Title: Time to show us your workbench
Post by: Dave W on September 14, 2018, 11:52:27 AM
We are always excited and impressed to see the astonishing models made by our members but we don't often get a glimpse of the workbench where these works of art come to life. So it's time to relax and show everyone your workbench/ model desk and don't be worried if your work area is a bit cluttered and untidy.

Here's my happy place in Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia. It always resembles a war zone and at the heart of this organised mayhem a Wingnut Wings Clerget Camel is emerging.

So let's see what everyone else's model building space looks like!

You caught me with a clean bench, which in itself is worth a photo. I have been a bit under the weather as I just had all my teeth out to make room for dentures that don't fit, so the bench has stayed clean for 24 hrs now. I'm sure I'll be back to messing it up soon.

We all know about the works of model art that our late founder Des Delatorre created, so it may not be a surprise that his neat and methodical approach to model making was reflected in his hobby bench environment

    I now understand why I like the opportunity to view fellow Builder's work areas; it makes me feel normal and less guilty about the general mess and chaos in my own space! With the exception of Des' pristine working environment my "Happy Place" as Dave has called it is pretty average when it comes to clutter. I compliment Bud on his effort to spruce up his bench with a cold imported Ale, my desk is no stranger to that sort of addition and I'm not even scheduled for Telford this year!
    I have taken possession of our small (9 X 10 feet) Den as my Model display and work space, Computer, and Aviation Library room and placed my lifetime collection of "I love me" photos and keepsakes around the perimeter to remind me I wasn't always a 70 plus year old with arthritis, a heart condition, and 25 extra pounds to drag about daily! My "Bench" is a converted old roll top desk and I do my air brushing and soldering in the heated attached garage. I can only fit roughly half my collection in the room's self built display cases thus I have a large Ikea cabinet in the basement Family Room area for the rest and another will be required imminently.
   Here's the Bench after a serious clean up in January of this year.

    Some of the Reference collection.....

(https://i.imgur.com/ClPBS6O.jpg)

    ...... and about half of my model collection:

     ..... and here's a candid shot of the Bench as she was this morning, complete with the evidence of a good Irish Red Ale consumed last night while I pondered the next move on the LVG.

    Great idea Dave, I hope to see many more posts here!

Evening All,

Dave has referred to the wonderful models that we see on this site and where we make them. I do not know whether space correlates with quality of product but here is my space, the core of which is the tray which measures 12inches (30cm) x 9 inches (22cm). The photo shows about 1/2 of the space on my desk. I do have some drawers in a small cupboard in the corner of the room where I store other paints, plastic sheet, rod, strip, etc, and a couple of old series 1 Airfix kit boxes with scrap and various bits which I am working on, but otherwise this is it! It may account for the small size of most of my models. When I was building the base for the Dornier flying boat I had to put it on the floor of the room in which I work. The room doubles as a study/writing area and my desktop computer on one side of the desk (not visible in photo): I have to be able to move my modelling area away during the day so that I can use the space to work on. I have a couple of glass cabinets in my lounge, and some purpose built perspex cases in my work room for displaying the models. I know that compared to those modellers who work on the dining room table/lap I am lucky!

You can see how untidy my desk is all the same...... but as a psychologist once told me, a tidy desk is the sign of an untidy mind!

Here is my "Man cave". Most parts of it are build by myself.Fortunately, I recently cleaned up my desk and was able to take a picture before it disappears under all kinds of stuff again. The left half is currently besieged by my wife she is  making photo albums, cards and other women's stuff.

all the tools are on top or inthe drawers to the right, as is most of the paints

also a picture of my new cabinet, looks a bit empty for now, but hope to fill it soon. (the other cabinets I could not take pictures of, they are complete and filled up, but also in the one cornes that is still a mess!!!)
That is the WnW Junkers D.I on my desk, waiting for final assembly. Futher pictures are elsewhere with the Junkers decals topic.

Got mine from Hobby Zone USA on Ebay, the owner is Micheal Benoklyn (spelling?) the guy who runs Cybermodeler.

Fantastic service.

Be warned though, the units come as a flat pack and require a lot of assembly.

Got mine direct from Hobbyzone in Poland. I bought them in one large order, it worked out the cheapest way once shipping was included.

As has been said, they arrive flat packed and need glue and masking tape to put together. They come with magnets to be inserted in the sides, top & bottom - this ensure they click together and hold together. Clever, but it can take a while to build them, especially if you buy a lot!

I'd recommend getting the 2 drawer units over the 6 & 3 drawer versions - they are cheaper, quicker to build and offer more flexible storage. I'd also recommend the corner units with the open shelves, rather than the version with drawers - much cheaper and again offering more flexibility. The WIP and open units allow more space for storing larger items, and the paint racks can be made to measure for differing paint sizes - for example, you could have 36mm Tamiya size holes in the 1st row, with 26mm Vallejo or AK Paints in the other rows. As I paint almost exclusively with Tamiya acrylics, I just went went with mostly 36mm.

The free standing tool holder is good.

Nice space Guy.

About 10 years ago we remodeled the house and I had the contractor build my shack, 10x16 with AC and Heat.

Air for the air brush is piped underground from the garage so I don't hear when the compressor turns on.

Now 10 years later it needs a bath and a paint job.

I am very lucky to live in a 1950's architecturally designed house with a downstairs studio of about 2.5 m wide x 12 m long = 30 m2 (300 sq ft) which is deep in the bush that surrounds us. It is very peaceful. The original design included many built in cupboards and the house is still entirely original. I may be slightly strange among us as between work sessions I clean everything away - I can't stand mess.

Having all these cupboards help and I know where everything is in my modelling space even if others don't. Our house is three storeys high and I once, years ago bothered to count all the cupboards and drawers that it had - 285! That doesn't include all the built in open shelving which is equal to or exceeds that. But we have our issues with this - mostly that we put stuff away and can't remember where it is. We will need serious help if we ever move as our storage capacity is almost limitless. Lots of people complain about lack of storage - we have too much!

Evening All,

I have been looking at this thread recently and have to admit that I am more than a little jealous of some of you lucky .......s! I know that I have a bit of a reputation for my Heath Robinson methods but there are times when I really would like to be able to have a go with a lathe to turn some small metal parts. I have bought some sophisticated and modern tools recently - ie a Dremmel drill and soldering iron! However when it comes to workspace I still use my desk which has all sorts of things on it (mostly untidy), and I still use this, after 55 years or more, (I cannot remember the exact number):

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48652150018_7eba585e19_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2h8dZbJ)

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48652597461_1e8559803f_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2h8ghcg)

This is my modelling tray - it was given to me by my mother when I started seriously building kits (I was about 10 or 11 years old at the time) and she suggested that I could keep all of the pieces on it and not spill paint on the table or floor: it meant that I did not have to spread newspaper when I wanted to do some modelling. It is probably 80+ years old and is rigid because it is made from paper machie/fibre. It had a floral pattern on it which was very faded and slightly damaged, so I painted it with the Humbrol colours that I had to hand at the time! I put paper over the tray, (an A4 sheet fits perfectly as you can see), and replace it periodically when it gets too messy or torn. I have used this in more places than I care to mention: for 30 years it sat in a drawer waiting for me to pick up the hobby again! The tools on it are the ones I use and have used most of the time - the tweezers on the right are older than me: they were given to me by my father who had no further use for them because they were "worn out" - that was over 55 years ago! I used to have a nail file that was my mothers but that broke and had to be replaced with a new one - I use it to apply body putty and open tins of Humbrol enamels. Circumstances dictate that I have to model on a limited budget, but I also enjoy the challenge of using simple basic tools and techniques to see what I can make - sometimes my accuracy may not be quite 100% but provided that I do not say anything, nobody seems to notice. With my larger models I do have to make jigs which sit on my desk or a spare table, but these are only temporary. All my materials are kept in a small cupboard with drawers, and my references are in my rather large library. I do have two glass cabinets and some perspex boxes to store/display my models and keep the dust off.

In short modelling is integrated into my home - no special place here...! 

Stephen.

Stephen, that is a very minimalistic approach - but seems to be very effective!
You are not the only one: there is a swiss diorama builder, recently creating a great book (at the moment in german, soon in french), who is doing his work on a small tablett  8)

Terri, lovely space for spending a lot of relaxing hours!


very functional for simultaneous builds if required too.
There is a big improvement for such builds from IKEA:

You can remove the drawers, and on each of them has a cork floor. And the lowest level can take a Eduard kit box easily.
I use two of them, and have a safe storage for all painted and glued parts of started biplane kits ;)

Cheers,
Frank

Very nice modeling space, Terri.

Stephen - I didn't know tweezers could wear out!  ;D
After seeing the basic tools you work with, I'm doubly impressed with what you accomplish - you are a master builder.

Lot's of great looking spaces guys!  I remodeled my hobby space earlier this last summer/fall. Got some of the Hobby Zone modules to help organize things, built a spray booth, and am now waiting on some shelving, to go above my bench to display my helmets, hats, and military headgear.

Pics to come later.
