this photo isn't in my shop, but in my room. I built the shelf in my shop though- for a nominal $10-$20 US, you can buy pine boards cut at your local hardware store with some dowel pegs. With those, you can assemble any size shelf you want; limited only by the size of the boards. I would not make the height any larger than 6-7 times the width of a board, as a general rule, to prevent tipping. No problem if you bolt it to the wall. When I get my own home, I plan on bolting shelves to the wall 5-6 inches above the floor so that I can vacuum underneath and not damage the carpet.

I flatten and save box tops for gundam boxes, and I'll either throw away the bottom or use it to store something. They come in handy.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/03_workshop2012.jpg


Kits on the lower shelf. Most of them are already finished or are missing parts- I need to go down there and clean out kits that are a loss or are complete by throwing out old boxes (and saving the tops!)


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/04_workshop2012.jpg


Every tool has its place in my shop, and I am very annoyed when someone takes a tool and does not return it to the shop. The electronics and soldering equipment have been moved to a plastic bin I recently acquired for free.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/06_workshop2012.jpg


Our shop also serves as a firearm cleaning station. In the back is a rifle on top of the fridge, unloaded and pointed in a safe direction. This is a second fridge my parents decided to keep. If it were my house, I would have this fridge and other vital equipment on solar or wind power via batteries. That's just me. I've seen $100-$200 in good meat wasted because of a power outage that lasted 4 days. Behind the snowman is my sink. I pour all toxic chemicals into a old tide detergent jug and have the chemicals properly disposed of.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/07_workshop2012.jpg


Various things in storage. This shelf has been cleared now for kits waiting for assembly, paint or to dry. Under the dewalt box is where my paints are now located. I took two pieces of wood, drilled holes and stuck 5 dowels in between the wood pieces, equally spaced. This helps to organize my paint jars.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/08_workshop2012.jpg


Where the Wing Gundam box is, all of that shelf was moved over to the unit to the right, and a computer placed there. I use it to keep my dinosaur running, play old games that won't work on my quad core upstairs, and to log time on kits. Above: I did not have room in my room for some kits, so they are relocated here. The smaller 1/600 Yamato is now up in my room, and was my first airbrushed ship model.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/09_workshop2012.jpg


model maker air compressor. I use a Badger 200NH airbrush and I love the results.

There is something important I need to discuss. Directly behind me is the furnace to the house, and when it engages in the winter a couple of pilot flames ignite. When I am painting, I specifically request that we turn off the heat, give the shop 1-2 hours to properly vent, then turn the heat back on. So far we have had no problems. Flammable liquids are kept 10-20 feet away from that furnace in sealed containers.



What's your shop like? Chaos, an organized mess, or neat and tidy? Mine is somewhere in the middle, but is usually messy. :p

I listen to music when building my kits. This is how I do it. Lower left corner: NEVER go without a multitool like a Leatherman or a Swiss Army Knife.



http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/12_workshop2012.jpg


Ends of old boxes were cut off and used as a sort of board/plate to rest parts on as they dry, or if I need to keep them in a safe location.


http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Jadefalcon0/2012workshop/13_workshop2012.jpg


In 2011 I had to move about 900 miles across the country. I trusted the moving company to properly pack my models and I expected them to know what they were doing. Two 1/350 ships I owned were a loss as well as a few vehicles. About 60-70% of the collection survived the moves. My MG gundams were purchased and built here at the new house. They were very sorry for the damage, and provided the costs to rebuild the kits and a little more. I used the money to purchase other kits and equipment, but one day I will rebuild those 1/350 ships, and they will look better than the first ones I did ;) My very first model ever, a 1/200 DD-445 fletcher, which looks like utter CRAP, survived the move because it was packed in a box to begin with.


When hours of work and large bills being spent on these kits, it would break my heart if this happened again. I set out, as an engineer to find a solution, and I found a cheap and easy one. There are small 3/4" thick boards that run 1.5" in width and 48" long. I have them cut at the hardware store to specific dimensions for each kit, then I use a strong posterboard as a wall. For moving a kit, I would saran wrap or plastic shrink wrap the boxes for extra protection. This would minimize damage to the kits. I lay gundams down as if the RX-78-2 were lying on the back of a truck. There is enough room sometimes for more than one kit in a box, so I "double deck" by adding in smaller blocks of wood and creating an additional floor to store additional kits.


To open the boxes, which are labeled with the contents, I used velcro dots I found at the hardware store and attached them to the door flap, then to the frame of the box itself. It's almost as bad as losing a pet (the pain), and I can't have people moving my kits and damaging them severely, especially when they don't know what they are doing. I understand when parts fall off or thin things snap, but I don't want to take the chance ever again. The 3rd prototype was tested on a trip 2000 miles driven to and back to a vacation destination, and Wing Gundam survived unscathed.

Good man Mr. Squee. I see Hobbico, Bandai, 3M, Tamiya and Plastruct stuff ;) I love that plastruct bonding stuff, but I do use cement more often than not.

Oh, that's just the HGUC kit. Still a damn fine kit, mind you. I'd never had Guiness Extra Stout before, so how intoxicated it made me with just 2 bottles (the one pictured was #2) was a learning experience.

Yikes, my scaling is off something fierce today. Between finding out about the GM Sniper II and this, I might have to go against my own word and pick up some 1/144 kits again...

Yeah, the extra stout has quite a kick to it. Not a Char kick, thankfully, but it's still pretty powerful. If that's your kinda thing though, try an Abita Turbodog!

Honestly, that's maybe a third of my hobby tools. What i keep at my main table is mainly tools i always use.

Here's my new booth i bought about a month ago. As of now, it's covered in paint. lol

I got seriously lucky with my paint collection. As you can see in my picture, I have a carousel loaded to the gills. That's actually about 1/3 of my full stock, mainly the colors I use the most.
Some years ago, a friend of mine ran a hobby shop. When it went out of business, he told me to take whatever I wanted from his stock of paint. Ultimately, I walked away with around $500 worth of paint, completely free.

Nowadays, I only ever have to restock colors I use most, i.e. Gunship Grey, Light Grey, basically detail colors.

Not much yet I know. But you have to (re)start somewhere! Firearms were moved over out of the view of the window because I had it open. We're on the ground floor. Don't want anyone getting any funny ideas. I would like to get a board running across that back wall so I can begin putting stuff on it.

My main work area is a 6 ft wide bench, 2.5 ft deep. I recently added shelves for my computer monitors since the base's were taking up way to much room.

At the moment I only have 1 drawer, mounted underneath the right side of the bench, but it's jam packed with a ton of crap lol so not much storage there. Stuff generally gathers into piles around the floor, including my growing painting/airbrushing supplies, so I need to come up with some sort of solution. I'm thinking of putting 2 racks on each underside of the desk, so they can function as both the bench support legs, and as storage drawers.

All of my interests revolve around two things - computers and tools. I wanted to use the left side for computers, which would be built dimensionally the same as a server rack, and move my computers into 4U chassis. The right rack would just be draws for different tools. It would certainly be easier to slide open a draw and pick-up a paint tube lol

I'm just getting into this so I dont use or have much tools, but I can definitely see how this can escalate quickly in short time!

Awesome thread idea, btw ;)

I'm also in need of a power supply lol Right now I got a 20 Watt 24,12,-12,and 5 volt supply with a suicide cord hooked up. Worked really well for powering a fan when I was airbrushing, not so much for electronic projects lol

There is about 2-3" of headroom above the scope, and I was thinking of mounting some supplies to a shelf, and then placing a panel over it with power taps.

The scope is an Owon SDS7102 - I payed about $500 on amazon for it a year or so back. Although a bit pricey, and took some time to save for, it was a worthwhile investment at a bargain price.

While I may not have much time to build, I am setting up a new workspace. I only have one picture of it right now and it is not much to show...

18x36 shop/garage. There will be a garage door on either end with a carport on the far end. I will be able to drive a car straight through and park it under the car port, thus giving us basically a three car garage in a two car space. There will be 8-10 ft on the west side(left) for all my tools, welder and stuff. The workbench inside will be moved outside to the garage, also giving me a space to airbrush and paint. I already have a beer fridge and a 40 inch TV to go out there as well.

Oh yeah, a lot of the car and military kits that are pictured(not the japanese cars for sure) will be sold off after the move out to the garage. Gundams are all staying, but I have way too many cars, planes and treaded thingies to keep. I will post a list here first when I finally get around to getting rid of them

Since I don't do painting, customizing or other advanced stuff my work area is pretty simple, just a table. There's a drawer where I keep the tools I use for gunpla. Right now I have no new kit, so it looks like that, with books and other school things in the way. When I start working on a kit, all that stuff I place somewhere else (on top of a shelf, on the bed....)
Since I share the room with my sister, it also doubles as a study table both for me and her. Since she has pics of her and and her friends there I covered it with the transformers leaflet.

Been Super busy with work, then the wife broke her foot about six weeks ago. She had just gotten a new-to-her car a couple of weeks earlier. I haven' really even had time to do any modeling. In the last 6 weeks, I have gotten the legs an waist done on my RG Zephyranthes. I have been lurking late at night, but not really posting. By the time I pick up the wife(she can't drive right now as it is her righ foot she broke) get home, make dinner, eat dinner, clean up dinner, get the wife settled in bed or on the sofa, I am too pooped to really do anything. I do keep watching your thread Zaku. I may also be sending a package your way as it will be easier to restart the styrene collection than sort it out after moving it.

August 22, 2014, 1:41 PM
Ouch. Im sorry to hear about her foot. How bad is it? There are a lot of little bones in the foot that can heal wrong and cause problems. I hope that doesnt happen. And its all good man im just glad you haven't given up on the hobby entirely. Life comes first. And ive been putting those styrene parts to good use. Again thanks man. Hobby supplies are rare out here in the bush. And if you see anymore figures you want there yours. These things have just been siting in a drawer the whole time.

The wife just broke her heel and sprained her foot. She is almost healed and quite the trooper. She would have made a great marine, if she wasn't such a girl(I like that about her) She is set on driving by monday(the 25th) The garage, hopefully, will be complete in another week or so. Once that happens, I can start moving the car parts... tons of those: and the model stuff. When that happens, I will let you know what I have extra and you are more than welcome to them

But seriously you are the only one who was really interested in the figures if you want more let me know.

Yup, the modeling desk in the house is moving out to the garage. It will also give me a place to paint out of the elements, which means I can set up my airbrush again. I have been without it for over three years now. I think that has been the main stumbling block to getting a lot of stuff done. Never will stop modeling, just slowing down for a bit!

Sounds like you will get to be more productive sense you can just paint them right then and there. I really need to build a ghetto paint booth.

Since getting into Gunpla again I've wanted to do some custom work. Painting. Battle Damage. Customization.

I've been a little gun shy in pulling the trigger on anything other than a straight build and some panel lining with a marker because I get frustrated. I think part of my frustration with kit building as of late comes from the fact that I currently do not have a dedicated place in the house for a true workstation. Believe it or not I build my Gundam in front of the tv in the living room. If I'm going to attempt what I'd like to attempt I need a place to paint and craft.

Right now I have two options. Both the basement and the garage have become junk storage and are in need of serious cleanings. Both would allow me plenty of room to work on kits. the garage more for painting. The basement more for detail work. My goal is to clear one or both out and set up shop.

I know from looking at the build threads a lot of you have some snazzy set ups for your work stations so I'm curious... What do you all consider essential to have in order to do your builds?

Feel free to throw up pics of your work stations if you want too.

After working on a kit using my current setup, I realized the importance of having lots of space that's close to you so if there's one thing that I consider essential to any build area, it's that. Good lighting is another one; I have the room light and another lamp that I can swing closer overhead that helps tremendously when working on tiny details.

Im hoping if I can get the garage cleared out enough I can start to paint on the scale I want to. Id have space and enough lighting. The basement is supposed to be for the wife so I'd probably continue to panel line or do detail work in the living room.

Cleaning and essentially resetting my space helps me focus on the project at hand.

Like my computer desktop has 3 folders and 3 photoshop droplets on it. That's it. And that's across 2 27" apple displays.

I've done the whole dig through boxes hobby life, but there comes a point when you decide to make this a real hobby and invest the time in making a suitable work area.

The only thing missing is a spray booth, but that's gonna wait til after the wedding. Girlfriend aggro isn't worth it.

I meant to ask, the parts seperator there up front, is it useful?

I usually drill out the female holes on my kits to make disassembly easier, but I was wondering if that tool was useful.

Or is that the thing that the 1/48 kits come with?

Squee
February 19, 2016, 5:44 PM
I absolutely LOVE this thing. It does not damage the plastic at all, the wedge is just the right angle/design. Its metal, with the white plastic protecting it. I do the same thing with my female plugs, but usually i just spin my knife blade in there, and cut the male pegs at an angle. Despite that, this thing really helps. I believe the one that comes with the Mega Size kits is made of plastic. I also got the one from entering BAKUC that you can use as a sanding block. Its that blue thing at the bottom right of the picture. I believe its a similar lever design to the Mega Size tool, and it is nowhere near as good as the metal one.

Its a bit pricey for what it is but i think its worth it if you don't want to damage your plastic/paint.

As you can see I can paint 365. I have it vented out a window with 2 fans to push the fumes up and out.

Same here. That's why the booth is up on a platform. I just can't get a good feel for the paint angle and the part sitting down. I have to be able to move around.

I like your paint holder. Neat idea! We all build where we can. Heck I was building in the back of a truck (Kenworth w900) for a few years. You have a nice portable work station.

LordThurisaz
July 31, 2016, 1:05 AM
Thanks dude! Yeah the paint holder was a idea my wife pointed out to me up at the Walmart here in town. I actually just bought another two of them so I can section out all my paints & fit more. I'll have one for Flat, Gloss, and Metallic now so it will be a ton easier to find what I want. I still think the best trick we have come up with so far is the File Holder as a Runner Organizer... makes building so much easier.

gundammonkey
July 31, 2016, 8:18 AM
G I wonder why didn't you just buy the runner holder that is specially made just for runners? it only costs like $40?? I love how the simplest things work better than the specially made "Crap" In fact I think I might steal your Idea for the runner holder. Normally I just leave them in the box and just take out the one I need at the moment. I spend a bunch of time going " What the hell happened to runner N.... A,B,F, where is N damn it!"

LordThurisaz
July 31, 2016, 3:06 PM
I even thought about this last night, so the ones I got from up at the Walmart have a fairly thick base. I'm gonna buy a pack of those little round stickers people use as pricetags at thrift sales, and then I can place one under each runner slot with each kit I build and even clearly label the runner placement... otherwise with larger kits I find myself singing the damn ABC song to figure out where my desired runner is lol...
