How you you keep projects safe when the spare room is needed for guests? When you are stuck or bored with a project how do you store it while working on another? The answer for me was to make a mobile work desk.

Image

It has a flap that can be raised to create a large work area, and a raised edge to contain any stray parts. It is on lockable castors. I ensured that it is narrow enough when folded down to move to other rooms.
It has storage for three projects and 5 tool storage trays. I chose to make trays instead of draws for greater flexibility and maximum storage space. They also allow a quick visual assessment for what is in each tray.

Image
Image

The aircraft is an Airfix 1/72 Lancaster, which should provide an idea of the size of the desk.

Image

Slide-in Perspex panels keep the trays in place and help to minimise dust.
Now all I have to do it use it.

Cheers Mark

Really well done desk !
My problem would be to stock all my model kits unbuilt (vintage boxes)…
My second problem is that my room is under roof.
My third problem is a propensity to buy too many old models
MY 4th problem is my wife !!! :D

Nice solution, although my houseguests are trained not to touch my things. :D

Hi

No pics as such, but I have half of the loft above our garage (double). I have a seamstress table (pull out surface 1,5x1,5M and roller door area fro tools, all the paints are in a drawer above this with the lighting above and inside. There is a double cupboard under the pull-out where I store kits and then there is a large cupboard for books, etc. Will send a pic when I get there with camera.

Very envious of people's modelling dens. Thought I'd share my humble workspace. One section of desktop space, a single shelf of the build-in bookshelves behind it, and half of the cupboard underneath....
Image
I do spread out a bit during a session, generally round to the right where the computer sits. I have to tidy everything away after each session; not so much to appease SWMBO, but to prevent inquisative hands from the 5yo & 3yo getting too close!! Spraying is done out in the garage where the compressor etc is set-up in a cut-down cardboard packing box. Garage is also where the stash is stored in a couple of big cardboard boxes.

Nice and neat CC, mine always looks as if some-one's thrown a grenade in there and shut the door.

That gives me a clean-up idea. Perhaps a bomb? Hmmmm...

Image

This was the kitchen pantry at our new digs. I can now cook and build a model at the same time, with equally hilarious results! The dog also gets fed here, encouraging her to hang out and distract me at any crucial moment. Also able to snatch up anything I drop and run off with it!

The stash was shrunk a little in the process of moving. Many kits sold on eBay, but one remained even after I sold it as the German fellow who bought it refused to pay the CLEARLY STATED postage. Oh well. I guess I'm meant to build that model after all.

Hi all, at 52 have just purchased our first Home and now that the unpacking dust has settled I thought Id share my new workshop with you.
This was my old modeling area, semi packed up prior to the move :
Image
And this is the new shed when we moved in :
Image
So now after a month of settling in it looks like this :
Image
And this is my new work space :
Image
Still a way to go with organizing everything, but at least its in a state now that I can sneek in a little building in between sorting all the new house projects that need to be attended to like : Front fence, Side Fence, Veg Garden, Chook House, garden beds,lawn grubs ...etc..etc..etc.... :heatwave:
Still...Wouldn't be dead for Quids... :D :D :D

:cheers:

Lots of room for a stash in The Castle.

Hi guys!
This was my Modelling Area 30 years ago: my bed.
Image
Yes, that was me when I was younger. And no, that's not a porn picture... :lol: I'm wearing shorts... It was a very hot summer, and I had a newly born baby... I was making a scratchbuilt LRDG truck.
Now I use a tray, where I put my models and paints when I'm working.
And this is my storage locker.

I've always thought model building was "clothing optional."
