Started to build a garage for my models

I found some 3/8" sheetrock, peeled off the paper & scribed the blocks into it.

I finished the bathroom today.

The sheet rock thing is messy but I like the way it looks. I cut out & added some windows & a front door. I'm not sure about making a small office I put some stuff in just to see how it might look.

That is really neat. The brick look like real cinderblocks. Inspiring. Keep up the good work.

Just keep picking away at it...

I have never done a diorama yet. So how did you make the door and window?

Hi, I hope this helps. For the window I figured out whare I wanted it, cut out the space then cut a piece of clear plastic (I used a piece from a Barbie doll box from my daughter) the same size & put it in the hole. I then used thin basswood cut to fit each side to frame it out & did the same for the cross piece to make it look like 4 pieces of glass. You can glue them in or if you make them fit tight enough just leave them. The door is 2 pieces of the same Basswood glued together cut to fit the opening & I made the hinges & kobs from scap pieces of plastic. Again I hope it helps & good luck on your build!
