I'm literally just starting my first one, still in the 'parts gathering' stage at this point...

my first attempt at a 1/25 scale garage.

still a work in progress.

occasionally I will stumble upon an item that is a good fit.

so the new item is added, sometimes an older item is taken away, somtimes not.

I started with an old wine crate (Penfold's grange) because it is very sturdy. gathered a few odds & ends from the parts box, AMT made the coca cola machine. and got a GMP Lift.

still have a box of GMP accessories unopened for this garage.

And the exterior of the wine crate still needs to be detailed.

After reading the first post, I was going to post a few pix of Darryl's shop that I absconded but he beat me to it. So much to look at and well worn. It is absolutely my favorite shop build and it only has two walls.

Very Nice fellas lots of nice weathering goning on and thats what I think the key to a successful dio is. I have the parts I need comming (was able to make a really good deal with a buddy here on the forum for the parts) now I just need to make them look realistic. I also noticed that placement is important to realisum . looks like i'll be doin alot of reserch for my shop build.

If i may throw my two cents in google Wilco. a very VERY good master of the diorama from Europe.

he has a few really awesome Dio's

Although the work here is really top rate .

Mr. Hamilton - your work has so much detail that small pictures are so hard to study. Do you have larger pictures some place where one could study for hours?

Romell,

Thanks for your kind comments about my Diorama. Here it is with a '34 Ford that I just finished. First completed model

in 40 years.

Thanks for posting that Chuck. I only took the time to look at the pictures and I was there over an hour. Amazing!!

Thanks for the link Ken. I just knew you'd have a photo album of this wonderful build.
