Bored, to take photos on my unarranged 1/1 workbench, I decided to built a 1/10 model of a messily scaleshop.
Started with some furniture from plywood and pine...

Until now, its not a fixed diorama, so i can change the setup, depending the purpose. More will come.

Thank's Andr?.

A Workshop needs of cause some tools. I started with a Bucksaw and a twohands - crowbar made from brass.
Started with bending and cutting some brass rods...

To make it functional, I used a small "real" sawblade...

Needs some colour to finish it --- perhaps this week-end ...

Wow! Cool stuff. I like how the scale plywood looks, I've used hobby shop plywood for other things but never thought of using it for actual scale plywood.... duh.

Tools are fantastic too. Great idea on the saw blade. What's the story on the vice?

I noticed your little guy has all the neccessary tools for proper garage work. He needs a fridge though.

Wow -- It's nice to get a compliment from one of the" -- "scale-accessory-building-masters" here! :bowdown:

Thank's alot.

Oooh -- and the Idea with the fridge is great! -- Yes, I should make the little guy happy before summer is coming. :beerchug:

Concerning the vice -- I think you mean this:

IMG_0442Medium_zpsbda7db07.jpg


it is fully functional and made of steel !! -- but I didn't built this myself.
I will try to remember / find out from whrere I bought it -- perhaps ten years ago.
I love these small "pieces of art" and collect them, when ever I find them.

I will keep this in my mind and will give You an information

Thank you, Kevin

--- since your first steps at your first "scale garage" and the first pics of the precious items, you have done for yours,
I knew that I also need such a "doll house" for my cars and scale stuff...

And well -- it's also a lot of fun to build these things.


Next step:

Parcel brought a new item two weeks ago...

I think that I rediscovered the shop, where I found the vice. But seems, that it isn't in the current program.
Perhaps You like the "new" ....

or the other stuff, they sell .... "Tool Time" ...... :rock:

where might a guy find a winch like that red one?? mines getting a little worn out..

Mine comes direct from a guy in china -- "direct imported" from a chinese private seller on my own risk...
found the winch by "hassard", while "stumbling" through the pics on an Asian forum, since I don't understand or can read any Asian language. After my order -- I had to wait more or less patiently several month ....:rant:

Because I don't want offend one of the Canadian or American dealers / sellers where I am ever been a happy and satisfied customer, I don't want to suggest one special. But when you search the net for " topcad alloy winch", You will find easily severel sellers ....It seems, that Topcad don't sell direct to private buyers --- I tried it several times to come into contact with them...

I try to be fair with posting names or adresses whrere I buy/ or bought my stuff -- when there is, as I know, only one vendor or provider, I post a name or an adress , but if there are more, I left the choice to others. Hope this is ok.

Cheers
Wolf

"something" that might be interesting for those, who don't have that much place for their hobby -- like me:

As written before, "the shop" is not fixed, as I use it only as a kind of photo-booth and not as a storage place for a model.
For all the cars ,it would be much too small ....like at most of you.

The second floor / rack is connected with small neodym-magents , when it's not in use, it needs nearly no place....at the other side, I need only seconds to fix it.

...and all parts connected

the connecting points at the ladder as well as at all my other glued wooden furnitures are strengthend by small pieces of brass rod. So -- they can take some weight

Great stuff! Thanks for the links, leave it to the Germans to make cool little stuff. They had a great selection of tools, reasonably priced too. You have some great ideas.

You're one talented dude. You remind me of one of those guys who made the buildings for old godzilla movies.
