Alec,
Sorry to not reply to your comment about the photobucket link sooner. I had not set my preferences there to "share" publically. I thought I fixed it a while back but I think I need to set something else to open it up to those who want to browse. got to check that again after the weekend. thanks!

This was my old Work Station



This is my new Work Station after buying my wife dinner and a bunch of flowers, to let me move into the Family Room.

Hi Everyone

Christian,

WOW--that is some really great organization and use of that space. One of the best I have seen here so far. I also took a look at that B-17--awesome work in the build and finish--all in 1/72!! We have to see more! Best wishes.

Thanks guys!
It was a hell of a lot of work (90% of the furniture/equipment is heavily customised ). Most of the DIY time was consumed by constructing spraying booth made out of Ikea workstation (I've adapted and strip down extractor engine with some replacement parts from pre-existing spray booth and voila wall desk with an option of closing a lid and leaving neat and clean look of the room). Here is a old post of mine: http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1278446589&postcount=7 Let me know if you need more shoots of it (in case if anybody would like to use this design)

Another big hitter was an attempt to set-up user-friendly "sanding section". Sanding is not my favourite part of modelling and dust that is created was on my black list. There is a shoot of it where you can see Proxxon sander placed on plastic crate... wanted to have minimum amount dust in the room - so drilled entire top lid with tiny holes - to be exact nearly 2k of it - now all particles are falling inside the crate and my room is clean and fresh all the time (excess is easily wiped out by large brush - just couple of swings and entire surface is clean).

Currently starting the real deal with scale modelling hobby and really looking forward to professional scale modelling :-)

Cheers
Christian

OMG the sanding center is something I HAVE to do. I recently got sanding dust all over my work area and it has gotten on my nerves really bad--thanks for revealing what you did. I would love to see a few closeups of the sanding station if you have the time--THANKS!!

Here is my little allocated space, I just finished moving into the corner and building the paint shelf, still working on moving the stash onto the black shelving unit. I got back into the hobby about a year ago and just found this wonderful place a month or so ago.

I have the exact same black plastic shelving unit--lightweight and easy to move around.bravo! thanks for sharing. everyone gets ideas from seeing how the workbenches are laid out in so many different spaces.nice organization.

Hi everyone , some nice mancaves out there, here is mine , not the best photos I'm afraid.
It's only a tiny room but I have squeezed everything I need in there I have 3 basement rooms and hope to turn one of them into a workshop in the future, I am waiting for the builders to fit external insulaion to the house (it's over 100 years old and made of single stone walls) the builders should be starting before the end of next month weather permitting, and I will then start to renovate the whole house internally
Anyway here we are it's just a box room 6 x 8 feet

thank you for showing us your work area. looks like you have some nice natural light and a view? the space is what you make it--if it works it works. good luck with the renovations as you go along.
