    What does your workshop look like?

    Post  Ray on Sun Jun 06, 2010 9:24 pm

    Watching Aldo's workshop (clinic) in persona a few days ago, and reading Alex's truly referment to it, as a Mater Dei Cardiology Operating Room Sad I thought of opening this thread here so that everyone, including our foreign brothers, would post their individual workshops, something which I've seen on other fora, but was always reluctant to shoot and post Evil or Very Mad just because my two workshops are never tidy enough to expose to "our World" Twisted Evil

    I think that this, (our workshops' pics + Internatinal Awards + Winning Models) should be included in future HiS's as it would instigate further interest in our hobby so the general public would be more aware that we DO NOT BUY THEM READY MADE Cool

    Come on My Brethren, let's start cleaning & shooting ASAP lol!

    My Workshop

    Construction area downstairs in old garden shed, which I share with my Pa and which is William's and Jeremy's during Summer holidays cheers

    This is Heaven on Earth during the GLORIOUS RAINY DAYS, sipping coffee, dragging on a cigar, and looking at the WET GARDEN on my left....and yes CONSTRUCTING Twisted Evil








    "Under construction models'" cabinet which has a sliding/folding door, which was a Philips TV Cabinet actually, and it could be locked Sad I can't remember the numerous times I recieved "NO TV PUNISHMENT" from Pa and I used to search everywhere for that KEY but to no avail Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad



    Pa's area....note the organized way contrast, tools all hanging or stashed beneath in the drawer Cool









    Painting area upstairs in my room Cool

    As you can see the painting cabinet over here is cut down water bottles Twisted Evil




    Painting area transformed into a picture shooting area Laughing

    lol! @ William's statement.......Will, the only adjustment was a new A4 paper on my cutting matt, brushed that MS & steel wool dust in the bin, and I just blew the surplus dust away, further in on the bench away from the digicam's eye lol!

    Nannu come on don't be a spoil sport Evil or Very Mad shoot and post at random Twisted Evil just look at mine and you can see that it is anything but organised. As Alex noted, Pa shows that he is an ex shiyard worker and he keeps everything in ship shape working order Cool

    Really glad I spurred this thread as it is proving quite entertaining and interesting. cheers

    Alex, dying to see yours, to see if things are the same as yesteryear Twisted Evil yes I read what is in store with two workshops now, and Ian's should prove the more interesting having permanently transformed your dining room into a workshop Embarassed pale

    Loved the "organised look " of Tiny's workshop and who can blame the cleaning lady for having "cleaned" those three tank wheels or whatever they were Sad

    Noel's look very well setup as well!

    Come on guys, shoot and post your workshops at will!!!

    i probably have the smallest, basic, clean, modelling desk. even though ive been modelling for all these years Embarassed nearly all my paints and tools fit in a small tool box. i step in the garage (for spraying) once every 3 months

    Do you all go on $100 shopping sprees randomly buying everything in 2's? Razz
