Todd, I am really impressed with this garage, I knew you had talent, but WOW!!! It is all in the details, and you nailed them buddy.

Now I am shooting from the hip on this one so bear with me. In regards to the TV crew platform.

Can you put a staircase with a platform about the same height as the roof edge, and another on on the peak with a ladder laid down on the roof to walk on between them, thus allowing you to still remove the roof ???

ABout the Porche, some day soon it will run, until then, I will settle for watching them on t.v.

Thanks Chris !!

Ive got time on the stairs and platform and the HOW to do it will come easier Once the Actual Roof is complete and in place.

I am thinking about having the Stairs Attached to the sidewall with a Top Landing Just below the Eave..........From there , Ladder/steps (very steep stairs like industrial catwalks have or used to have) To the Upper Platform.

Hey, Kinda like you just said  :thumb:

We'll see once I get to that point..........(which will not be today ;)  )

I thought I'd give Dave (Hotshots) Foundation trick a try since I needed a Slab floor antways.

I managed to get the pour done and carved out my rocks..I also used an Alc/Ink wash and then sealed with Plastermatte.

Tomorrow i'll begin to add additional tones......I'll be leaning more towards the greys with a hint of light brown perhaps which is why I used the Alc/Ink wash as a base.

I also added a few cracks to the slab floor to give it a bit of an Aged appearance.





I'll add an Apron to this once I place the building in its Environs!! In the meantime, Lots to do..Roof to complete, Trim boards and then...the Lean - to :thumb:

Todd-excellent!! The foundation looks great and I love the cracks inside on the floor! Are you sure you don't want to do 1:32 railroading?  You have the size down just right. I am waiting to see more...

Nice job TG!

Good thing the builder used reinforcing rod to keep that cracked slab from shifting!;)

I got my first coats of toning done..........I actually tested Before doing the foundation with one of my Rock molds and what I found was BLENDING the 2 Stone Painting tips worked the best FOR ME!!

DAVE (Hotshots) Technique & Madmike's Ink Technique

What I did was I used Daves initial technique of spreading a full color wash for the heaviest tones I was leaning towards and then Sealed it with Plaster matte sealer.

I then tried both the floquil wash technique and the Ink technique on my sample and found the Inks were a bit more subtle and also a bit easier for me to work with.......Now I am sure that much of this would be What you get used to using and I know Dave uses alot of Floquil where I use far more Acrylics.

Since i didnt really have any experience with either the floquil washes OR the Ink washes for this type of project the practice piece worked well and showed that controlling the Inks over a sealed prewashed surface was actually fairly easy......after adding my individual colors i used a 1/2" soft brush and a Thinned umber wash and went over the entire thing...........you be the judge :)
