DIORAMA SCENE WITH A SMALL GARAGE WITH FULLY DETAILED INTERIOR WITH WORKING LIGHTS , 3 FIGURES AND 2 CARS -31 FORD MODEL A WOODY AND 1942 JEEP CJ2 , 

the garage structure built board by board like a real one , 2 working lateral doors , 343 roof shingles and a lot of accesories.  

the vehicles have been painted with lacquer and weathered with enamels paints-oil paints -chalk and real rust. fully detailed jeep engine with wired distributor, electric and fuel lines -

 I found a better technique to weathered if you use turpentine to the oil paints (dry faster than a thinner for oil paints) and the same for the chalk, I used turpentine for the dust chalk and not the traditional wet water (or water-dish detergent and window cleaner)

That is fantastic. The interior is great and the level of detail keeps one looking. I must ask though; what happened to the Anacin sign?

Impressive work there. Where did you get the garage figures?

If you can't find or afford to buy it, Build or make it yourself.

 

On my bench: 57 Ford skyliner, 56 chevy gasser, 57 ford gasser, 2- 72 Novas , 69 nova, 54 chevy fieldcar, 61 Galaixe ,  63 Buick electra convertible..along with  a handfull of stalled builds I need to finish. Basicaly too many.

for me the best way is : a red Led or Lamp covered with clear silicone and  N scale ballast with ash from a cigarette, the light  travel across the clear silicone making a realistic effect if you use a electronic stroboscopic light ..much better

That is so good!  I love the first picture with the fire and the interior light.  Great atmosphere you've created,however, in the 4th photo some one's left the tap running.  Don't they have water restrictions where you live?  Seriously that a great diorama.  Bodgie 43
