I'm redecorating my den/hobby room as it's been over ten years since I did it last. I'll be slingin' the paint brush and roller tomorrow morning.

My question for those folks that have open display cases: how do you deal with dust? In my last setup, I had an open case and everything got pretty dusty. My current arrangement has a closed case and I don't have to worry about the dust. I'm in the process of moving and the closed case I have now won't be coming with me (it is built in to a wall) and all I have at the moment is open cases.

Very nice cave. I like the large scale for decoration and the model boxes on display is sweet

I keep my models in  old china cabinets. I have two right now, one I got free, the second one from a used furniture shop for $100.

Mine isn't this neat anymore... Lots of stuff piled up in the walk way now. It's tight quarters to work here but it's something...

Here's my corner of the house, years of searching yard sales, swap meets, flea markets,and yard sales, plus the help of a great wife. Not much happening here lately , Lost my job of 29 years, to work force reduction. I sit at the bench but nothing happens, hope this doesn't last too much longer.

Just a few quick shots from the basement:

12023265926_1374b51843_c.jpg

The last shot shows my recently-acquired SMP '62 Chevy convertible. It took an evening's work with photoetch saws, a razor saw, regular and chisel X-acto blades, and a small screwdriver, but I got that windshield out intact without any new damage. Then I fixed the broken right windshield post, replaced the missing vent pillar with a piece of square rod (cut from a fan belt!) and ground down and polished out the windshield to remove the glue splotches. On the right is a '62 Continental convertible that may end up getting parted if I can't budge any more black paint off.

So here's something that has gotten me excited. Moving over the next couple of weeks, and I get a big bump up in my hobby room. I go from this:

An update to my pictures I posted above. All moved in now and have everything just about all squirreled away. The downsides I have discovered are that there are only two outlets in the hobby room, and there is no built-in heat; the heater you can see above is not wired in. The electric fireplace is my only source of heat in the whole basement! I have a heat-blocking curtain hung between the two rooms to heat the hobby room easier. The cord hanging above my desk is for a 3 ft power bar that supplies outlets for my computer, lamps, modems for phone and internet, etc. Sure is nice to have some room to stretch now! :D
