Old Gas Station Diorama – #1 Garage doors [video]

Hello guys, a few weeks ago we released our new ebook on hot to build an old gas station diorama from scratch.
Now I’m working on the bonus material with more info and tips on how to build many details of the diorama.

On this video you’ll see how to build the garage door panels from scratch. It’s easier than it seems. As in most cases, you have to be patient as you’ll have to build 10 panels.

Pay attention to the blueprints provided with the ebook/book as the top and bottom panels are a little different.

I was wondering what you use for the frame material of the garage door and where do you find it . By the way ,what great work you guys do. Thanks Bill

Hey Bill,

the garage door is done with styrene. This is a type of plastic used in scale modeling, for instance by architects but also by hobby modelers. It is great for scratch building, as it is stable but easy to work with. You can get it in hobby stores under the brand “Evergreen”.
