Rich thank you for your thoughts on my modeling; much appreciated. Ok now I know what Dave was referring to as "film". I used vellum when I did drafting in school, a long, long time ago. Yes I probably would sand the shiny side. After making items from leather over the years it is naturally dull in finish and has to be buffed in order to have a shine.

Larry,

The whole envelope is Tyvek; the ones for priority mail. I cut strips, painted them a brown color, and rubbed some dark gray powder on the strips. I cant remember what I used for glue. Possibly gel superglue.

Michael thanks for the answer to my question; when I go into town again I'll stop by the USPS and buy one of those envelopes. The material sounds promising.

Here's a bit of an update. This is where I'm at so far on detailing the back wall:



Most of the items are from Wiseman. Everything was painted and weathered. The chain is jewelry chain and the rope is some stranded heavy thread. The signs and posters are from this forum and resized to scale. The shop manuals were made from several pieces of paper glued together and colored with chalk which sit on top of the cabinet. All the items have been glued in place. The barrels under the bench are Ho scale.The benches and cabinet were scratch built stained and weathered.



Again most of the items are from Wiseman except for the gear and the item by the vise. Everything was painted and weathered. I do need to put something behind the 2 items on the floor on the left under the bench. These things have also been glued in place.



Here's an overall view of the back wall. Still a few more items to add here and there. The area to the left of the bench, by the window, will have a scratch built foundry crane built into the corner for the machine that will be on the left side wall.

Next will be to build the welding kit as well as a few more scratch built items.

That's where I'm at for the moment. Any comments/suggestions greatly appreciated.

Nice job Larry. The details are making it look like a real shop now!

Larry, Looks brilliant. I'm also doing interiors at the moment too, so getting some really good ideas from you pics.
They tools etc are really nice details. I must check out Wiseman models.
One common thing to add is a wall calendar, and maybe a clock.

Is the cabinet scratchbuilt. Looks nice.

Nice looking details. Like the studding of the walls, looks great.

But, the shop looks to way to clean.

Larry,

Fine work on the tools and stuff.

The salesman handling out calendars seems to be making the rounds.

Scott thank you. Still need to add a few more details to the back wall but it's coming along.

Jerry thanks, much appreciated. I didn't realize how time consuming adding details would be; but the time spent should be well worth it.

Rob thank you. Glad I'm able to give you some ideas for your project. A calendar and a clock is a great idea, thanks. The cabinet is made from scale lumber and some card which was stained and weathered. The door was made from card and scale 1x4's glued onto it. Also used a black marker to color the space in between the 2 doors to look dark inside the cabinet.

Bernd thank you and thanks for stopping by. As soon as I'm satisfied with the details on the back wall then I'll start to "dirty up" the place.

Michael thanks; much appreciated. Something was mailed to me some time ago in a white plastic envelope which Looks like Tyvec; forgot I had it and found it yesterday so I guess I already have enough belt material. It does have some very tiny air bubbles on one side but I think that they can be scraped off.
