There are a lot of interesting workbenches here in this thread. Some of them are really little shipyards – amazing!

Now I would like to show you the place where my models, planes and ships, grow up.

I have a small self made working desk with some IKEA stuff for all my tools, parts etc. under and on the right side of the desk.

Some of my models are next to the desk, mostly the ones I’m working on now or in the near future.

I like it to clean the desk after working on a model because I work mostly on different jobs and also I don’t want that my cat finishes the models!

:lol_1: :lol_1:

For displaying my models I have a glass cupboard at the backwall of my room with some place for my books in it.


Cheers

Christian

Hi Christian,

This thread has turned into an Ikea showroom - I had two of those lights before one of my cats (the three-legged one shown on my Dreadnought build) decided it was one-too-many! :eyebrows:

For myself, I can't post pictures of my workbench: I simply don't have one. I'm very space-limited, stuck in a modern semi, and my work moves from:

The attic. Floored & lit - but very cold at this time of year, so while I'm frozen out of there for a few months, at least I know my insulation is ok! This is ideal for the big messy jobs, though I have to run power up from the floor below. Cutting frames, major assembly, etc. happens here. More careful work occurs on:

The kitchen table. Most of my hull planking occured here, as did the glassfibring of the inside of the hull. It's warm, handy for the kettle and <ahem> any Rock channels on the radio, and it keeps me in touch with the family - always a good move! Smaller work is done on the:

Coffee table. Less messy jobs (making details and boats, for example) takes place here. I tend to use a plastic box for the bits and pieces, along with my tools, and this means that I can scrape all the bits back into it at the end of a session.

I know a dedicated area that I can keep cat and child-finger free, and that I don't have to leave pristine every time I use it, would speed my building up, but it's impractical at the moment...meanwhile, I've been looking at the photos in this thread with a measure of envy and inspiration. I'm very impressed by many of the "workbenches" on show here (palaces, more like) and can only sympathise with others who have to make do with a corner of a table.

Andy

Andy, the most important is to have fun building models. It doesn't matter if you have a large or a smal place for modeling. A friend of mine built all his models on the desk in the living room as I did when I started building models again for a few years.

Jef, I try to keep it clean because the room is smal and I have my finished models there too. So if you work, sanding etc. you have some dust there and that is not really good for finished models even when they are under glas :lol_1:

cheers :wave_1:

One question, is this from IKEA?

I would guess so. The design of the drawers give it away. On the other hand, there are those plastic wheels.....But I would still say IKEA.

I believe so that's IKEA stuff...at least I own 2 of such things (very similar) one being for office stuff and other just for paints; wooden bases; modelling tools and photo-etch.

Those that have size restrictions could use a closet or one of the RTA Armoirs (sp?) or TV cabinets available from outfits like O'Sullivan. That way you have a dedicated area that can be closed when not in use and is either out of the way or a piece of furniture.

Massena is in the foreground followed by Carnot (both Dream Festival Workshop), Maine (Combrig), the hulk of of a Combrig Suvuroff, two Yangtze Patrol hulls, and the nearly complete JDS Hatakaze (Skywave).

I`ll complete Massena, then either Maine or Carnot after that, probably another scratch build (USS Palos or Panay).

Hi Folks,
I like this thread - it shows me the same mess like on my desk almost everywhere. So this is what it usually looks like:
Image

But as I didn't find anything anymore I had to clean it up (as regularly every few months).
Image
Here's the whole place with pictures and plans on the wall and the model at his acutal condition in the front.
Image

Problem is, that it will look like the 1st picture in less than a week...

A very impressive fleet you have there!
What's the ship at the top of the first two photos, with the large flight deck aft? Reminds me of a modernised version of the Currituck/Pine Island seaplane tender (old Revell kit)

Unbelievable, you got yourself a ship museum there. How long did it take you to complete all those models.
