Sam's Garage

G'day Champions.
Hey everyone.

Seeing all the great garage builds starting lately sparked my interest, so I thought I'd give it a go....and what such fun am I having!!!

Rather than just work towards the finished product, I'm doing a few different stages to cover the "lifecycle" of my garage...before it becomes a car garage.....and will have a little fun with it along the way.

So the space I'm working with is quite small, the diorama itself is only around 850mm x 450mm x 550mm. It's more of a backdrop with just the two walls rather than a full "drive in" garage.



Most of you probably already know Sam.



And here's some items to fill it....
















So we pick up the story to find our hero has just finished building his house. It's just hit lock up stage and the garage is being used as a bit of a work area/storage room/rubbish dump!!





























More developments to come.

What the hell was that?!
That's awesome! I love the mess. I could never have a garage that looks like that in real life though. I think my head would explode.

Maybe take up knitting.
I think I should just hang my head and stop trying to get my scale garage going. I'll go back to making metal stuff. This little garage is surely the best detailed one I've seen, for a mess. The level of perfect mess is way up a notch. That's fantastic, mate!

Thanks heaps Headquake and LRTd5 for your comments.


So what's a garage without a fridge?....................


..........well.......a garage without a fridge!!!











This is a kit and is for dollhouses. I added the LED myself. The wires run out the back and through a hole in the wall to a battery and a switch. I'm not that good to put a switch in the door when it opens!!!

So right now Sam is in the middle of getting more power and lights into the place. I'll keep you posted.

Sweet garage! I love all the little details.

What bike is our hero riding?

I had a moment of splurgedom last week & ordered the 10 scale AutoArt BMW F800 GS for my garage. Sort of expensive but the detail looked fantastic & hard to find things between 1:6 & 1:12 scale. Italeri has some sweet ducatis in 1:9.

Thanks guys.

DRW..........its just an el cheapo preassembled Yamaha R1 from thE bay. I think the brand is Welly. Lacking in some detail, but effective enough, not intended to be the main focus. I hear you about finding one in the right scale without spending big bucks! This one is 1/10. Thanks for your comment.

That fridge and it's light. Man that's cool. Soon as I saw the stairs, I knew as I scrolled down, it would keep getting better and better. Amazing work!

Wow... Simply amazing! The mess after building his house very much resembles my basement at the moment after renovations... great job!

Wow... very nice work. Love the details. I'd love to know where you got some of the scale items (I see some are scratch made... awesome!)...

Thx for the inspiration!
