That's probably why my workbench has never been anything more complicated than a desk and a couple of lamps!

As you can see, my workbench is rather small, but for my scale it does not really matter. :)

Seeing both Zac's and Ondra's workspace, I can't think of a bigger contrast  :o

I don't think Ondra is showing us the full picture - where is the battery of huge magnifying glasses to see what in earth you are doing? (I even have problems seeing the whole Camel fuselage on his workbench, let alone its innards!)

It's hiding behind the paint pot on the right hand side!

Well, my boxes of kits have been moved to their new location and have broken free, to arrange themselves in a rather well behaved manner. Here is my stash in its entirety (save those that I intend to 'collect' and not build):



I stopped counting the number of kits I have when I worked out i'd need another couple of lifetimes to finish these, at the rate I build...!

Cheers,

Thanks for giving us a look into your candystore Brad.  ;)

I think I have about 1/3 of what you have,  but with the same "problem": I need more than 1 lifetime to build them.

In my defence: my wife has the same thing, only with books  ;D

So, to keep things in balance; when she buys a book, I buy....

I've had the same mindset for a wee while and decided to do something about it this year. So, all my car kits, WWII stuff and the bigger WNW (which I don't have big enough cabinets to display) went on eBay.
Well, after three months I'd cleared more than 8,000 GBP!!!

Unfortunately I seem to have bought so many books since, that the stash is the same size - just books as well as kits!

Glad to see you've got other scales than just the wee guys in there - nice collection.

Brad, the 1/48 part of your stash looks very common to mine, old kits from BlueMax, Flashback, the old Eduards, Karaya, HiTech ...

I stopped counting the number of kits I have when I worked out i'd need another couple of lifetimes to finish these, at the rate I build...!
I can really recommend Scalemates.com for stash management, what a cool web site! The usage is a bit different to what we know, but really clever.

Cheers,
Frank

Willem, the fuselage of the Camel is in the middle of the green mat, on top of the alu vice.

Addition to the bench.

My spray booth can now move up and down on my new standing table. I bought the powered frame from Amazon for a bargain, cut and stained some particle board for the top and bob's you father's brother.

Cheers,
Bob
