GARAGE LIFE - OLDTIMER VOLKSWAGEN "SERVICE AND REPAIR" WORKSHOP
Proud to present my last MOC: an OLDTIMER VOLKSWAGEN "SERVICE AND REPAIR" GARAGE for the VW BULLI/BUS/SAMBA/KOMBI.
About this creation


Besides my passion for LEGO bricks I've always been involved in vintage car and motorcycle issues and I have always been fascinated by “garage life”.
For this reason, after having built the last few years almost exclusively 1/13 scale trucks, last winter I devoted myself to a new project: a workshop for vintage VW Transporter (especially T1 and T2).



The idea comes out from LEGO set #10220 which I bought in 2011 and has remained MISB (Mint In Sealed Box) until a few months ago. Then I built it transformig it in a canvas pickup (I presented it 3 weeks ago on flickr and MOCpages).
In order to build the internal of the workshop I watched my real garage where I used to spend a lot of time restoring and repairing old motorcycles and bicycles.





There are many tools and details in the workshop. Let’s take a look.
A workbench, with wrenches and vise, is positioned at the center of the workshop. There are also a mobile roller cabinet with four drawers and the air compressor. Beside the workbench is positioned a column drill press (is one of the pieces that I prefer in this moc).
Close to the right door there is the oxy-acetylene welder. There is also the folding engine crane.
There are others little details in this garage which I like very much. Thanks to Stag (and his superb moc “Hangar”) and Konajra (and his great moc “Oldtimer restoration”) for the inspiration of some details.

Last winter I spent many nights to build this workshop and I'm very satisfied with this MOC.



My Canvas T1 comes out from the garage after a check... It's all right now!







The doors are closed but the guys are working hard. Don't worry, come in!



Above, the garage in plain sight. Don't miss the details.



Soon probably others Transporter will be recovered in this garage… wait and see!
That’s all folks!

Quoting Iain Marsh Simply stunning. However, there is one vital piece of VW workshop equipent missing: the Hazet Assistent toolbox in characteristic pale blue. You really need to include one.
Hi Iain, I've never heard the "Hazet" before; it's a fantastic toolbox, thanks a lot for your suggestion!!! I'm going to build it as soon as I can!

Amazing MOC!!! Not a huge VBub fan, but still enjoy them enough to really appreciate the work you have accomplished on both the garage and the Canvasback!

What a great build. This has that very pronounced throwback look to a time when auto garages had less grease on the floors than the mechanics had in their hair;) There are so many great details here that it's impossible to name them all, but here goes: I love, first of all, the checkered paint job all the way around the wall, brought together by the flags hanging from the girders. I also like the vintage VW truck pulling in. What really brings this whole thing together is the small items that make this a garage. What I see here is a sink for washing greasy hands, a fire extinguisher, a jack, some overhead lights, an air compressor, (brilliantly represented), a work table, a tool box, a tool chest, (also brilliantly represented), a drill, a push broom, a couple cones, a boom box, and, (my personal favorite), skids with various important-looking details on them. I could go on about this MOC, but I will cut it off here. Really a superb piece of work.

Wow! Amazingly detailed. I love all of the components of the workshop -- the engine hoist, the rolling cabinet, the compressor, the floor jack, the workbench itself, and even the sink and the boom box. Each item seems to be perfectly scaled and fits in perfectly to the overall scene.

Wow, wow, wow! That's real vintage-life capture! From the green colour of the column-drill-press, futher the radio, the come-in-open-sign, until the the sheer organized-working layout, - everything is so much likely authentic! I Most like the crane, and the neon-lights, - they are so typically garage-life ( and of course the radio-tape-recorder).
