Garage diorama for auto restoration & machine shop 'completed'

I am now calling this one 'completed', although I never can keep myself from adding things to my dioramas.   I wanted this to have a dark moody atmosphere, yet still portray an enjoyable place to work.   This necessitated the need for lighting, which I have found even adds more to the atmosphere.   I only wish that I could add the sounds and smells.

What follows are the 'tour' photos.

This was an enjoyable project, and I thank all of those who followed during the construction in the WIP section.   I now have another diorama where I can display models for photography, so this is not the last you will see of this diorama.   I want to give a big thanks to dannyi, whose work in progress diorama from 2010-2013 was a big inspiration to me.   I spent several years looking at that amazing work of art, and thinking that I should work up the courage to try my own theme based around his.   I encourage everybody to slip over to the WIP-dioramas section and look up the diorama by Dannyi.   A work of art that good should not be forgotten in the back pages of the section.   I post this to encourage all who view it to start building one of your own.   Don't wait 14 years as I have done.  Get started.   If I can do it, you can do it.

Wow, impressive work, looks so real! Come a long way from the Otto Ray Sing vignettes that I remember from many years ago! They were so very clever, postcards from the North, I guess! I’ll have to track down your references now, lots of inspiration here if you know where to look

Well planned and executed. The whole scene looks lived in. I also appreciate your choice of unusual angle for taking the photos. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us.
