    Ad, it would have cost much less if I hadn't got the rip-off carpenter who did it for me!
    No, I would definitely not recommend the guy, not because of the work which was good, but he was a real thief may he defecate sea urchins for the rest of his life!

    He must have really pissed you off Aldo, i really can't imagine the level of pain something like that would cause. However, he would have to swallow them whole first.

    As promised, here are some more shots of the other sides of the workshop.

    First there is the Preparation Desk where the components are prepared for assembly.


    There is the side table for conversion, masking and other odd work...


    ...and the assembly table,



    And finally, the Secondary Spraying Station where detail spraying like mottle and fine lines are done. (also when I feel cosier in the workshop than at the larger spray desk)

    Qed tkomli tbellahni Aldo. I know that i visited once but this is really shaking the memory and having every area explained makes me realise how lucky you are to have such a large area to dedicate to the hobby. I could fit at least 10 of my worktops in your space and still be able to fit in an exercise machine for when you get tired sitting down. I think that your workshop takes first prize for neatness, organization and space.

    Thanks Brian and Luke.

    Having space is the key to a decent work area. The basement which is at road level anyway had spaces for 4 cars but since the maximum we will ever have is 2, it was quite easy to convert part of it into the modelling room. Besides, it gives me easy access to transport when I finish the architectural models. It will also double as a teaching area in future...

    Sure! We all do; it's called MODELLING!

    Thanks Dottore - didn't see your post. Actually I do use it as a classroom because occasionally, I get selected students to visit for practicals.

    MY NEW AIRBRUSHING DESK Very Happy Very Happy



    With the help of my bro we built a comfortabe, spacious, well lit desk (for modelling only!...unlike the old one) Where i ACTUALLY have a chair to sit down!
    It is in the garage and as you can see there still is a lot of rubbish under the desk. Like chairs, aladdin heaters, xmas trees, pots, dustbins, bags (my mom keeps everything Evil or Very Mad) and all around the garage inlucing insects pale




    Typical 'scenario'. I have 2 energy saving lights ontop of the frame and a desk light.





    OLD airbrushing desk affraid

    It was my brothers idea actually scratch

    Keep in mind this is for airbrushing only, general works are done in my room.

    We recycled a lot of stuff... the wooden desk & legs were lying uselessly around the garage & light shades were from old lamp shades.

    The Klear is there because i tried mixing it with acrylic gloss black. to make it glossier and stronger & too see what happens. its great when mixed with acrylic for handbrushing cheers
