My ebay 3D printed 4 post lifts came today
4. June 2019, 07:19
Chris Greathouse
Those look nice! Are you happy with them?
4. June 2019, 07:26
Bill Newcomer
Chris. Yes I am they were less than $13 each with free shipping. I now have something to start a diorama. I plan on making a rich guy's muscle car collector garage instead of the usual service station.

The Leno Car Collection ! LOL !!! In 1/24 scale 1 HAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!
5. June 2019, 02:10
Bill Newcomer
THAT'S what I am talking about!!
5. June 2019, 02:18
Chris Greathouse
+1 Leno Collection!! Need some old steamers too :P
5. June 2019, 02:57
Bill Newcomer
Sorry, I already have 10 years worth of builds in the queue.
5. June 2019, 03:44
Chris Greathouse
Are you going to paint them up? Or are post lifts supposed to be blue?
5. June 2019, 04:00
Bob Hall
Like Me, More kits than days left on earth to build them all ! LOL ! So why was precious days on import garbage, is my philosophy ! HAAAAA
5. June 2019, 04:01
Chris Greathouse
You know how to get rid of your import garbage, right? :P :P :P

Chris they used blue material when they were printed. I will very likely paint them when I get to my diorama. I haven't decided on colors yet.
5. June 2019, 14:12
Chris Greathouse
Those look great! How fun :D
13. June 2019, 05:13
Bill Newcomer
With now 3 lifts and all the other stuff I'm going to need a bigger garage.
13. June 2019, 05:19
Chris Greathouse
I don't know if you've chosen colors but Black with Yellow secondary colors would look pretty cool. I was look at jacks/lifts and I liked this combo. Yes I know they're nothing alike... I'm just talking the colors. [img1]
 
13. June 2019, 05:20
Bill Newcomer
I do like the yellow arms. I may go with dark blue on the posts.
13. June 2019, 05:22
Chris Greathouse
Yeeeeeeah!!!!! DO IT!
13. June 2019, 05:29

I got a guy that makes all kind of signs and posters and G scale garage accessories.

Curious... I've only worked with 1:24/25 models. What hobby uses G scale?
13. June 2019, 05:36
Bill Newcomer
The last one was the funniest!
13. June 2019, 05:37
Bob Hall
That is 1/24 1/25
13. June 2019, 05:37
Chris Greathouse
Oh. Interesting. And agreed funny!
13. June 2019, 05:39
Bob Hall
He makes al kinds of signs and resin garage stuff
13. June 2019, 05:40
Bill Newcomer
My garage and tools kit came today
16. June 2019, 01:10
16. June 2019, 01:37
Ian Oostelbos
I think G scale is a train scale used for garden layouts.
Yep just checked an old book. 1/22.5 usually. Can vary.
16. June 2019, 09:56
Bill Newcomer
My G scale goodies came today. :)
18. June 2019, 00:12
Chris Greathouse
You're going to have a pimped out garage aren't you!? And yeah, Ian Google says it's 1:22.5
18. June 2019, 00:22
Bill Newcomer
Chris and Ian, Good to know. I will be watchful when selecting items so they don't seem odd.
18. June 2019, 03:35
Ian Oostelbos
Close enough. I put HO(1/87) with 1/72 & OO(1/76). Google makes my 30year library of useful books redundant grrr. Last resort as a matter of pride. Lol even my kids laugh at the Britannica.
18. June 2019, 08:06
Christian W
That is quite interessting. Will peek here from time to time ;)
18. June 2019, 12:00
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Bob, But I am (well used to be) an RC guy.
28. June 2019, 06:22
Bob Hall
Figured ya needed something stacked up by that ice machine ! LOL ! Me being from Texas, it all Dr Pepper my friend ! Ha !!!!
28. June 2019, 06:53
Bill Newcomer
Hey! I'm a Pepper too!
28. June 2019, 07:15
Christian W
Me too!
28. June 2019, 09:17
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Bob that is definitely high on my acquisition list.
30. June 2019, 00:55
Chris Greathouse
That's a cool tool for a scale auto shop :) It's amazing how much stuff is made for scale.
30. June 2019, 01:54
Bill Newcomer
I know and a lot of it is already prepainted
30. June 2019, 02:01
Bob Hall
Anything I should be keeping an eye out for, your looking for, for you garage ?
30. June 2019, 02:22
Bill Newcomer
Bob and Chris, thanks for the offers. What I need is the actual garage. I think I am going to get some 1/4" foamboard from Hobby Lobby. I think I will go for 4 bays as I have 3 lifts. But I am getting ahead of myself. I have 4 Chevelles, a Lowboy and an unstarted Freightliner to finish first.
30. June 2019, 07:26
Bob Hall
You going for the home gearhead garage or a full service hot rod garage dio ?
30. June 2019, 08:01
Bill Newcomer
A well equipped home hobby garage. It has to fit in my display case and be open enough to be photo studio. One thing I would need is a "Garage refrigerator" to put speed parts stickers (decals).
30. June 2019, 14:07
Bill Newcomer
I finally found the refrigerator for my future diorama. Bonus...the door even opens. :)
27. October 2019, 06:38
Bob Hall
Better have the doughnuts if you expect to have one of my police cars tuned up in your garage ! LOL !
27. October 2019, 07:01
Bill Newcomer
Well it is official. I have started working on my diorama. I did as much painting as I could today. I ran out of clips on sticks. Since most of it is enamel I shouldn't touch anything until tomorrow. I also likely have more inventory that I can fit into a 4 bay shop. I have started a bin of bits to trade off.
10. April, 22:32
Christian W
This car lift is pretty cool.
11. April, 15:55
Bill Newcomer
Had the day off due to a sore back from overworking it on Saturday. Broke down and masked the 3D printed 4 post lifts for painting. I want all 3 lifts to be the same color so I am priming all the pieces white. They will eventually all be dark blue with some portions safety yellow. I also painted a few items that needed to be white. Unfortunately my pre-painted refrigerator did not go well so it is in the purple lake. I hope it survives.
13. April, 23:20
Bill Newcomer
Now that my Freightliner lowboy is done, time to put it to work delivering items for my next project.
23. April, 01:11
Bob Hall
That load doesn't look secure, I'm gonna need to see your CDL and Log Book !
23. April, 01:13
Bob Hall
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !
23. April, 01:13
Bill Newcomer
But officer, I just unstrapped it.
23. April, 01:31
Bob Hall
No Doughnut, No Pass ! LOL !!!!
23. April, 02:51
Bozzer
I'm hanging around for this. I'm a big, scratchbuilding, Dio fan.
23. April, 06:15
Bill Newcomer
Glad to have you Bozzer. This will be a learning experience for me.
23. April, 06:52
23. April, 07:30
Bill Newcomer
I have been plugging away at painting and assembling my diorama items. I needed decals for them so, after many hours of searching for and manipulating files, I got them printed on decal paper.
2. May, 06:11
Bill Newcomer
Could not clear coat my decals because it is too humid. I did succeed in laying huge pieces of BMF without any wrinkles on the work benches though.
3. May, 07:02
Bill Newcomer
I have been away from my bench for over a week, Had to build my wife an elevated garden bed and build myself a subwoofer box for my work van. I managed to finish up my two long work benches today.
13. May, 05:41
Bozzer
They look great Bill!
13. May, 05:57
Bob Hall
Looking pretty sweet there Mr Bill !
13. May, 06:11
Bill Newcomer
Thanks guys. I got to apply a few kit decals to some parts. I missed the opportunity to spray clear on the decals I printed. (The humidity is too high again.)
13. May, 06:17
Treehugger
Any tips for working with this self adhesive metal foil? (I have this foil too and want to use it soon).
13. May, 06:17
Bill Newcomer
Yep, 1) Only use "Bare Metal Foil brand some other brands have way too thick adhesive. 2) Use a BRAND NEW blade to cut it. 3) Cut a bigger piece than you need. 4) Use a cotton swap to gently press it down from the center and work your way outward. 5) Use a round toothpick at an acute angle to work it into grooves. 6) Burnish/polish it with a cotton swab. 7) Brush Future clear over it (and your decals) to keep the edges down permanently.
13. May, 07:36
Christian W
That Idea with BMF is Pretty cool!
13. May, 09:37
Chris Greathouse
Great work benches!
13. May, 16:33
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Chris. They turned out nicer than I had hoped.
14. May, 04:20
Bob Hall
Mighty fine, mighty fine indeed !
14. May, 05:01
Bill Newcomer
I have been working on all the items for my diorama I finally have some items for viewing. My "containers" have a mix of home made and kit decals.
31. May, 05:05
Bill Newcomer
Finished applying some minimal decals to my "engine movers"
1. June, 03:44
Tom ...
haha Bill, love image #11. Also the work benches are AWESOME!
1. June, 04:01
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Tom. That load is about half of the trinkets for this build. I am so glad to have the benches. I didn't see any point in having them in a closed semi trailer.
1. June, 05:22
1. June, 09:46
Bob Hall
FYI - I looked in your stash, I have the same 1963 Ford Galaxie kit. It comes with an option to have a spindle and rotor to simulate a removed wheel, would look good getting worked on in your garage.
4. June, 05:18
Bill Newcomer
Oh really? I do plan on building some more Fords. My cabinet is a bit GM and Mopar heavy.
4. June, 07:04
Bob Hall
Yeah, it's on one of the chrome trees, I checked my kit earlier to make sure.
4. June, 07:11
Bill Newcomer
Added some tools to the tool boxes and decals on the flammables locker.
6. June, 05:11
Christian W
So cool. So much cool stuff.
6. June, 05:57
Chaz Gordon
I MUST HAVE ALL OF THESE !!!!!!!

That's an awesome collection of workshop accessories. Just need to make some realistic oily puddles for the floor and you're good to go.
6. June, 06:09
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, This is going to be a clean shop.
6. June, 07:07
Chris Greathouse
Cool collection Bill!
6. June, 08:48
Chaz Gordon
Oh, so it's going to be a science fiction scene then
6. June, 11:24
Bill Newcomer
Chris, Thanks. Chaz, no science, just fiction. Though Jay Leno's shop seems pretty clean.
6. June, 21:55
Chris Greathouse
Jay Leno's head bobbles so much, he might run into something if he didn't keep a clean garage :P

All these trinkets and garage bits are awesome, it's going to be a cool Diorama!
7. June, 04:22
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Chris, I have done a rough mock up with most of the major pieces. It will be full and colorful.
7. June, 05:04
Bill Newcomer
I wanted to have some license plates to decorate the walls. I have been saving up some generic license plate decals (I usually make custom license plates for my builds). The other day I was in my garage and found some shiny, aluminum duct. I thought it would be great to combine them and make real aluminum plates in scale. I even rounded all the corners. If only I had a laser to make the holes...
8. June, 05:53
Bob Hall
PEW PEW PEW !!!!!!!!!!!
8. June, 06:09
Nigel Chapman
Have you got a floor plan you can share or is it built as you go along ? Working ramps would look cool !!
8. June, 22:15
Chaz Gordon
A 0.3mm drill would give scale holes, or the tip of a new sharpie lightly applied would simulate the standard black bolt heads on those licence plates, you'd need to take a tape measure to your own car to get the standard locations.
8. June, 22:34
Tom ...
Hmm, spent time in prison did we Bill? :)

Fantastic job. Can't believe you made so many!
8. June, 23:13
Bill Newcomer
Nigel, I do have a basic floor plan. I am just keeping everyone in suspense. Chaz, too much effort for something going to be in the background. Tom, Prison/jail never and not likely. And I wanted to make more, but ran out of decals. I kind of think I may not have enough. It is going to depend on how many traffic signs I place once my order for them arrives. I also have to figure out how to make a shop banner that looks like big plastic ones for sporting events.
9. June, 03:21
Nigel Chapman
Banner idea - painting/decals on vinyl ? Something like the wraps used for vehicles.
9. June, 08:31
Günther Debiscop
Cool to see that you included Belgian license plates... (PN-4273)
9. June, 11:00
Bill Newcomer
Niggel, hmmm I will have to look into that.
10. June, 03:52
Bill Newcomer
Gunther, I had no idea how they ended up in my stash.
10. June, 03:52
Bill Newcomer
Made up some Chilton manuals for the shop library.
10. June, 03:55
Chaz Gordon
Bill, At a guess, I'd say the belgian plates came from either an Italeri Truck kit or a Revell European vehicle like the VWs
10. June, 07:02
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, The only thing in my stash that could meet that criteria is an unbuilt Italeri Peterbilt 377 that I borrowed the decals set to create artwork for my KW T600.
11. June, 05:11
Bill Newcomer
Detailed the shop equipment and scratch built a trough base for the lathe.
11. June, 14:22
Dominik Weitzer
uh ja, thats interesting to follow. very good work so far!
11. June, 14:50
Nigel Chapman
Looking good Bill. Are you going to weather anything ?
11. June, 20:46
Bill Newcomer
Thank you, Dominik. Nigel, not anytime soon. I have no practice and I like shiny new. I fix old worn out stuff on my job every day.
12. June, 02:15
Zach Wilson
I love the details!!
12. June, 02:26
Chris Greathouse
Wow! More and more parts, every time I come by, and Like Zach said, I love the details!! and all in shiny new condition :) love it.
12. June, 04:26
Bill Newcomer
Thank you Zach and Chris, I am coming to the end of the trinkets. I am working on the floor and walls. I had to fabricate right angle joints to hold the walls to the floor. I even designed them to present a 1/25 scale cove base at the bottom of the wall. The 2nd coat of black was sprayed this evening. I hope to have some pics of the structure this weekend.
12. June, 06:59
Bill Newcomer
I bought a sheet of reflective traffic signs printed on a sheet of aluminum. I cut out the ones I plan on using. It had some generic street signs too but I think I will make my own of famous streets like Woodward Avenue and Mulholland Drive.
13. June, 20:02
Chaz Gordon
Don't forget Mockingbird Lane
13. June, 22:22
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, where is that?
13. June, 23:12
Bob Hall
The Munsters
14. June, 00:04
Dominik Weitzer
:D ...aha....printed signes on reflective sheet. top!

perhaps i didn't red it, but did you use two bases or "only" one? in my opinion, all the stuff on one Base is overload. perhaps. it could be.
15. June, 14:15
Bill Newcomer
Dominik, I am not understanding your question.
16. June, 02:56
Bill Newcomer
I am finally starting on the backdrop of my garage. I cut out the basic walls from 1/4" foamboard. I used a glue stick to apply the imitation white brick (paper) to the walls. The windows are 3D printed items from ebay that will get glazed. The floor will be multilayered: Clear plastic sheet from a $10 Walmart poster frame, checkerboard paper from Hobby Lobby, galvanized sheetmetal from Lowes and cardboard from the back of poster frame. After building most all of the trinkets in the previous pics I noticed that many of the items are very light and prone to fall over. I figured I could glue some mini magnets to the bottom of the items and use the metal floor for them to stick to. Now I can rearrange my items in the garage whenever I want because they aren't glued. As you can see by the 1/25 semi, It is decent sized. I am presently decoration the walls with signs and license plates.
16. June, 05:33
Dominik Weitzer
Bill, on the 2nd / 3rd Picture is only one set from the Garage& tool shop to see. Thats why i thought, that with all stuf you build the space could be too small.
With your last update, you answered my Question :D
16. June, 14:30
Chaz Gordon
Yup, that's plenty big for all the gear you have. Are you going to put a side door in there? It's going to look great.
16. June, 21:18
Bill Newcomer
Dominik, I see where you were coming from. You were correct. WAY too much stuff for that little space. It would look more like a storage unit lol.
17. June, 02:32
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, I am not likely to have a side door. The long red work benches pretty much cover up the full length of both side walls. Thank you for your idea though. If I ever build a front for it, It will have a man door in that.
17. June, 02:36
Nigel Chapman
Bill have you considered working lighting ?
17. June, 10:34
Chaz Gordon
Would be pretty cool to have a working inspection light with an LED in it, plugged into the wall
17. June, 11:06
Bozzer
Don't forget a phone, and a laptop! All shops have those! Or pre-date to a desktop? There's always a clock on the wall too! And a washroom? Just giving you some insight Bill.
17. June, 16:17
Chaz Gordon
There are a range of 1/24 Glamour poster Decals available too..... Just Sayin.
Also looking forward to seeing a 1/24 chip buttie half eaten
17. June, 17:24
Bill Newcomer
Nigel, lighting yes. I have 10 scale lighting fixtures and a roll of warm white SMD LED strips. Chaz, I like the idea of a drop light. I already have the materials on hand to build many drop lights. Bozzer, I have a phone and I have been eyeing a scale laptop on ebay. Just haven't pulled the trigger. I like the clock idea. Washroom not likely as I do not have the real estate to give up for one. Chaz, posters probably not but maybe a calendar. Food maybe but I will need some people first. Thanks everyone for the input. :)
18. June, 03:15
Chaz Gordon
Bill, we're building Vicariously through you
18. June, 08:20
Bill Newcomer
Added pic of lifts and benches in a quicky mock up. There is a realistic amount of space between the cars.
20. June, 05:21
Christian W
Man, this will be a pretty cool shop!
20. June, 12:44
20. June, 14:09
Bill Newcomer
Detailed up a few more items. Added an argon tank to the Miller TIG welder and attached hoses to it. Fabricated some colored hoses and attached them to the oxy-acetylene regulators. I didn't like how the flammables locker sat directly on the floor so I gave it a cove base. I also attached the spare argon tank with removable safety chain.
3. July, 18:23
Chris Greathouse
WOW!!!! that welder and torch set is amazing :D
4. July, 04:27
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Chris. The decals were fun. Getting the tubing to stay put was quite a challenge.
4. July, 07:12
Bill Newcomer
After a severe case of mission creep, I finally got the back wall done. I gave it the works. White brick walls, windows with glass and a scenic background. I started with just license plates, but then added road signs, street signs, auto manufacturer signs (all of which are on sheet aluminum) and finally a shop name. Comments are welcome.
18. July, 03:23
Bob Hall
You get that Hood ?
18. July, 03:51
Christian W
There are a lot of windows. Are you planning to build a part of the ceiling? Then you could hang the sign of the shop name above the interior ;)
18. July, 07:11
Nigel Chapman
I made myself a wall clock for my living room using a Chevy Hub cap. Could you replicate something in 1/25 for your wall ?
18. July, 07:44
Chaz Gordon
Don't forget random hubcaps
18. July, 11:02
Bill Newcomer
Bob, I just got it today along with the trucks.
18. July, 22:22
Bill Newcomer
Christian, I plan on doing a mostly transparent ceiling. I will have 8-10 working light fixtures when I get to that part. Unfortunately, I do not presently have the space for an additional shop sign. I built the whole thing to maximize the space of one shelf in my display case.
18. July, 22:32
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, Hub caps hmmm... I may look into that.
18. July, 22:47
Bill Newcomer
Nigel, I like the clock suggestion. I may look into adding one.
18. July, 22:49
Chaz Gordon
If you're doing a clock, an old Quartz analog wrist watch would provide a working mechanism that just needs a face. (and some real careful work to put the hands back on.
19. July, 10:32
Danny Meer
How the heck could I miss this awesome piece of work? :P Looks great
19. July, 10:37
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, That sound like more work than I have time for.
19. July, 23:25
Bill Newcomer
Danny, Thanks.
19. July, 23:26
Chaz Gordon
Bill, the cheap battery powered analogy wrist watches are really simply put together. You'd just need to pop the back off, remove the adjuster knob, or dremel out a slot in the case for it to slide out of, then carefully pull the hands off with tweezers. Make your faceplate with a hole in the middle, then push the hands back on. Alternatively, find one in a market with a face that would work as a wall clock, and grind off the strap brackets, bit of filler and paint - wall clock.
20. July, 00:48
Bill Newcomer
Finally got around to attaching mini magnets to the tip over prone items. With the hidden metal floor the work great! The two post lift is much more stable and the towers stand up straighter too.
27. July, 05:59
Munkyslut
This is so cool 8)
27. July, 10:56
27. July, 12:15
Bill Newcomer
Thanks guys, still been working on the side walls.
28. July, 03:44
29. July, 22:30
Bill Newcomer
Bob, No I do not. That one is nice. Unfortunately my limited display space means only inside shop items at this time. I did paint and mount the hood you sent me last night. I'll try to post pics later this evening.
29. July, 23:58
Bob Hall
Sweet ! I save that seller, he has mad crazy cool stuff at reasonable prices and free shipping on most stuff ! Looking forward to your "Grand Opening" !
30. July, 01:59
Bill Newcomer
Thanks Bob. I bought my 4 post lifts from him early on in the project. Just took a pic of the left side wall with the Mustang hood.
30. July, 05:26
Tom ...
Bill, she's looking amazing! Absolute top notch work!!
30. July, 07:33
Nigel Chapman
Bill, is the blue hood on the wall from a Camaro? as I have the same for my Subaru build
30. July, 23:18
Munkyslut
Yeah Nigel, looks like a 67-68 RS/SS hood to me mate
30. July, 23:28
Bozzer
Bill, I don't want to kick you in the spuds, but I've noticed a flaw in your amazing work. There's no power points! Normally, in a shop environment like that, they'd come down the walls in a galvanized tube, about an inch diameter. You'd have to check height yourself, because our Brit regulations are different from yours. And you might want to add an emergency stop button too? Other than that, amazing details buddy
31. July, 13:57
Chaz Gordon
Bozzer, there's three double US outlets on the back of the workbench.
31. July, 19:27
Bill Newcomer
Bozzer, I agree. But I have invested enough time into it already. Chaz has noted the outlets on the back wall of the bench. Anyway, I am itching to get back to building cars and trucks. PS my compressor and 3 airbrushes came today.
1. August, 03:31
Bill Newcomer
Got the right side wall decorated this evening. The yellow Chevelle hood is just a placeholder until I paint up a permanent replacement. Should be able to assemble and set up everything for pics tomorrow. I still have to do the LED lighting but I am no rush.
1. August, 03:39
Nigel Chapman
Bill I've just noticed the row of product boxes on the bench. they look brilliant.
1. August, 18:56
Tom ...
I'm blown away with how clean and crisp everything is!!
1. August, 21:41
Bill Newcomer
Tom and Nigel Thanks. I was shooting for shiny and new.
1. August, 23:03

Added some magnets to the flam locker and RC machine. Added sheet metal to tire rack so the gas cans and oil pails stay put. I still have a laptop to detail and a bench grinder to fabricate. Some day I'll work on the lighting.

My friend Tim (who has a LOT of dioramas) came today bearing gifts. He gave me a super nice SnapOn tool box and a tool cart to add to my diorama. I had him come over so we could both learn how to airbrush for the first time.

Looking real good. I did get to thinking though, someone with a workshop that well equipped is going to have a lot of Buddies hanging out, they're going to need somewhere to sit while they have a beer with you. Think a Bench Seat couch is in order. I'll bet you have a body shell or two in your spares box that you could make a front or rear end couch out of.

Chaz, I agree with you. My problem is I have more contents than space now. I have even gone from 4 bays to just 3. I have also given away some of my extra items. I would not mind growing it if I had more display space, but I do not (yet).

How about an upper story as a man cave ? You could have car derived furniture, TV etc....

Nigel, I thought of that but again no display space and also moving away from my original intent which was a nice backdrop for photographing recently completed builds.

Its really simple bill, you need to move house so you can appease the vicarious build desires of your mates.

Have you guys been talking to my wife? She wants a bigger house too!. I wouldn't mind so much except it would have a bigger house payment to go with it. (Less money for modeling) :(

I want to live in a warehouse just like Dan Tanna & fill it full of mechanical man shit & old toys :D

Munky, the warehouse apartment is a great idea in the USA, particularly in southern California. It is a frightening idea in the UK, You'd have to be a multi-millionaire just to be able to pay the heating bill

Do it on the cheap Munky and move into your garage.

Haha! Funnily enough mate I just crawled out of the garage after a day tearing down the motor out of my Challenger.......... if I had a bed in there I might have stayed put :D

amazing build you are doing! great idea to use the magnets.

Bill Newcomer
Thank you all. The magnets work great. I can pick up the whole thing and transport it outdoors and back in with only a few items moving about. It will greatly save setup time if I ever get to go to a model show again.
