Hey guys, so after seeing all your incredible work, I've started building a diorama in 1/24 1/25 scale of my garage (modified of course to what I wish it looked like) so being my first go at this I look forward to learning from all your comments and critiscm!

Lol Richard, the floor is Sheetrock for patching walls, I think plaster would have worked better but I had Sheetrock... It didn't spread smooth like I wanted so I actually patched it with grey caulk and smoothed that, which are those lighter spots. Also... Your diorama is the first one here I read an its just incredible! Hopefully mine will come out half as good

And thank you Ed! Yeah I really didn't try to hard on the floor.... I got lucky there lol

Thanks guys!

Little more progress...
I only work on this for about half an hour max usually every night at like 11:30... So it'll be going pretty slow lol

I love that you're building this just like a 1:1 garage!  Keep it going that way, and it will be a contest winner for sure!  If this is a model of your own garage, you have fantastic reference to work from.

 

I'm going to be following this one.
