This is the garage all us Volvophiles wish we had. Master model builder Dirk Patschowski constructed this incredible scene for Revell to display at the Techno Classica show in Essen. I built models as a kid, and quickly progressed to adding more authentic detailing than the instructions suggested, but never anything quite so perfectly realized as this diorama.

Built from two Revell 1800 kits and one of their 122S kits, the garage scene is exquisite. The "aged" look of the Amazon is how you'll find them out in the wild, and all of the little details like the B18 engine sitting on a pallet beside a rollaway toolbox, the typical state of shop organization, and overall decor really make it seem like you could step right into the scene, if you were teeny. The one downside is that while I built my models for enjoyment, rolling around on the table and such, this work is so incredible, I'd smack anyone who dared mess with it.
