Here's the start of a little diorama which will be a welding shop. I could use some details for this one yet, so any ideas are very welcome. I have the WS welding series already to go.







There's ALOT more that is going to be added yet like a hoist, metal storage shelves/racks a truck,........ Let me know what you think so far, Pat.

Pat,

It looks great. Is it scratch built?

Here's a shot of the interior of a welding shop I built (along with Bruce). I think the tanks are Funaro and Camerlengo, the crates are Tichy and the jack stands and welding equipment came from the WS set. The rest of the stuff came from my scrap box. I added a flickering light to the bottom, right in front of the guy that's kneeling. The effect is pretty realistic when the building shell is on.

I have a Keystone Locomotive Works boiler that will go outside it once I put it on my module (when ever that is).

So far so good. I like the stone wall around the perimeter. Is it three castings of stone or made of individule stone blocks? I guess that it is plaster.

Forgot to mention that for details I would add a bunch of pipes, angle iron, scrap metal etc. Maybe a couple of saw horses too.

Looks good, I like the clutter and detail but......
Its too clean! I work right next door to a welding shop and its filfthy!!!
Just weather it up! even the outside. Lots of rusty metal supplies too
Paint the white ends of your pipes - metal or black from torching.
The "bottles" need some chips and abuse (slight) another nice detail too is the bottles must be chained to the wall.
