My Modeling Cave Coming Together

Four months after moving I finally got around to doing a little organizing in my Modeling room (or Studio as I insist SWMBO call it).

Up to today my stash of 250+ kits was stacked up taking up about 1/4 of the floorspace.  Today I migrated it to an unused closet in the back of the house and did some general organizing and tidying up.  I still need to get another couple of electrical outlets installed and get some more shelving sorted.  The cheapo fake wood shelf in the back right corner is temporary.  I also need to get some more of my aviation art collection framed for the walls, but that will have to wait a month or so because the owner of my local framing shop took about a month off for the holidays. 

Still more to do to it, but it's starting to feel like I'm fulfilling my long time dream of a dedicated Modeling Man Cave!










Found this picture in a thrift shop for $3, advertised as buy it for the frame...I just had to have it to hang in here.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

FAR too tidy to be an actual modelling room........................  ;D

You must have your real workspace hidden away elsewhere.  ;)
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

This, I assume is the before  picture of a before and after sequence.  Please may we have a photo in about six months time?

It looks very well laid out at the moment.

Far too few shelves. Mark my words - there is no such thing as an undershelved hobby room.  ;)

I agree. It may look nice and tidy with what you have built so far, but build a few more models, collect a few more books and you rapidly run out of space!

It does look good and it's definitely a studio rather than a room  ;D
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Before long the temporary shelving is permanent and you're working out how to squeeze extra shelves into all your unit .

It's a studio, not a modelling room!
It's horribly tidy and neat!  :o
Not a man-cave at all! Where are the piles of half-built models, tools, junk etc?
And the beer cans forgotten in the corners?
Lot of work before it's a proper modelling space.
And you have already installed a carpet for the monster.... :banghead:

;D ;D ;D ;D

Too tidy,  have you thought of hanging your models from the ceiling?

JoeP

Yes, why aren't any hanging from the ceiling?   ;D
Also, how do you manage to avoid the inevitable build up of dust?   :o  :rolleyes:

:thumbsup:

JoeP
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

I have become a huge fan of wall mounting.  Here is my garage wall. Great use of space, easy to bring them down for dusting or "research".  Simple J hooks for the heavies, simple picture hangers and fishing line for the small aircraft.

I'm not a huge fan of ceiling hanging.  I do want to do some wall mounts though.

Also happy to report that after finishing a build it is far less tidy.
