well i decided just a hour ago i am calling this one "finished" .. i was sitting at the table with the dio and thought . at this point its just trying to get idea's ..
i'm sure in the future i will add small things ..same i do on car builds .... but for me at this point its done

i think the real endpics on location will be made in the beginning of the summer but since the weather is soo mild here in holland atm i might do some winter pics ....

anyway thnx to everybody for the great replyes and enthousiasm !!!

Hahah no I did not win anything, like usual... I'm more like a sponsor  :wacko:

Soon I will start with the dio for the monster trucks, something totally different but lets see what happen.

i won 40€ so i had 10€ profit .. thinking about what to do buy a new ticket or ..... and yes i'm very curious on that dio .. some wrecks in a line up maybe ?? or are you only going to do a hill(s)

maybe on marktplaats you can find a few supercheap cars to use as wrecks ?

 

i maybe have a vintage corvette kit for you .. i have like 3 of those .. if you want to use it for the monster truck .......you can have one

Cool that you won, you have at least your own money back  :lol:

 

Im not sure yet, i searched the internet on cheap diecasts but they are very hard to find. I dont want to spend 50 euro on few cars that I'm gonna smash.
Thanks for the Vette but I dont want to use corvette to smash, doesn't feel right hahaha

 

Do you have holiday rest of the week or do you have to work?

well can also becheap plastic model kits right ? what about a bmw c35i ?? to modern ??
and well i was sceduled to work tomorrow ...but the work was pretty slow and in the end i could take thursday off so tomorrow i'm not working .. then i would call about friday .. i think friday will be a workday usually pretty busy on fridays .. i hope i can take a nother day off :)


btw this evening i have slapped together a workspace in the livingroom , i bought a old style secretaire desk a while ago and painted it white and weathered the paint so it looks worn .. put my pc in there with a really really big screen .. i swapped to a smaller screen .. (looking at that now and need to get used to a smaller screen lol)
i hung the lcd on a backplate and i made like small shelfs beside the screen , where my paints and glues and tools are in ...
this way i dont need to get everything out of the closet .. and everything is in reach .. the nice part is there is a rolling shutter (rollend luik) and when i'm done i can leave what ever i'm building and just close it ..

untill now i just build on the dining table .... worked fine

btw the great parts is i have my lcd screen in front of me .. so i can look things up and when i buiold see it in front of me ..
also i can sit and build and watch tv online with kpn online :) hahahaha

i could have made a modest small but nice modelroom upstairs (still redoing the rooms) but i had to choose > small room for my son and a modelroom for me ..
or a big room for my son and no modelroom for me ..

off course i choose the big room for my son , diodnt have to because it was my idea lol but he also needs his own space growing up ..

i also had a option of a fairly big workspace upstairs in a big corner beside the staircase (op de overloop die heel groot is).
but in the end .. i have been building in the living room for 2 years now and i must say that is the best spot .. we all are tehre as a family , wife watches tv , son on his tablet and i'm building .. but we are still together and interact ..
i build a lot and long hours in the weekends .. that would mean i'm upstairs alot and thats not .....

i also have a nice shed , smae issue never in the house and in winter time its too cold there :)

but i'm real happy with my new space now

Morning, cool that you got your own workspace!
Much better to have it in the livingroom, nice to be with the familiy.

My space is on third floor and thats not cool when the family is at home.
I got a small shed but it filled with other hobbys and too cold indeed ;-)

Good that you used the space for your sons room, I would have done the same.

Got to go, going to (Pathe) cinema, to the movie Frozen with the familiy.
Are you at home this afternoon?
