hey guys
here a scale gararge ive been working on
ive been wanting to build something like for awhile, so i figure i give it shot .
ive started by buying a peice 1/4 inch styrene, this way i can bolt stuff to the floor.
right now im waiting the floor covering and the wall covering to come in, in the mean while
i started to build a working truck lift. fr the main post ive used 1 inch square stock with 2 actuators in them .
ive purchased a snap on toll box , which is really kool and highly detailed, also fun a reall kool engine hoist.
ive fun some other stuff too. i believe everybody will like what ive in mine . the truck lift is going to really kool when done
so lets get started

Have you seen my coffee table display? Im planning to add 2 walls, finished inside and out.( when i get a breather from work).What did you use for the brick work? I thought about using wood planks but the brick is cool....Did you scratch the pump assy on the tank or was it something you purchased...Amazing dio dude..I assume the lift actually operates...Cool stuff man...

semijoe
04-25-13, 07:58 PM
the brick work is wall paper , the floor is contact paper, the pump i had a bunch of parts laying in a junk box. yeap the lift really works .

Dr Dave
04-26-13, 05:25 AM
This is coming along very nicely Joe. I really like how everything works.

Some of the guys here in my local model club use plasterboard for brick walls. They remove the paper from one side and carve the brick pattern into it and then paint it. Plasterboard off-cuts can be salvaged from building site waste bins. These bins can provide LOTS of useful stuff for modelling.
