Good photos for the interior clutter file.  Funny how designers back then tried to class everything up with cabriole legs,  even the most mundane things like washing machines, stoves and kerosene heaters.   I noticed a similar trend today, every new appliance has swhooshy computer generated curves all over it. Pfui.   Tongue

Seeing that picture of the  Seigler-oil-heater, reminded me that we had a similar but not quite so fancy one, to heat our house in the 1950s, in side when you lifted the front off, was a very utilitarial rectangular oil tank with a wick & chimney on top

Hey guys,

Once again thanks for all the great pics. I will use all of them. So far the interior shot with the tool board came in very handy as you might be able to see. Here are some pics. of about 25% of what I have finished so far regarding the interior detail parts. Still have to finish a small lathe and drillpress that will be powered by an electrical motor and wait for more gaskets etc. from Dave to fill up those racks.
Not really sure I will use that large resin shelf in the background but it might be alright when filled up with tons of parts. Will wait to see what Dave can come up with.

All the other stuff workbench, crates, toolbox etc. are scratchbuilt from micro plywood. Couldn´t resist some crackle paint on the large crate.

Wow! Very nice. I am working on a similar project of modern auto shop. I designed a set of modern car junk for Dave and because I am so lazy to finish the last bits he hasn't offered it on his site yet. ( I am sure Dave will send you a test version to get more even more clutter in there.) Your clutter looks really good!

I also ordered a few resin castings from this German maker: http://www.tl-modellbau.de/en/TL-Plus-Workshop1-87/

Anders,
there are a couple of things that I am struggling with: First, I have hard time with my tool boards. While Dave makes probably the finest and smallest tools in the market, they are still fairly big. I am still trying to figure out a way to make these tools boards.

The other problem are motors and other engine parts. I am basically making up fantasy parts, since I have no idea what everything is in a garage or on a car. I try to use a lot of reference images, but I still have no real clue what I am building. I just love the mess.

Anders --

That's a wonderful collection of signs, tool boards, parts bins and "junque" that you've put together there.  Admire your (seemingly) rapid progress and eye for detail.  Very nice!

Cheers,
Dallas

Magnificent work, Anders. I'm eager to see how you put all these parts in your garage.

Can you guys believe Anders did all that in HO scale? Very impressive! He has sent me an article about the machine shop for the April Industrial Annual. Stand by to freak out. -- Russ

This is a testament to Ander's obvious skills AND Dave incredible HO parts.
That's a tough combination to beat.
