
and again placed the doors slightly open for that extra dimension
did the cabinet red , its real fireengine red but due to the evening pics it looks real dull
also did the workbench red , not completly , just a mix
strated some piping , its the first rough placement , where the pipes meet i will make a sleeve and i will make a shutter with turnwheel and some brakets
the reason the rear inside was not painted > placed some diamond plate in there to ad some bling ..
its all filthy and weathered and now i'm at the point where every now and then i will ad some more shiney things to balance it out a bit
my 1/24 employees are present

finished the cabinet and weathering , ooks a bit blue on the pics but its not irl , needs more tones over the grey but thats a job i will do all at ounce
then changed the floor and made it look like big concrete plates
black in the edges

did a nother round on the red cabinet , the workbench , desk and heater
first used some dark wood-stain (clear) on the wooden tops and those really popped and came to life.
then did some clear on all the red parts wich also did a lot
and last used some matt black over the previous grey i put on it as weathering so there where to tones of darked grease and filth dirt
the attic was a bit blend with the silver and green so i redid the railing with real wood and used wood tstain on that as well
will make a raling along the stairs in the same style with wood on top
and made some more magazines , now did the classic hotrod issues from back in the day

thnx for the awsome comment
made a storage peice for teh grease barrels , i want to make some sort of pump with lines so they can get grease there
painted it red first
and added a large valvoline decal en "some" grease
i also bought a desk a while ago , it said 1/24 but was way to wide for the scale so i cut that in half in lenght
then used the 2 parts like this to make a narrower long workbench , added a small pillar in themiddle for strenght and a new pillar under the colkomn drill , left overs from the altered lanterns on the wall
the drill with real drill bit , will get all new paint from top to bottom
will place it like this when finished
made a door front with knob and added a wooden top out of 3 strips of wood and painted it with wood stain

Simply remarkable. The details are the stars and they really shine here.

Keep up the great work.

finished the second bench ,polisher and drill , gave them a new green coat of paint , weathered them with black and rust en a bit of clear so there is some shine
then used one half of a aeroplane bomb and made a sleeve on the pipes so its thicker and added a shutter wheel
its high up but thats because the building had previous uses and thats from the early days
the black i put on the pipes looked terrible so i painted them green
then painted the shutter wheel red , thats actually a steering wheel from a formula one car (smaal size was perfect).
i just removed one center spoke and made teh edge ribbed
added a powerline to the drill
some brackets on the piping and rusted them a bit in places made it so the rust runend down along the wall
all together shot

Great stuff Richard !! I definitely want you on my team !!!!

Great stuff Richard !! I definitely want you on my team !!!!
hey thnx !! and what team do you mean ????
i will add a ton of tiny details like rattle cans , tin cans , boxes , tools etc etc
so i thought i'd start making some stuff inbetween the bigger items
first made a wooden shelf above the left bench , i will add a nother one next to it and maybe 2 higher up , why will be clear in this post so i can fill them with smalls
luckely i found a trophy in my partsbox , it needed to be glued together i got that from some partsboxes i got from a friend who didnt used the stuff , glued it together and painted it gold > so i already got a price hahaha
the base will be black later on
then went wild and scratched these tiny cans
and sprayed a bucket out of the fujimi kit silver (so didnt made that myself)
painted the cans orange and glued them in place
here you can see how cool it will be with filled shelfs of tiny things , so that will grow in time from here on

Good looking progress Richard. Are you planning on putting the tool box that's on the floor on a table or cabinet? I know I would get a sore back leaning down all the time to get a particular tool.
Posted 02 March 2013 - 09:18 AM
yes that is just sitting there for now , so much to make still
atm building a rolling table for parts and stuff
first hang some big vintage posters on the left wall , need some pins or maybe a frame to make it more real
