because i dont want to use to much that is recognisable from the fujimi kit i used the shelf case and made that into a rolling table with turning wheels and a real wooden top

started the detail on the rolling table , some wrenches and files and a oil can

482764_268646463268271_1984060765_n.jpg

then put a wrench set on it painted that red and with a wooden pin made the sockets and ....? chrome (one cast piece from fujimi)

394639_268646443268273_1264186079_n.jpg

then the mechanic came by and grrrr he made a right mess of it , spilled oil out of the can

577401_268646466601604_736340302_n.jpg

did 3 more oil cans from the fujimi kit , one red and yellow one on the left shelf and a green one in the hanging closet / cubbord (?)
and painted the oil catch funnel

thnx :) and i have a nothe one
 
btw on some zoomed in pics it seems very dirty but overall its not that extreme .. thats always the issue with making close-ups i guess :)

i made a small cartbord nox on the rolling worktable

557896_268759556590295_342223230_n.jpg

421431_268759546590296_562524708_n.jpg

with a pen as reference for the scale / size

226425_268759566590294_194927697_n.jpg

then made a larger cartbox box on the bench with a carb plate in it

417723_268759629923621_2027717647_n.jpg

581655_268759653256952_1486084331_n.jpg

then totally changed the grease tray , made 2 larger sections with black mesh and so now the greese barrels can sit on the left and when i made a big oil drum it can sit on the right

182427_268759609923623_977947921_n.jpg

734511_268759613256956_621195102_n.jpg

the glued some brass and plastic tubes in the barrels so i can use that as base for a pump system

thnx thomas :)
 
you know how it is sometimes it takes a while before you find the right look and feel ... and since i never have a fixed plan when building something :P

i was lucky today found a hudge model house in a build skip thats ment as a example for builders to show potential buyers
i ripped of a few parts .. most will be used in a new diorama , when this one is finished want to make a more modern looking garage especially for taking pics of my completed models , this one is to detailed and it only distracts
so those parts will become a photoboot garage

555089_269163423216575_1699657661_n.jpg

then a got a package a guy milled a tiny ford hotrod for me this will sit in the garage , how cool is that

63991_269163483216569_146583172_n.jpg

480757_269163503216567_275177779_n.jpg

cut a cubbord to size and i will make a wooden top on that and place the rod (then painted) on the cubbord

535583_269163519883232_918041552_n.jpg

yesterday i started a oil catch cart for cars on the bridge

602753_269163359883248_1859812811_n.jpg

thnx !!
and yes the fujimi kit is def a must for a garage , the tools would be hard to make right and get them to look decent
i do have the drive to change as much as possible waht i use from the kit ..
so far most is sratchbuild and some things have junk , fujimi kit parts and styrene in them lol

painted the mini rod , the black needs tyding up when the red is dry but i;m very happy with the result uing a small pin
i was even able to paint the windows , rims and grille just usd chrome for all those parts

first made the file cabinet where the rod will sit on
made doorknobs and a real wooden top

finished the oil catcher cart

482610_269590353173882_222263171_n.jpg

painted and weathered the oil drum (made out of 3 rims)

420333_269590343173883_517956429_n.jpg

finetuned the paint on the minirod and put pinstripe decals on the file cabinet , will get some clear so the silvering is gone and the cabinet shines

226592_269590379840546_1885762895_n.jpg

pinstripes op de kast , komt nog een laagje clear over dan glimt de kast en zijn de randjes vd decal niet meer zo zichtbaa

421957_269590416507209_52422903_n.jpg

volgende op de aganda is een grote kast boven waar nu de grote poster hangt en daar werkplaatsboeken en catalogussen in zetten

Richard,  in the USA your fire extinguisher would be mounted right next to the exit door. That's so someone wouldn't be running deeper into the building to get it if there was a fire.  There would also be two extinguishers, one chemical and one water.   Nitpicking!   :rolleyes:

hey guys thnx !!!
and well yes the fire extinguisher issue sounds logical yes :) didnt really put in a lot of thought , well maybe i will scratch some new ones (this one was from the fujimi kit)




yesterday i made a standing closet / file ... upstairs

208588_269979166468334_743695571_n.jpg

3514_269979133135004_1580865388_n.jpg

most of my pictures are shot in the evening when its dark , while im building
on some the weathering might come across real extreme ..
now i do want a dirty and lived garage but this pics i took when i came home just now and are lighter .. on these you can see its not that extreme at least thats what i think
you should see the garage at my work (transport company and maintenance of big machines and loaders) thats 3 times as dirty hahaha

wel i got stuck a bit , i want to add more machines but i have this massive floorspace but putting them on the floor would look wird maybe ..
so i'm planning to make a stone wall in the middle of the garage with a wide passage door , hen on both sides i can place more machines and stuff ..

thats the issue when you start building without a plan :) lol


so for now continued some smaller details

> put 2 small speakers on the hanging cabinet and under the cabinet i made a head-unit

> on the rolling work / parts table i hung a dirty cloth (on the handle)

> and made 2 wooden shelfs next to the wall cabinet

549229_270122309787353_1260953805_n.jpg

made the base and iside of the cup on the cabinet black and put a 300 sl badge on the wooden shelf , not real hotrod but i liked it..
car nuts like more cars then hotrods only

382360_270122303120687_1475278347_n.jpg

581828_270122366454014_1914089370_n.jpg

made the wood draker and stained it

601195_270122359787348_1131807397_n.jpg

btw my garage isnt your maintenance type its more like so-cal , just a speedshop where they build rods

made a lower small wall from styrene with brickwork on it , maybe i will make a second one , this alows me to build more amchines and place them there and create like a machine shop area but still keep a overall clear vieuw

first draft / base

31934_270621216404129_1584487692_n.jpg

wood on top

430684_270621209737463_616074716_n.jpg

some wood stain and wall weathering , the white edges will get some paint as well

549871_270621226404128_898444644_n.jpg

some pics with staff and rod , the glossy clothes on the staff is due to halogen lighting above the rable , that makes everything shine :) irl they are not glossy
