    Jason, great idea. I've wanted to start a thread like this for ages; only embarrassment over the state of my own dingy shed has prevented it. :lol

    Your Ma.K stash may actually be < my Ma.K stash! (Just kidding, and you'd have a lot more resin than me.) I like the K&H rack, wow, what'd that cost? You should take a couple of stereo pics, so we can get the vibe in 3d. Always fun to do that.

    I gotta clean up and take some pics...

    Nice setup Jason!

    No pic. I guess it's why I don't build much in the last couple of years. Closet stuffed with hobby gear comes out to the kitchen table to make stuff in tiny NY apartment. Paint out on deck when the weather is good. I think I'll start sanding and gluing outdoors too in the coming spring and summer. I chose to live close enough to walk to the office instead of train it in. Can't live with the fumes in a studio apartment.

    That's what I want. Might have to move first...

    No kidding. Hobby shops are dropping left and right. It's a tough business to have a brick and mortar store nowadays.

    When I was a kid I always used to visit the original Squadron Shop in suburban Detroit to see all the great builds in display cases. That started this passion. Then Joe Johnston got me interested in industrial design...

    Here's the corner in the rear of my workshop with my computer and bottled paint desk (burried under everything) this is where I sit and search through kits for parts.
    No matter how hard I try to keep it in some sort of order, just one frantic search for a part wrecks havoc, though it's actually somewhat organized in this pic.

    Jason-- that rug really ties the room together! LOL

    I wish I had a space like that, but I'm an apartment dweller. I'm looking at buying a house this year, so hopefully I'll have a spot to build in.

    I'd love to see more pictures of your paint booth and how you have it vented.

    Moffeaton, Jason is it? I need a paint booth like yours- enlarged a bit. As it stands now, I have to wheel everything outside to spray.

    I sometimes get passers by poking their heads in. Is your work area there off limits to children and the elderly & such?

    Since I lost my studio I'm back to where I began as a kid, the kitchen table! As I was rather used to my perfectly suited studio this sucks big time...

    Looking very tidy, J. It's great to see everyone else's man-caves, too. I'm loving that studio-scale donor kit collection, Jim. Most impressive!

    Here's:

    Just took these earlier today.

    That is an impressive collection of model kits. Mine is nowhere near as impressive given it's just a corner of my bedroom. All the heavy tools are in the basement shop area.
    At some point my game system collection and entertainment center will replace it all.

    I also have stuff stored in the closet but I think that's going to be getting a cleaning.

    It's pretty small but it does offer the unique benefit of not having to stop building when nature calls.

    Wicked sweet collection of doner kits in your "studio". I see some kits I need to get for my stash.

    Looks like its time to change that sanding pad there bud.

    You all suck ....

    Unfortunately, organization is not one of my strong points.

    My current workshop is full of a 1:1 x.wing, but here is my desk at ILM circa 1986 -

    Extra points if you name the prototype model in the image

    I'll get some good shots of my current workshop this weekend.

    :lol

    Pics or it didn't happen! :)

    Isn't that the thing they're now calling some sort of gunship? Dornean gunship? (Whoever the "Dorneans" were, lol.) IIRC a friend of mine was the first guy to spot it in the film - seems it has attracted a kind of following since he posted caps of it.

    Yes please!

    At first glance, I thought this was a Starbucks.

    It looks so cozy there.

    cozy? lol
    not quite . unfinished basement, fairly cool in the winters, cold concrete, dust (servers as work bench for other home projects too). think you're likely feeling the cherry veneer on the knock-down module furniture along with the auto-camera-setting provided more reds than actual

    The prototype was for a movie released in 1985. Now that I think about it, I actually don't think anyone has tackled doing the models from this film, either in Studio Scale or otherwise. Wait, I just did a search and see Randy Cooper made one, but not the ship that this prototype is for.

    "Studio" is a loose term for me, spread out over my home and office!! I have a large display of my work in my lab at my office, but also have the tools I use in my business at my disposal as well! At home, all of my airbrush work, sanding, drilling, etc; are done on my garage bench area, and assembly work is done in my walk-in closet space in my house!! I have a stand-up attic for kit storage, but I've thinned my collection down to a few hundred kits. I was blown away by some of your studios, and the amount of kits a few of you have are incredible!!!!

    If you ask my wife where I am this is usually where I spend most of my time at home. Nothing real fancy after reading this thread I cleaned up a bit and organized. It needed done.. I have about five rooms in my basement and the previous owner had most of this setup as his shop.. I added some fresh paint another bench and it does the job.. Love the bathroom shop if the bathroom was not two doors down I would consider putting in a toilet..
    The fourth picture I got the idea "fine scale modeler mag".. If you want to pick up your work and move to another spot this little organizer is nice...I have enjoyed looking at other's work space..
