Run-down service garage

Recommended Posts

Been a long while since I was "chased" off these forums, but I am building an old abandoned garage facade and came here to not only show my work, but to get some inpriation as well.

Scale: 1/12

Back at the workbench for the first time in 4 months. Going for a busted down gas station complete with a totally scratch build garage door!

Estimated time of completion? 2016 probably.....lol

Started framing the garage door. Most of this will be hidden, but it's gotta be legit

Cut out the wood for the door, has to be the most even cutting I've done yet.

Mocked up the door tonight. Won't have that big a gap at the finish, just not ready to install yet. Will add a bigger header above to hide any gaps. Still needs details of course

Got some details up on the door. Now I just need to connect them together and get them lined up just right

HAD to get some paint on this thing. This is just the base coat. Experimenting with crackle medium but it's not working how I want it to, so we'll see

Messy paint intentional...lol

Busted out the sanding drum on the Dremel along with some hand sandpaper to get the wear and tear started.

Bottoms of garage doors get the most abuse, so rounded off the bottom a bit and made it uneven

Same with thresholds.

Well that took about a month....lol

Got the preliminary awning up over the door. Need to fix up the galvanized roof. Also added drip strip above garage door. Needs weathering still.

Started on an ice merchandiser tonight. Going to be a challenge from wood, but I am testing my skills at making wood look like metal....lol. I have some wood putty for any gaps once the glue dries. Still need to add the door and condenser on top. #patience

Also added some ground posts in front of the garage frame.

This is Great! I need a door for my shop, and still have to weather the exterior walls. Mind if I use you ideas? :)

Thanks for the inspiration!

I kind of like your security system....one huge muscle bound super hero type is bound to deter a lot of would-be bad guys.

The X-Men franchise must be running out of gas if Wolverine has nothing better to do than hang out in front of shabby garages. :rolleyes:

It's what he does for fun in his down-time.
