Thought I would share some shots of my actual workplace (as in modeling room). I am very lucky in that we have a large house with six bedrooms, so the wife lets me have a room all to myself.



And this is what I like to call my "Table of Woe". Unfinished projects abound!!


Anybody else got shots of their workbench to share?

LOL your lucky!... I'm stuck in the basement :angry:

Well I have seen neater and tidier workbenches but I just cant seem to remember where and when. ;)

Nice to see where you do your stuff.

Don't be fooled Charlie, it is the basement as well. :)

And that is about as neat and tidy as my little bench will ever get. :(

Hi Stuke!

It seems we all like to hide in the basement - but at least you have windows!

Hi John! Good to have you aboard, there are some real nice build threads around here. You should check them out.

Ok I dug up some shots of my "CAVE" - Wish it had windows!

Nice looking set-up you got there John. I love the use of the covered cupboards, keeps it clean looking. I might have to ask for some for Christmas. :)

They are just a home depot special - nothing special!

Still can't get in the modeling mood lately (Ok, it's been for the past few months). Anyway, nothing like re-arranging your workspace (or in this case moving it to another room entirely) to try and get the ol' creative juices flowing.....


Less room, but that forces me to rid myself of the non-essential items.

The display case is full of unfinished projects so that I am forced to see them and perhaps finish a few???

Yeah, it does look smaller than the old room. You know what that means- you have to clean it more often ;) .

Oh I forgot, Sam this shot is for you:


Yes, Evan the room is much smaller!! But it's centrally located now it my vast empty house.

AHAHAHAHHAAAHHAHAH the only place for tube glue to be!

Dude, whats your address, i'll send you a bottle of Tamiya super thin to replace your tube of pox.

It took some serious effort for me to toss that in the ol' garbage bin. So many fond memories.....especially the smell!

I've got some Tamiya Extra Thin, guess I'll start having to use it now! :)

Here she is, after a year-long (at least) hiatus, I've got her back up and running. Plenty of natural light for the first time in well, ever. :)

Yeah Tony, the Carpet Monster is going to be well fed. :)

LOL. Good call James!! Already got some drops on it this afternoon.

Those who can... :D
White carpet, and white wall? No ?*!~$# way you can keep them clean.. :D Any time you want to paint get some protection around, because if not, it is 99,99% sure you'll get it all around. :rolleyes:
Nice bench, BTW :thumb:

Well....does it make models too? Let's see some progress.

See you Tuesday,

Yes, it is helping me actually make some progress Rick. But I don't have a good camera to take shots. This was taken with my camera phone. However, you will see my 38(t) manana.

Hell, I've painted and re-painted that thing about as many times in the past three days that it counts for about four models. :)

Hi Stuke,

That chair would kill my back! Something with arms and a comfy seat is my choice.

Looks good...

Tony, I have a much better seat but it's parked in front of the PC and I'm too lazy to take it up the stairs everyday! :)

Tony the Mutt, my friend, tv dinner stands are man's greatest (or darn close) greatest invention ever!

Thanks for looking Luiz, I'm really starting to grow fond of the space. I'm surrounded by modeling "goodies"!

Hey! did you forget the old rule? Never tur your back to the room! :D Nice bench.
