  1. Hi everyone, wow does time fly when you are having fun thanks for all the comments have not been on for a while, but very close to finishing my and my dear wife's hobby room not touch a model since last July Put some laminate down for the floor (no carpet ) then added some cabinets and a small fridge for the CA glue etc, then added a lot of LED lights Put a nice TV in there so that we can watch the hockey games then started making the frame work to hold the benches Then made the bench frame out of 1 x 3 Fir, started by joining two pieces and made Tee's for added strength This is how they turned out Then added 3/4" MDF for bench tops After that was done added 1 x 2 Fir all around edges Next up was then to glue the Formica onto the MDF and route around edges with 1 1/16 bevel tool Painting of the frames are done did not take pictures of that so now just started to put equipment in so next pic's will be of the finish room Until next time Regards Richard

  4. Hi Soeren Thanks for the kind words, its been awhile not done any modeling since my last post everything is in boxes due to moving from Alberta to Vancouver Island to retire after 43 years in the steel fabrication business Bought a house with the basement not finished so here are a couple of pic's showing the new model room I am building in its early stages, room size is 37' x 19'-6" Made a bulk head to cover all the piping and installed sub floor so that I am not walking on concrete Now this has been dry walled Under the stairs will have a compressor and dust collector So until this is finished no modeling for me Until next time Regards Richard
