      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 scale garge 1/10 1/8 , 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




      all the legs spread out and extend and the feet can be adjusted in height . she works great. time for detailing it and a ramp

    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...
    I have done so much, With so little, for so long, I can do anything with nothing...

  10. 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 .

    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 [B]LOTS[/B] of useful stuff for modelling.

  13. just in case there is a spill, i drilled 2 holes and put a drain grate . also the floor came in and i ran out to finish it





    QUOTE QUOTE #14

  14. i started on an engine stand, everything will work on it. 1st i started on the base , made for styrene scale garge 1/10 1/8 square stock. then i cut some solid alum rod and inserted in the framing



    next i drill holes for 4 caster wheels . i made these from brackets i had laying around. and for the wheels i will use bearings off an r/c truck
