    Perpetual workbench and stash



    That's my bench, just a big area to work on, plus the side bench for organizing projects or general collection of junk. The drawer units below hold (from left to right) partially or completed projects, paint/liquids and misc tools.



    The gundam/sci-if stash



    The real military stash.

    Re: Perpetual workbench and stash

    That's a darn good collection of kits there, containing all sorts of hardware, and your workbench is making me jealous.

    I've been building for almost 20 years, so I've accumulated a lotta stuff.

    I'm slightly OCD, I find a messy bench causes me to lose focus.

    And this thread isn't just for me, this is for everyone.

    Ah, in that case, perhaps this thread can be merged with the "Post your work area" thread.

    Workstations

    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.
    Wife: You bought another kit...?
    Me: Mind yer busness woman.

    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.
