  • Now that you've seen the outside of the Garage, here is part of the inside. In hind sight I probably should have taken more construction
    photos as I went along, but I'll walk through the process anyway:

    To start off the floor was stained with a maple stain and yes it needs to be made "dirty" which will come later. Almost everything is from Wiseman
    with the exception of the tires and drill press which are Crow River. The drill however gave me fits when building as it seemed to be a lot more delicate
    than the one I used in the machine shop for some reason; but I did manage to get it together.

    This time I took a lesson from other modelers and detailed the walls before gluing them together which was sooo much easier and came out better.

    Decided to go with a grey interior color which was weathered with A&I and also a darker green for the windows, which were scratch built along with the door.
    Also Ray is a little more "modern" than his brother J.D. so an electric motor was used instead of a boiler and steam engine. The electric panel, motor, and pedestal
    grinder went together very nicely. The machinery was painted with grey primer and a green wash along with A&I.

    The back shelf unit was scratch built using scale 1x12's and card which was stained and weather. The individual items received a base coat of grey primer then various
    colored washes along with A&I to tone them down a bit. This looks much better than using a resin cast shelf with the items already included. All the other detail items
    received pretty much the same treatment.

    Being that WWII had just ended the availability of new tires was scarce, so Ray procured some good quality used tires which were quite a bit cheaper to buy
    except they were somewhat dirty and stained. The tires are sitting on a shelf with a rope that passes through them and attached to the wall just so no one gets
    hit in the head with a tire.

    Tried different arrangements of the items until I was satisfied with the look; well almost. Also I decided not to have garage quite as cluttered as the machine shop is.
    The center of the floor will be left pretty much open to get vehicles or tractors into the garage for repair. When I get the last wall finished, and detail parts
    added, then the walls will be glued in place.

    That's the progress on the inside with lots more to follow. Thanks for looking and any thoughts are much appreciated.

    • Garage looks real good and a nice tribute to Dad and your brother.
      Why am I seeing blue squares in your last post instead of pictures?

      • Thanks Rick. I only posted one picture in my last post and it's showing up on my page
        so I'm not sure. I just logged out and checked ,the picture is still showing up.
        I just deleted the picture and re-uploaded it, hope that helps. I was having problems
        with the site loosing access to the server while i was writing the post, so maybe that's why.

        • Larry, I don't see a picture in your last post where you're talking about detailing the interior.
          I see 4 blue boxes with question marks.

              • Looks terrific! I do like the shelves with individual castings.

                • Rick after I reloaded the picture, I was hoping that it would show up.
                  If I start having problems with server loss while writing a post then I
                  will write the post in my word app and copy and paste it in and add the pictures.

                  Mike thank you. Yes I do like the individual castings much better than a resin one.
                  A little more $ but it's worth the better appearance.

                  • The last wall has been completed but is just sitting there and not glued in yet as you can tell
                    by the odd way it's positioned:

                    The work bench was scratch built using scale 4x4's for the frame and front legs. The top was constructed from scale 1x4's and the whole bench was
                    stained but still needs to be weathered and will be glued to the wall supports. Most of the detailing bits are from Wiseman with the
                    exception of the chain and pulley which was from Crow River. The yellow part on the bench was from the parts box and the manual on the top right hand
                    corner was scratch built. The signs are from my computer file and the belt was something I had on hand.

                    ​​​​​​This is what the inside of the garage looks like with the walls all glued in place. There is a
                    cabinet, behind the drill press, which was scratch built and inset into the wall to save precious space.
                    It was made from scale 1x12's, 1x4's, and card which was stained and weathered with a few items on top. There was a slight gap, done on
                    purpose, which was colored with a fine black marker to simulate a gap between the doors. All the items in the picture have been glued in place.

                    Here is another view of the progress so far. The two wheeled hand cart was from Wiseman assembled, painted and weathered. The drum had a
                    bottom added and will sit on the cart being ready to be placed somewhere else in the garage; this has not been glued down so it can be
                    relocated when the mood strikes.
                    That's the progress on the Garage so far but there still are few more things I want to do to it before it gets placed on the layout and scenery added.
                    As usual any thoughts, comments, or suggestions are appreciated.

                          • Rick thank you for the kind words. I'd take a bow but I'm afraid I wouldn't be
                            able to straighten back up afterwards.Lol.
