Holy Moly Charlie. I lived all around that city, but mostly the west end. My last residence was on Cottage St. The corner of Cottage and Smith St. That town has a lot of problems. No work, I could go on and on. Good for you on getting outta there.


The "fawn" color? I was just going to go to the Hobby store and hope it was sitting there. Hmmmm, you got me wondering now. I'll come up with something.

I'm at the corner of Dartmouth/Grinnell/Cottage, myself. Well, was, am, still sorta-kinda. Move's going slowly, as I can't get any help from anyone except a little from my dad tomorrow. I moved here to teach at New Bedford High School.....the first of far too many mistakes.

I'm looking for a Fawn color. The closest I've seen so far is Tamyia XF57 buff, the XF55 Deck Tan is pretty close to the painted areas and some cars that used a slightly darker carpet or seat bolster, but it's still not quite "there," but it's not that far off, either. I was wondering if you might've dug up something else.

Will Do! What's even crazier is I know where every part to every project is on that sucker :D


Ha :) :)

Are you sure you didn't just throw your old bench away and get another one ? They look so different !!!

Hey, I have a 2.5 foot by 10 foot bench, thats cluttered with junk in the last month and my new office desk I got from my dad cluttered with parts and junk. LOL. all that space does is grow in height! LOL. My actual workspace is just like you have, the pull out shelf for the key board. I can put my model I am workin on on that and work. When Im not working on that, I push it in and forget about it and it does not collect the junk! Its the only clean spot in my half of the basement!! LOL. Everyplace else is already cluttered and piling higher! Imagine a month ago when I finished this room off, it was empty and had tons of space. Now I am tripping over things! LOL. Jody

Mine used to be in front of the keyboard on my main comp desk. 6 in by maybe 18in. I decided it was time to improve work space and reorganized my fridge desk.

I've got a 42x24 desk that is so cluttered right now I have no room to work. So I've been using a 24x10 area in front of my monitor.

kind of can't on the account its attached to the trailer :D



That is a problem, however a problem not overcome by a big enough hammer. :D

No matter how big of a bench I have I still only end up with a 12X12 inch area to work in. And I have a lot of bench space - over 22sq feet.

It's too hot in Oklahoma to do anything outside this weekend. I'm putting the finishing touches on the 1969 Barracuda notchback coupe and I'm stripping the paint from an MPC 1975 Pontiac Firebird Formula. I'll probably resume work on the 1967 Camaro annual once the Barracuda is off the bench.
