The Model Room
Posted by Mark76 on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 11:19 PM

I have been modelling for around 8 months. In that timeI have built a room which is becoming more cramped by the day. Nevertheless, I love my space away from the world. I'm just wondering where everyone else works their magic. Smile

I wouldpost pictures of my model room but I don't know how

 

One on the bench and already thinking about what to build next!

"My room" is MY room. My lovely bride is always on me because of how cluttered it is. But...its MY room and I'm quite comfy in there just the way it is!!! :-)

I build my models on my desk, which also has an under the desk keyboard and my monitors. Model dust and glue is heck on the keyboard...but I love having the PC available for reference search.

I finished of a little better than half the basement, to be the "War Room".

The main section is roughly 12x12. Bench is "built in".

Continuing with this main section...

The larger section...living room size...had more display shelves, before I moved the band gear in.

Built in, special place for helos!

What a room.  I've got a section of the garage.

Is that snow outside?  It's been so long since I've seen it, I'm not sure. 

ut I still don't miss it.

Yup...just a little. We got about 5 inches, Monday night/Tuesday morning...then we were up in the 40's yesterday and today. Got to spend the whole night at my airport, keeping the snow off the runway/taxiway...only to have it all melt away later in the day.

I just got done setting aside some room in the basement myself. Had some of thise metal shelves leftover from an old project and this was a great way to put them to work. I've got the table saw doing double duty as the air compressor stand. I did spend a couple bucks on the Rubbermaid storage bins. Now all I have to do is get the crap off the table and into them!

Here's mine. Nothing to crow about. I moved to WA from CO just over a year ago, and until now it's all been in storage. We bought a house in October, finally. We just moved in 2 months ago, so it will take some time to get it set up like I want it. But this works for now.

My stash and completed kits, still boxed up in the back corner. Bench at right:

These days are different, but I know if I fired up that GK when I was 17 or so, all those AC would be on the floor before the bridge. Surprise

 

Now I still play an Ernie Ball 'Ray through GK (the only way), but at human volume. Of course Flea is an old man like me now too.

We live in a manufactured home with very little extra room, so we bought one of those Home Depot 16x16 outbuildings and turned it into a craft room. We bought some 6' plastic tables that go all the way around. My wife has half and I have the other half, although she complains that my half keeps spilling over onto hers. Now she wants to redo the upstairs for herself. So, mission accomplished. :-)

Believe it or not, most builds stay in place...there are a few that "dance" a bit. When I built the shelves, I put a piece of trim across the face, creating a "step/fence"...weebles will wobble, but they won't fall down!

Thanks Steve. Got it now.

My space away from it all.

And my mini-stash. Still working up to a few.

My goal back in the day was to make weebles explode, forget wooble.

 

Seriously, everyone back then carried a Marshall Half at a minimum, so as a bass player I had to use two 210 heads with 4 cabinets sporting 18s just to keep up. And even then it was felt in your chest more than heard. To be young and stupid...

 

These days it's an Apogee through an iPad and Sennheisers for the most part. You could be repairing watches next to me and not be effected.

That "Hack stack" is the other guitar players...Legacy and Mashall cabs with a Peavey Butcher head. I run a Peavey Ultra 120(tube) through a pair of Ampeg cabs(the stack by the walk out.) I keep the bass rig for messin around and for trying out bassists...have yet to find one that can deliver. These days it's just me, the other guitar and drummer, just jammin our songs a couple times a month. Nothin like the good ole days of practicing 2-3 nights a week, plus playing out every weekend.

I used to run Peavey Mark IVs in twin with the 4001 Rick Stereo back then, but these days I only use GK and StingRays, but I keep a Bassman on hand to mess around with the Ventures on my Tele.

Too bad we're not closer, I think I could give you a run. I was weaned on Geezer and the Harris gallop, but I've been covering Flea for the past 10 years or so, especially the older stuff than no one wants to touch. Add the Trujillo three finger runs and I'm set for most thats out there.
