    hey guys i had a diorama idea and need some help finding some parts for it. evidently my google/bing-fu isn't working well for the last week. what i want to do is i have a paper model of the bumble bee camaro from transformers and i wanted to do a garage scene for it. so far i have been able to find a air compressor for it and that's about it. any one know where i could find things like a work bench, jacks, assorted tools to fill it out? any help would be a blessing!! thanks.

    Not sure of the site, but I do remember some tools in dioramas from NASCAR and Indy style cars. Try looking in our download section under dioramas or search for paper cars or paper nascar.

    those are pretty much what i'm looking for. i'm also trying to find a floor jack, the typical metal shelving that has all the clutter on them, maybe a wall locker, and a workbench. i'm probably going to go to sea sears catalog and shrink down the hand tools to scale to lay around and put in open drawers.

    Nice set of doodads for a diorama, also a wall/floor set on the site as well to go along with it. Definitely on my to-buy list to compliment my old plastic kits. Thanks for the link~
