I hope you enjoy these pictures of this 24th scale garage that I made. It is made from balsa and basswood- standard frame construction with a truss roof that is removeable. It is lit with LEDs that have a wire going out of the back to a battery pack. The shingles were made with sandpaper. It is great for displaying models... like my 2007 Corvette shown inside.









I made this for my Dad about a year or so before he passed away. He really loved showing off his Danbury Mint and Franklin Mint cars in it. I must say that we had fun fooling people with pictures like these... making them think it was a real garage :rolling:

Thanks for the nice comments. I forgot to mention that the tool boxes, the stool, creeper, ramps, and air compressor (misc garage items)... were all purchased at the local hobby shop in one of those 1:24 scale display sets.
