Hello Model car mag forum!

 

Not to much to say, from the Bay Area, Go A's!

 

Been modeling since I was about 10, but was never in a place long enough to really get settled. So I still consider myself a rookie.

 

Now that I am old enough to focus on the 50+ Kits I have in storage, the wife thinks the smell will bother the kids.. so my current plans are to build a cheap portable station to put in my outside storage unit.

 

Im sure it will be nice following your builds,

 

Cheers,

I built in the house all through the years when my kids were growing up.  I worked in an upstairs bedroom.  I built myself a little spray booth with a small fan and a hose that I'd toss out a window.  I had a corner room so there were windows on two walls.  So most of the time I worked there I'd just keep the other window open a bit to allow the fan to work with cross ventilation.  So I'd bring in clean air, and all the smells would go out with the fan.  Just a thought for ya,  welcome to the board.

Greetings, put the kids out side in the fresh air while you build inside. Keep your priority's straight. :D Or get them building, then they can beg mom to let you all build in the house.

First off, thanks for the welcome party. Yes, it does seem to be one if not the best forums out there.

 

 

I built in the house all through the years when my kids were growing up.  I worked in an upstairs bedroom.  I built myself a little spray booth with a small fan and a hose that I'd toss out a window.  I had a corner room so there were windows on two walls.  So most of the time I worked there I'd just keep the other window open a bit to allow the fan to work with cross ventilation.  So I'd bring in clean air, and all the smells would go out with the fan.  Just a thought for ya,  welcome to the board.

 

Tom, I am actually in an apartment right now. Not the ideal spot but I actually Manage this small property so the owner requires I live here. The previous places were always owned by soeone else.. I was renting rooms etc. 

 

Greetings, put the kids out side in the fresh air while you build inside. Keep your priority's straight. :D Or get them building, then they can beg mom to let you all build in the house.

Laz you are very correct, I didnt want to get to specific but the "kids" are not actually mine.. they are my sisters kids. I watch them in transition from school to when parents get home. Since I work from home its convenient. So they typically only spend a few hours here. And the boy is too young to be left alone while I build. 

 

All will be well tho! I am converting what is a outdoor storage space into my build station. I took some quick photos tonight and I will post up later. Its not going to be fancy, because if I dont plan on being here longer than a year more.

 

Again, thank you all see ya around!

Welcome to the forum.  I am just a little bit south of you in San Jose.  Is the Hobbytown in Fremont still open?

Too bad it closed.  It was one of the best Hobbytowns I have been to.  This is the fourth Hobbytown that closed in the south bay in the last 15 years.  Last fall a new Hobbytown opened up in Sunnyvale.  It is small but well stocked with model car kits and the staff is very friendly.  Hopefully they can make it.
