Ok, late last night, Saturday, I decided to use the 34 Ford Truck as a parts car and drug out this 62 Catalina.
The body is sitting in a brake fluid bath to strip the paint.
Got a lot of work on the frame and undercarriage to do as well as the interior.Posted Image

I have a few projects on the workbench but have put them on hold to work on molding & casting. I've been taking pics and sorting things out in order to try and make a decent impression on all of you with CRAZY SCALE AUTO PARTS. I'm concentrating on bucket seatss and air fliters with a few other goodies thrown in. I'm getting there

Sorry, it's already sunday, but I post these pictures, because I'm very close to finish my '60 Impala Mild Custom... I must still make lake pipes and of course some finishing. But i think, I'm gettin' it ready today. This would be my second finished model in 2011.

A little late in posting my workbench...

Magnetic jig is beside the Future polish bin beside the Mopar/American Muscle books. Selection of model kits is paltry right now because of my budget, but counting the number of models I've already built (20+), it's not too bad. A good selection of spray paints are in the right-side drawers along with my spare parts bin, and the underdesk cabinet houses quite a bit of tools, glues, cotton swabs, rags, etc.

And I need to clean my spray booth, I know. :)

Wel1...it's at the end of a long weekend, close enough for a Saturday, at least in mindset.

One Revell 1956 Chevy Del Ray, after doing some paint touch-up.

The neighbors remodeled their kitchen and I was able to get some of their cabinets. That called for a total makeover of my hobby area. Now I even have the spraybooth in there with me. On the other side of the room is 16' of workbench for my stained glass - it also doubles as a staging area for my in progress kits and my molding/casting area.

Settling into new digs as far as my work area goes. Not getting much done, because I intentionally left enough room on the bench for the laptop...
Posted Image
But I did see a cool old Pinto wagon, AND a Scout II (the official Bigfoot hunting rig)...
Posted Image
Posted Image

I've managed to put up a tack board, to help utilize some of that wasted wall space and keep stuff off the bench and out of drawers-
Posted Image

And projects? Yeah, I've got a few of those...
Somehow I ended up with one of Dr. Cranky's unwanted projects, a '51 Chevy hardtop
Posted Image

A Turbine powered Beetle, which will probably become some kind of post Apocalyptic ride...
Posted Image

'32 Chrysler Truckster tub...
Posted Image

And the beginnings of a beater, rat rod... '95 Toyota Supra????

OK, I know it's Sunday but I haven't touch my workbench in several days.
Currently working on a Willy's.
Yeah I know, my workbench is rather simple, but it works for me.

I love the use of the pegboard guys, expecially to the side like that. Looks like its very handy.

These are some pics of my current setup. I've been through a few so far. Havent had it setup this way for long but so far so good and im not finished with it yet. And I plan on trying to enjoy it this way as much as possible cause in about a year or less i'll be moving and more then likely will have to downsize. Which is fine :D

Under the larger side of the table I have a drawer thats 3ft wide and 2ft deep that could support a build on its own or for some more storage. I plan on building another shelf next to the other one too (i think). But anyway here it is. And i'll include a couple pics of what models I have on it being worked on and whats waiting to be worked on. Thanks for looking and definately thanks to everyone for sharing.

And whats being worked on in the corner spot is the t bucket.

Posted Image

To the left of the bucket waiting attention is a 66 chevy nova pro street.
Posted Image

And to the right of the bucket is a 1935 Auburn Boattail Speedster.
Posted Image

Idea behind the boards is so that I can pick them up and take what I may need to work on and sit on the couch or outside or something if I want and build. Or I can just move them out of the way for something else etc...

Thanks

Looks like you have a pretty good setup going.
Oh, and I like the color combo on the Pontiac's interior!
