Garage that will never be finshed

Recommended Posts

This was on the old board and someone was asking where they all went.  HerE is mine.  I wasn't smart enough to keep it small.   I got tons of junk to put in here.   The rusty hood is a a hood off a 66 Nova.  It disappeared in the trunk of my car.  I found it years later UNDER the spare tire with this nice coating of real rust on it.  I drag it out and take photos of models once in a while.  Built to resemble a friends garage I used to work on his race car in.  Needs to be mounted to a piece of plywood and some gluing done on the walls again.  The tool box deal in teh corner is all one piece.  All the BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH is glued to it.  The whole thing removes as one piece.

The walls look very realistic, well done.  I love all the little details, especially that bench grinder.

Very cool!

I like the prototypical construction style.

That was always a favorite little piece of mine as well.  And a very important piece in the garage this is loosely based on.   We used a bench grinder to make/modify a lot of parts on a street stock racer back in the 90s.  I think it was a R&D Unique piece - they had some great stuff.  Wish I had more.

From 7th grade shop class, we had to build something similar, and from building walls in real renovations... shoulda run conduit through the studs... Someday.

Randy, the inside of the wooden walls are very convincing. Lots of detail that looks gorgeous.

May I ask whether you built the bench grinder yourself or did you buy that? And did you use real wood for the bench? And how did you stain the bench?

It looks really realistic! I'm excited to see the next update. Juergen

the grinder is an R&D unique kit that I bought and built a loooong time ago. 

The bench is real wood.  I guess I bought a bunch of scale wood.  Been so long I don't remember.  But it is knocked up like a guy would make from scraps.  And the one I the shop i modeled it after.  No real measurements.  

The stains are just thinned paints of some sort.  Probably testers enamels from when I built it.  Thats all I had then.  

Thanks for the compliments.  I really should add more soon.  Maybe that will next thing I work on.
