anybody notice no matter how big or small the bench, no matter how many shelves or stacks of kits, no matter how big or small the room, everybody works in a 12" x 12" space?

OK folks, a couple weeks ago I showed my model room under construction. We had heavy rains during the summer and I got flooded in the basement. Had to gut and redo the model room and two bedrooms. Well today to start the new year off right, I'm proud to say its finished and just about organized to start letting the styrene fly once again!!! Man I excited and can't wait. Let the building begin!

I love you have a racing setup in the corner, makes waiting for stuff to dry so much more fun...

Yea, that's my other addiction. I'm on there about three nights out of the week. Its cool cause I've been able to meet folks from all over the country and we can talk to one another while racing. Its like everyone is one the same radio frequency. I even got to race with a fella in Australia. Its a blast!

It's Saturday afternoon here in Okinawa, so I thought I'd post up what my bench looks like after a whole day of scratchbuilding parts for my Nissan SR20 Motor :D
