Have an idea in my mind for a workshop diorama for a while and saw these in a toy catalogue recently

2.

By leaving out a few bits and a few modifications it should be possible to do what I want with either of them but the preference is to go with the first one. By using the wall templates from http://www.carrera4fun.de/

There is a young farmer in this house who has one. They are big. The one he has is in your picture (with the tractor inside) is 500 to 600mm square. At some stage I would like to build one in 1:18. Have gathered a few bits.

Dave it was in the Smyths Toys catalogue over here http://www.smythstoys.com/ie/en-ie/toys/construction-cars/c-399/farm-vehicles-accessories/p-3021/wooden-cattle-shed-with-cubicles/
They have a UK site but it doesn't come up on the search

Sorry to disappoint guys but "Animals, tractors and farm machinery not included." however my youngest niece has a few farm animals in a box somewhere so maybe one or two of those might make an appearance sometime Laughing


And keeping with the car theme I got her one of her Christmas presents today

I was wondering what to use the rooms at the back for, was thinking office and store, might put an engine/transmission area in the open bit on the left and a spray booth at the back right

Have been busy on the ol ebay over the weekend, bench, gas cylinders, snap on tools, loose hand tools and a few more bits ordered. Have a couple of spare cars at home to be stripped down to remove cages, seats, wheels etc. Just need to find a reasonably priced 2 or 4 post lift and I should be well on the way
