My father-in-law had a Texaco garage, and my wife has hinted for quite a while that I build a version of it. Well, there is no way that he would ever have let his garage get as run down as the one I built. Sorry, Earl, but I couldn't help myself. I like to model decrepit things.

Hi Terry,

This is very well done, and I love the weathering job you did. What scale is it? (Judging from the details, it looks even bigger than O scale.)

Take care,
Rob.

This is O scale. It is a scratchbuilt structure loosely based on the Branline garage kit. I bought the kit but decided to make my own version. In addition, many of the details I "borrowed" from Chuck Doan.

I am even more impressed. My first guess was G scale. The fine details really make the scene.

Terry,
I need to refer to webster's dictionary for a while, to come up with original words to describe the pictures of the incredible modeling skills demonstrated in all those awesome pictures.

For now the truth repeated over and over will have to do since I don't know how to read an actual book these days. . Thanx Thom...

Terry,

I'm glad you posted this diorama, and I've been looking and drooling at the pictures for a while now, as this is modeling craftmanship in the finest form. Although your pictures give a good description of your extended long hours of work, it is by far better seen in person. And I'm glad that I took the drive on that day!

Impressive modeling, Terry. Looks like it's been a long time since the garage has seen a paintbrush. I like all the details, yes, but in particular the paint and weathering.

Mike

Terry,

I do agree with Michael, your weathering and painted details do stand out/ Looks like you did a splendid job on perfecting the rust method too.
I especially like the details you placed around the old jeep.

Thanks,Rob. I have resisted keeping track of how much those little things cost. I'm afraid my wife would see the total and not like these little buildings as much as she did before.

Wow, Thom. I am at a loss of what to say. Thank you.

Michael and Rich. I have been studying the work of Michael Rinaldi of late. One thing he cautions is to try to keep the weathering to scale. I think it is something that I had been trying to do, but his excellent teaching has enabled me to improve that technique quite a bit on this structure. I am really glad you guys noticed that. It was my primary focus on this build.

Wonderful work!

It's work like this that entices me to change scale but then I find it impossible to find a good selection of true-to-scale vehicles for my era.

I did browse many of the photos in your Flickr stream when I noticed that many of them were done with an iPad. Nice work! Just go to show what you can do with what you have.

Terry,
Fantastic Job! Decrepit is wonderful for our models and you captured the rundown, weathered look beautifully.
