Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. I've been wanting to do a shadowbox garage scene dio for a while. I finally found a box. Good size. Plenty of room for two models. Hobby Lobby item, its got a nice patina. In scale, the interior dimensions are 31.2 feet long and 14.5 feet deep and high. The plan is to do a lighted garage scene with a crawl space above for storage. Rather than do the bare framed garage, I've decided to do the garage that's been plywood sheathed. One window, double barn doors, concrete floor, one door. I'll be using washes to get an aged patina on the wood, with color added to break up the "man that's a lot of wood". The walls are basswood over foam core. The foam core will give me some depth for the windows and doors as well as a support for the ceiling which will be framed out to look realistic. I cut out templates from poster board for each wall and then cut the foam core and added the basswood over that. I'm gonna need to get some resin garage pieces or a Fujimi garage set. Here's where I'm at so far.
