    Greatscott's Scale Garage

    I have been toying with the idea of having a scale garage. A lot of the parts and pieces for it I can print up. My biggest problem was finding room in my little shop for something as big as a scale garage...

    Then it hit me...

    I have a paint booth that more or less acts as storage for random parts and pieces until I need to use it. It should be plenty big enough for a scale shop. My idea is to have the whole mess modular so that it can be removed when I have something that needs to be painted, either as one piece, or broken part.

    Here is the paint booth...

    What are you thoughts? How would you go about it?

    If you take the 1:1 car out of garage you got plenty of room

    Guess I haven't had enough coffee yet. You mean model garage inside the paint booth? Aka doll house or storage for the RC cars.

    If RC storage. Put pegs or screws or whatever as pegs into the 2x4 and use those to hold a shelf. Similar to how most cabneits shelfs are held up.

    You'll have to talk to my wife about that one...

    Neither, really, more of a diorama for taking beauty shots of my RCs, mainly my scalers and scalers...

    Nope, already have storage...

    Here is basically what I am talking about, but likely is a bit more elaborate than what I am thinking about.

    Hi, Greatscott. It's nice to see that blue car in your storage.
