GARAGE LIFE - OLDTIMER VOLKSWAGEN "SERVICE AND REPAIR" WORKSHOP

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.

Soon probably others Transporter will be recovered in this garage…

That’s all folks!
