OK, up at the crack of dawn, peg board is done. I made a 3' level and a 2' steel rule to hang on it just to fill some spots.




Here it is in place.


Start of the electrical stuff.
Breaker box



Outlets, conduit, equipment cords/plugs





Well that's all for now. Time for more coffee !!

Nice attention to detail, as usual of course, but still nice work my brother! Love the peg board and tools.

The low light pics are way cool!

1806 holes? That's brutal... but it's like shingles, doing them each separate is what makes the detail that turns heads. Tools look great on there.

WOW!! Just plain WOW! Pegboard is awesome. What are us using for conduit? Jeweler's wire?

Thanks guys.
Conduit is plumbers solder, works out great for this. Just the right size, cheap and easy to form.

Yup, time for another update.
I had planned on making a functional 2 post lift. The more I thought about it I decided against it, after all it WILL be just for photos and rig storage.....so here it goes.

I made most of this out of wood, good enough for this part.
I didn't take any assembly pics, uneventful really. Here it is in place.




As you can see, I went for the style using a baseplate for more support.

Some of the detail shots.
Actuator and hyd lines




Pump and motor.


Warning labels.


Staged with Hotrod.




Here are some overall shots.




And finally a panoramic of the whole shop so far.


I still have to make the lift arms. I will have it so they can be set at different spots depending on how high I want the rig.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for looking.

Another awesome diorama! I could play with that all day haha.

I've asked the other few people on here building garage scenes whether they will build a rolling road, as that would be pretty sweet. Not sure you have any room left though!

That way all the road cars could turn up

So cool. I love all the detail. I'm making a list of ideas to steal.

P.S. I saw a movie where these marines tortured enemy guys by forcing them to make scale peg boards... scary.

D, that looks amazing! Garage is looking great so far brother! Ya now just a thought since your gargae is going to be stationary for when you are taking pics. You should print or paint a sky looking back drop for above it and then for the bottom build a hinged door to hide the stuff underneath but flip it up and prop it with a painted driveway or something on it. Not that any will change how awesome the garage looks but it would hide the stored items above and below for when you are doing pics!

I looked at that first picture in post 24 for a good five minutes thinking "that must be what he's copying" it's brilliant

Nope, not needed in this, and your correct, no room !!

One hell of a torture too I tell ya, my eyes were buggy for a while after it. Take all the ideas you want, no problem.

Very good thinking Ed, O may have to do that....one cheap idea for the "sky" would be a shower curtain, easy to move when needed too !! Hmmmm, more to do now....

Thank you, I try for as scale as I can get, sometimes it kills me but other times it turns out rather well.
