Hello modeler's!

From my previous post on my old diorama, this is the new one im building. All wip pics will be in this thread and updated when I get more done etc. The shop looks clean right now but will get messy during time thats for sure, I mean...its a body shop! lol

Still have to put in the interior walls etc and lots more work and stuff to do. The drop ceiling will have molding around the top also. This one is gonna be fun to do! Im goin to add a front section on also for parking with a small fenced in area...

Thanks for looking..

I am with everyone else here, it looks great and I had to really look to see it was scale versus real. It is almost a shame to clutter/dirty it up, as I think it could be a very nice backdrop for vehicle photography.

Hello everyone,

its been awhile since Ive got to post on this dio since moving and setting everything back up again.

Well the Mustang is a replica of my 1:1 2000 Mustang GT im building (also topic on the forum). Will be in the shop getting painted next with the base coat then the flames will be air brushed on etc etc. all pics will be takin in the garage in progress I guess lol.

This is amazing any chance you could post up how you did the ceiling and everything. It's so realistic if it weren't for the little dudes in some of the pics nobody would know it wasn't real.

Hey Rob,

thanks!!

Here is the link to my site with the How to make the drop ceiling, (well my way anyway)

Thanks. I saw your website and the dio page I like all the background you are doing on it. Really makes it come alive. I hope you don't mind me copying you when I go to do the ceiling on my dio.
