New Modeling Room...ALMOST up and running.
« on: October 08, 2020, 03:32:15 pm »
Well after a few months of no building because of our move, I FINALLY have my new dedicated Model Room coming together.  I'm planning on some more shelving and some drawer units from Ikea this weekend.  Also needing a new desk chair, floor mat, and more lighting, but overall I'm happy with it.  I have five other Robert Taylor and Nicholas Trudigan aviation prints I need to get framed, and some will go in here to go with the Trudigan Normandy Spitfire print (I actually bought that one on June 6 in St Mere Eglise in Normandy. 

I've ordered another LED desk lamp, a new larger cutting mat, and a Vallejo paint rack.  On deck is the Eduard Hellcat that I started back in early summer.  I think the plan is for it to be a What If Aleutian anti-shipping bird with big cannons. 

Anyway...here it is as a nearly done WiP.  Still trying to decide on stash storage.  For now they take up floor space. 





So I got that going for me...which is nice....

No, no, no. This won't do at all!!!
It's far too clean and organized.

Looking good!

Fear not Tom.  Give me a week at the bench and it will look like a grenade went off.

Stash needs to be out of sight to prevent tricky questions like "don't you already have enough you haven't made yet?".

Fortunately she just shakes her head and sarcastically tells me I need to order a model.

It could be wprse. To keep your better half quiet, show her this train layout/sleeping room (lower down the page)  ;D

Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.
