Finally got everything in the shop except the final version of my spray booth. Had everything but the lathe, but they were scattered all over the place at my home, garage and at my gun shop. Got them assembled together in one place today, and added the lathe today as well. It is NICE having tools to make "stuff" when you need it. The completion of the spray booth is next! And of course TRYING to complete a build or two at the same time! One step at a time!

One of my fav topics. I really dig seeing how others get it done and in what kind of environment. 

This is my mess.

I cleared a few square inches of work bench and managed to finish a hot rod Porsche RSR and I got some work done on my Cannonball entry's 6BT diesel.

My disaster area, looking forward to cold weather (ONLY for the sake of building) to get back the bench.

I seriously need to clean my model room!  I keep saying I'll do it as soon as I finish my current project, but I start another one!  

Here's an article I wrote eons ago about this subject:

http://www.carsandracingstuff.com/library/articles/0090.php

If you click on my name in the article, it will take you to an index of 18 of my old "The Model Citizen" columns.  I'm honored that this site collected them and has preserved them here!

Do I see a couple of Futureliners there? What are your plans for those?

Yes those are futureliners! One probably a replica of one of the originals, one may go custom and gray. The flatbed... custom... something.

Got this new chair last Saturday for my model bench. Tired of the bar chair set up, noticed where many of you had desks and chairs. 

So I lowered the bench to desk height. Way comfy now...got clearanced chair for $45.
