Garage Life: Diorama by Matt Rus

Posted by

Speaking of Garage Life, if you can’t afford those luxury garages featured in the magazine then check out these scaled version dioramas produced in Japan! KSP Factory produces these outstanding 1/43 miniature garages which are so detailed that the untrained eye could easily mistake the 1/43 model for the real thing!  Their ultra-detailed and precise accessories are super realistic and as I could understand from Google translate they are even made with real materials not just painted plastic. If you look at the Ferrari garage you’ll notice that they put working LEDs and LCD picture frame to make a more authentic look (confirmed by Ben, yes there is a functional LCD monitor and a number of light up LED lights). Unfortunately the images are not big, but instead I put more of them to get the picture of how good this looks.

EDIT BY BEN – Let me interrupt right here. I was so impressed with these when Matt showed them to me that I got in contact with KSP Japan and became a dealer of theirs to export these outside of Japan. I’ve really never seen anything quite like this. For a car lover like myself this is the ultimate display toy. Forget just having a cool model car collection, these are full out custom garages with working televisions inside them! Crazy. Anyway, if anyone wants any of these just give me an email and I’ll set you up. ben@bulletproofautomotive.com. Now back to Matt’s post pictures…

Mid East Trip – Now That I’m Back Pt. 3

Dream Garage in Dubai, Bulletproof Automotive Trip

Last month I put together two posts of interesting things found during my last trip to the mid east. Today I’ll finish up the trilogy with a feature on one of the best home garages I’ve ever seen.

At first look, this garage looks like a very nicely detailed 4 car garage. On its own, that would be something to admire…yet this garage fits 8 cars and does so in style!

If you click on the above image you’ll notice that the squeeky clean new Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560 sits beneath a Mercedes G-Class.

In all four of the bays, sitting behind the motorized heavy metal doors are lifts to allow the luxury and exotic cars fit one on top of the other.

I think another closer look is needed:

I dont want to give away too much about the car collection to the point that someone could identify who the owner is…but just have a look at a fraction of this collection. Here in the above picture sits a Gemballa Mirage GT (Modified Porsche Carrera GT) which is underneath a Mercedes Benz McLaren SLR 722 Edition. As you can imagine, the other four cars are equally as spectacular and well modified.

They have truly put together a dream garage for their home! Granted they have other garages, some much bigger, but what has impressed me is that this is a useable garage located at their home with a quality design. It is much easier to build a warehouse type garage than to build something on site at someone’s home, this is one of the best home garages I’ve seen.

This concludes my photos of my last trip to the mid east. I’d love to show more from the trip but I must respect my friends over there and not give away too much behind the scenes. They like to keep their anonimity. Thats all until the next trip perhaps…
