    Default CC77's Scale Garage

    Hi everyone. I've been lurking on here a long time and I have to say the amount of talent and craftsmanship I've seen on here is unbelievable, it is well appreciated. I have decided to try my own scale garage as I am not new to RC, but I am new to crawling/scale trucks.
    I started with half of an old ping pong table, new legs, paint, and used 3/16" foam to divide up the table between myself, my son and my daughter. My son is building a scale gas station and my daughter is building a scale horse ranch.

    I started with an overhead garage door

    Then made a door

    I used wheel hex pins with e-clips on each end of them for hinges on the garage door panels and I used a ball stud for a doorknob on the door.

    I got one small thing done today (worked 12 hours today Ha!). I made an electrical service panel out of 3/16" foam board, ran some conduit out of a coat hanger and mounted a light switch made out of the head of a zip tie.

    I was able to get a few more things done this weekend. Holiday stuff going on means way less time to spend on scale stuff. I made a fire extinguisher out of a drive shaft from a slash for the body, antenna tube for the hose, a ball cup for the end of the hose and the end of a molly for the handle. Also hung a flag.

    Next, I made an air compressor out of New Bright parts I had in the junk pile, old body posts, 3/16" foam board, window screen, an old license plate, a round servo horn, 16 guage wire and an air needle. I also made a single throw box.

    Today I added a workbench. Made entirely of balsa except for the drawer pulls which are made from skewers.

    Thank you! I need all the motivation I can get. I'm lovin' the junker build by the way, brilliant work.


    Made a bench grinder with a wire wheel and a polisher. Started with a dowel rod and an old clothes pin. Cut and trimmed everything down until I was happy with it. Painted it and used a dremel tool wire wheel and buffer for effect. Next made a four plug outlet out of the heads of small zip ties, glued them to a piece of balsa and painted. Added the standard wire coat hanger conduit and power cord for the grinder. Threw down some old tool drawer liner on the floor for a work mat.
