hey guys whell after the hotrod garage and the old gasstation diorama and not building anything this summer , it started to ich :)
 
so i started a new base for a garage , all made from old stuff i had lying around ..
 
old wood base with side of old flooring laminate

decided this one should have like a separate office and i thought it would be cool to put in 3 windows and then on the inside make like a wall with big windows so the light shines in

today i painted the floor with multiple layers untill i got this effect wich i liked , now this is a more modern looking garage in comparison to the hotrod garage i did .. but not hyper modern ..
i want to keep this one cleaner but still apply some weathering to bring it alive , will be much milder then the other one ...
 
after the floor i used old ribbed plastic window blinds for the lower side like some sort of high kick panel to protect the walls against weld sparks and damage ....
 
above that a edge from real hard wood wich i stained with wood stain
 
on top of that to get a smooth wall base where i can work on ... old smooth plastic window blinds

10612751_504820899650825_311722195945031
 
now i would have to make window frames , walls , a attic with stairs .. and loads of stuff .. will be putting in a lot of detail and machines and stuff
 
this one basicly will be 100% scratch build from garage to tools and machines ... where i will use as much old scrap stuff as possible ...
 
its just a start all still rough

thnx guys , well went for kind of the 60's style ... made a checkered edge ... not really my style , i just love the old buildings and weathered stuff .. but i just wanted to make something different this time ...

 

printed the checkers in the right size on regulair a4 paper cut them out and glued them on the wall , the left side in the pic below has one coat of gloss clear over it , this really makes the black more black and gives it a shine ... later i will give them a second coat .. after this its sealed and doesnt look like paper anymore ..

simple and cheap :)

thnx guys and yes well maybe only a black and white tile floor where the office / chill earea will be . all over might be a bit over the top ...

 

i just made the first wooden surround in the window openings , later i will make windowframes with windows , maybe make them so they are a tad opened ..

just finished the rest of the windows and added the stands below at the wall , those are just there because i only had short pieces of the ribbed stuff , so i hat to hide some seams , later with dres up and benches / machines .. it will tie in i think

thnx kenneth :)

 

now thinking where i can get some nice material to use as glass windows .. packaging stuff ususally isnt bright enough , good for a weathered diorama but on this one i need crisp windows .. oh well i'm sure i will find something :)

Hi Richard,

 

after you awesome Hot Rod Diorama i will watch your progress again. What goal did you follow? Old and dirty or shiny?
