Default 1:18 scale garage

I've been making a 1:18 scale "garage", still not finished, but I think it's going to turn out pretty neat. Kindcrappy pics, when I get it finished, I'll take some better shots. It should hold 7 to 8 cars.

Luke, you are hilarious! Not everyone has their own "mobile parking garage" LOL!

And Baldfart, I get most of my models on ebay. The aztec gold is made by ertl, but all my other models are UT/Autoart models. I think I'm up to 9 now.

Well, I went on ebay, and looked up corvette signs. The ones I wanted I pasted into an album, and then resized each one in Word, and printed them out on photo paper. I have several more I'm going to try and print this weekend to do the side walls.

If you ever run across a vette like ours that has the rear spoiler in a model please get it for me and I'll pay you to ship it to me. seen the yellow one you had but I"d love to have one with a rear spoiler and a hood scoop. Keep looking at all the cast models in the t/s but have not seen anything close yet.

Not everyone has white caps in their front and back yard either. Thats why everything is mobile ... LOL Only you could master something like that cool garage. Looks fantastic... You got my vote.

Thanks Luke, I'll look for one, but haven't seen that in a C5 yet. I'll check out specter werkes, they sometimes put body kits on them, as well are lowered. If I find one will get in touch with you.

Oh my gosh on the water!!! That was an unbelievable storm. Hope it didn't cause too much damage for you!!

We just move the grill to the back porch. Can drink just as much beer back there as we can on the front one...

Picking.... We're use to them.. No big deal now.
Thanks. Drive safe....
