Next salvage job is this old tub that was built for another diorama. It had been in a shed that had the  doors padlocked and was barely visible thru a window. I brought it out for this garage, even tho I had it inside again, where it wasn't visible either. I may have this sitting out in the side yard, this time.


It needed a new tarp. This foto shows it covered with a single layer of Kleenex and slathered in a really wet coat of thinned down acrylic paint. Extremely fragile. When it dries, I'll fix it some, if I have to.


Back out on the picnic table again, I'm laying down a base coat of dirt. Left over brown acrylic house paint and sprinkled with very economic Florida  sifted dirt.

Like what you're doing with this Clay.

I've found that thinned Elmer's wood glue (PVA) with some acrylic paint added gives a nice firm tarpaulin when dried, need to use a decent kitchen towel though so it takes the application of the slightly thicker liquid.

I think that's what I used for the first tarp. Snake, because it was much thicker than Kleenex.
All the paper towels in the house are either embossed or had printed designs on them.
Didn't think about using diluted Elmers glue. The acrylic paint is not as fragile when it dries, but glue WOULD be much tougher. Cheers

Not sure how I have missed your last couple of updates, this is looking good Clay.

Looking EVEN better the second time around! Lucky you that it's warm there. Spring is way late up North!

When I first built the garage I had made a small planter in front of the scene stopper, "Beecher Meat Co", that held a small, potted, miniature bonsai plant. After razing the building to make a larger lot beside the garage, I had built a planter out of a 6 cyl. block. I kept it outside because it had a live plant (weed) in it. Don't know whatever happened to it.
So, While the fence posts were setting, I thought I'd try another for out front of the garage. It too, will be kept outside to get watered with my bonsai. It has live plants in it. (weeds)

That's a fantastic idea Clay, looks the part too ... Quite "in scale" in fact.

Available for use again. Some test shots. Will have to keep it out from under the awning. :o)


Using the pie-cut sectioned 2010 Challenger model for a reason. My remaining unbuilt kit is  a Challanger street machine. I might want to see what the classic Challenger will look like with a section job !

Amazing, but it's what we come to expect from this site's "resident artist!" Engine planter astonishes.

Man Clay, Your shop has been my favorite of all time. It looks so realistic in the photos when you post builds. I will be watching and learning as you rebuild it.
