The most important part of any workspace is the desk area. I now have a much larger work surface. I have two lamps with daylight bulbs set up to illuminate my work area. I've set up the photobooth where I can easily move the light to take pictures of models that are in progress. It's hard to see in this picture, but I have a storage unit on wheels and my airbrush compressor under the table. My much used Martha Stewart self healing cutting thing helps to protect the table surface. I'd like to get a larger one to protect more of the surface.
|This is where the magic happens.|
On the ride side of the desk I have this little storage unit. The top tray hold models and things I am working on or planning to work on. Previously I put them all on a window sill. This is a little tidier. The second tray holds modelling tools. The third tray holds masking materials and extra paint brushes. The notebook on top is one I am recording details of paint mixes and things in.
I am quite fond of having a work in progress drawer to store my models in. I definitely have a lot more than this that are in progress. Many of them are just in cases still from moving.
|Those test bases are for a top secret project. More on them in a few weeks when I finish those test German infantry on the middle right.|
You can see the paints happily fit in their new home. Some of those citadel paints are from around 1998. I still use some of them occasionally.
|I don't want to think about the cost of all of my paints at $2-4 per bottle.|
So far, this new set up has been working pretty well. Most importantly, my fiance is happy that the "mess" is more contained and more organized. I am happy that I have a place to work and can keep things out while working on a project.
Thanks for visiting. Shockingly, I have 11 vehicles which I painted last week and only need tank commanders to be complete. Check back later this week for a platoon of Panzer IVs, a platoon of T-34s, and possibly an update on my 11th. Armoured Division.
