Building dioramas is about 50% of the fun achieved from this hobby. Here you can build some cool little items that will add a great amount of detail to your shop diorama
This styrene modelers plastic made by Evergreen is some amazing material to use. Absolutely great to work with and available in almost any hobby shop. You can also order direct from Evergreen by clicking the pic and go to their site

3 easy build items
These are a few easy build items you can make to add a great amount of detail to your shop diorama. This can be done in any scale by using a car or truck to compare to the scale you want to build
Shop Shelves

An X-acto or utility knife will be helpful in cutting these small pieces as pictured. 4 shelves, and 4 corner supports

Shop Shelves
Find 3 spacers of equal size and hold the 4 shelves and 3 spacers together with a rubberband before applying the corner supports. Apply Testors model cement to the inside of the angle corner supports and glue in place. Make sure the glue bonds to all the corners of the shelves
Shop Shelves
After the shelves have dried for several hours, remove the spacers and rubber bands. Sand the top and bottom of the corner supports even leaving an overhang at the bottom. Paint to desired color
