Alright. Almost done with my new man cave and almost done with my new bench. Still have to make a spray booth and a couple things to get mounted to it! Since this pic mid afternoon, I have pulled out my 66 GTO Tin Indian project and getting some future on the body to seal it. Also will be going back over the interior and finishing it off again! LOL. Thanks. Jody

Well, now I see just WHY most of the models posted on this board look so darn outstanding; a well stocked and well organized work area is key !! B)

Here's my workbench on the last Saturday of November, 2009.

The first car has occupied my time this week. It is an original MPC 1968 Barracuda body from the original "Hemi Under Glass" kit that I am restoring for a friend. It was a promo-style body until I opened up the hood.
Posted Image
It is a decent survivor with all scripts intact, but there was some glue damage that needed attention.
Posted Image
Another area that required attention was the front fender openings. A previous owner had filed back the rear edge of the openings, so I replace the lower fender with a patch panel from the last reissue of the AMT ex-MPC 1969 Barracuda. I still need to replace the missing fender trim. One more addition will be front vent windows as the HUG body was cast without them.

This body just came out of the "purple pond'.
Posted Image
This is an MPC 1972 Pontiac Firebird Formula that I received this week from an Ebay victory. Paid $25 for it. Formerly brush painted Testors gloss black, it has some model glue fingerprints. Nothing that cannot be repaired. The glass was not "hard glued" to the body, only tacked at the rear posts. I have another body just like this one, but the roof needs major work because the builder used a half tube of orange Testors to glue the glass, causing major meltage and warpage. The roof looks like it has double humps!!! I consider this new one a good find.

Finally, my AMT '66 Mercury Cyclone annual is still on the bench, patiently awaiting final assembly.

I've shown you mine, now let's see yours!

I would love to show you my work bench. If I had one. I had an L -shaped 50s diner booth that I used to build on. White Naugahyde with red piping with a mushroom pedestal table with red formica top with aluminum trim. Sold it when I moved in with my new wife.


I am between work benches right now.

oh and here's the only two cars on my bench at this time,
my "Christine"- needs final detail work ( heater hoses and the battery cables done) and the chrome for the hood glued.
Posted Image

and My Mom's Duster Replica- it showed up here in my shop again, looking for some new white walled shoes, so she'll get some and go back in here display case. Edge of the hood could use touch up too I reckon.

heres some shots of my model room and workbench. i try to not start projects and not finish them so i keep my current builds to a minimum (though that changes with whim). right now anyway ive just got the wild dream and the jaguar on the bench.

active work bench:

secondary work bench where i mostly store partially completed assemblies:

Posted Image


and a staging area sort of table with new kits, extra room for current projects, stereo systems, etc:

Posted Image


i am not really used to having a lot of room to spread out in! even it is getting filled up though, but boy this is so much better than my previous building environment!

Is it just me or have you noticed that sometimes cleaning either aggrevates the problem, or doesn't cure it?
