Thanks guys! I'm a bit OCD and just keep my area as clean as possible...I'll post up a few new pics as I got some nifty wooden paint racks that stack up nicely right next to my 'bench. The white caddy is actually an old toothbrush/soapdish that I score for a quarter at a garage sale. It's great for keeping my scissors, two X-Acto knives and a small set of tweezers in. The dish part just holds bits and pieces for current projects.

 

later,

You can also look at make-up stuff...there are some nifty little caddies that can hold specific stuff that take up very little room.

 

Okay, updated at of Sunday. The paint racks are actually some herbal extract displays that I got recently when the local natural food store went out of business.

Thought I had posted these before but don't see them so here goes:

 

Workbench is currently the kitchen table with the back deck as the spray booth (rattle cans only at this time). These were taken a year ago. Since then I have moved to the other side of the table by the wall with a few of my to do kits close by.

Here is my old bench which was taken back when my oldest moved back it.

Some but not all of the book collection.

A blurry shot of the overall stash.

There has been some changes as I have sold a few and bought a few and now there is another set of shelves in front and blocking easy access as my wife now works from home in front of the kits.

Nice looking hobby rooms guys! Here's my little piece of heaven.

Of course this photo was taken with the desk in business mode. When it's time to build, I have a small work station that I made that I build on.

My previous hobby room as well as the house was taken from us by hurricanes Rita and Ike as well as a couple of con artist that got our disaster relief money.

Looks sharp, Kenny! :smiley20: A buddy of mine is in the IT business and is setting me up with a laptop for my workbench once we get settled back statesided this July...I am soooo looking forward to this. Makes working on stuff quite a bit easier for sure.

Hey Lee. A laptop is a must have for me. I bring it to model contest along with a small vinyl cutter and I can cut custom paint masks on site. The stash is outside in a storage building.

I just finished using Kenny's paint masks on my P-40 posted over in the Aircraft forum. They worked well.

You just gotta read the captions "The Heath box has a couple of Star Trek Deep Space Nine Runabouts in it."

I just spent 4 hours cleaning the work bench last night. First time in probably two years. It was disgusting, even to me. I'll try to post a photo so you can see what it looks like clean.

I'm digging Phil's 1/72 scale heaven as well. I love seeing another Braille Scale armor modeler. Hey Phil, when are you gonna get to that Vulcan? Mine is already hanging on the ceiling.

Mark,

Not sure. Want to do one of the Black Buck aircraft from the Falklands but haven't decided which one. Also, may decide to save up for some of the parts from Two Mikes. Then there is the "where will I put it" question. That may have to wait till my oldest moves back out or one of his younger siblings beats him to it.

Nice digs, David! Cool touch with the small TV.

Here's the dungeon...

 

100_3061.jpg

 

The TV is over in the corner now, and I have a touch-screen PC in its place. This has all my PDF books and photos online, so I don't have to go upstairs to the computer to access data. Next step will be to network it to the upstairs machine...

I've easily tripled my Gunze stock and even bought a Gunze rack!! That sits where the stereo is in these pics.

MM and everything else.

The spray booth...kinda. There's a large exhaust fan overhead, piped outside. All I need to do is plug in the fan, open the window on the other side of the basement, and no fumes or paint clouds!

Photo booth. The lighting has changed, there's diffusers in place now, etc.

 

100_3047.jpg

The stash, or what's left of it...

 

100_3045.jpg

The library...the beer bottles are leftovers from the last Death Build....

 

100_3046.jpg

More books...I really need to organize these better....eventually.
