    Very nice pictures. There are some talented people on this board. Great!

    Any word about the garage itself? Did you make that, buy that? Source?

    I know the tools, got most of those. Actually you could even throw in a lift 1/18 scale. Did I mention that I love dioramas?

    Looks fantastic! I have most of the tools also...

    I have plans on getting a cheap 250 GTO and "rusting" it! Put it in a field with a bunch of old Chevy parts with grass growing around it. I just need the space to work...

    All great suggestions. But how do you make an accident car?

    With plastic models I think you can warm the plastic with a blow dryer enough to bend it, but with a diecast that strikes me as difficult. Any suggestions?

    BTW: The ER like look of this garage looks realistic to me. That's kinda what I've seen at most F dealers.

    From the Enzo GT thread:

    Thanks to Ferrari! and others I found a couple web pages with figures:

    http://www.hr-specials.de/shop/

    select Figuren 1-18

    Another one is www.modellino.de, also under Figuren. But be warned, there are some rather bizarre female figurines. The guy running this website has a rather distorted imagination. Nevertheless some of the mechanics are useful.

    In general I was surprised to see the amount of 1/18 accessories these German sites offer. If they'd ever discover the almost empty US market, they could really make some $$$.
