John,
I was looking at the work table you made, I like the concept you have there. Can I offer you a helpful idea for you plastic stock, get a piece of 1" or 1-1/4" pvc pipe cut it to about 6" and fix it to you table, you can add as many as you need for the sizes most used. that way you have more room on the back section. Overall though I do like what you have done there.


Jim,

Great idea, Could make lots of uses besides styrene, Paint brushes/sanding sticks/tweezers ect. the center section is removable.

Happy Modeling

John

Here's mine in the new house. We're still working on the house and haven't moved in yet.

Here's the workbench section. You can see the paint rack with my Vallejo paints put away. The flat screen is my birthday present from my wife.

Here is the cabinet I built today. What is in it? Scroll and see.

The cabinet hold my pegboard storage! This way everything is out of the way.

Here's the full layout of the studio

Yea, I'm studying AutoCad but I can draw most of what I want to do by hand quicker. I am looking into the idea of 3D printing so if I get to that point I will have to draw stuff on the computer, but for now I am more comfortable with the table and scale rules.

I have my own hobby room....but the desk is just not big enough to work on a 1/72 scale Flower Class Corvette.

When I stumbled upon this kit, I knew this, but the boss told me to get it (a drooling hubby is embarrassing I guess), so I got the kit....and the dining table.

After 3 years of intensive uilding , the old bench got just too small an messy .This is the new enlarged design, given the room size restrictions.Still nice to have your office right next to your bed though.

click on his link in his sig line to see better pics. SO that is where the magic happens?! Honestly I was expecting to see a massive assembly line with mini dock workers to account for the MANY amazing builds that fly out of Kostas' workshop.

Funny but true. That and some sort of sci-fi object that captures water in place as he pours it on.

After moving to our new apartment, the new workbench is finished. Much smaller than before but it's ok for me.
