Here is the start of one of the largest dioramas that I have done. Most of them are about 11 X 11 but this one is going to be about 19 X 11. Here is what I've done so far. The wall frames are up and some foam boards have been cut. They are for a brick wall about 4 feet tall. Then going to simulate dry wall rest of the way up. Not sure what I am going to do with the floor so I will leave that til later when I have a better idea. In the corner there is going to be an office with storage on top for parts and what nots. This will be my first attempt at making stairs. Any ideas or tips on how to do that ?

Well after some time away working on other garages for people I finally got some ME time ! After looking at Crazy Richard's 1/24-25 hotrod garage post I really got the urge to work on mine again. Since the last post I have worked on the office, lunch room on top of the office, some pillars and a few other things. I started the brick walls along with the wooden pillars but this is where I am stuck at. I am not sure on which way to go with them. First I was thinking of doing half with brick , black stripe and white. Then I thought to just stain them or maybe just paint them black. For now I am going to stop with them until I figure it out. OH of course any ideas are welcome.

Keep going, Keith. I like what you're doing. I have years and years and years of parts I've been saving for a garage diorama. Maybe your build will be the push I need to build one too.
