Friends, the shop here is the shop of a fellow club member, Kevin. Bear in mind when viewing the photos that his shop encompasses his ENTIRE basement of his home. He builds all kinds of models....cars, trains, planes, figures, armor....and it's ALL very good!

There are 29 photos in my Fotki album here...

Looks like he's been living in the man cave a long tine!

Just curious, what's the pipe that runs along the front edge of his bench for?

Actually, this takes a little pressure off me trying to convince my wife that I don't have too much at all.

Very impressive.

Looks kind of like a hobby shop blew up... It's nice and all in the classical, excessive American way, but I sure wouldn't want my kids to have to deal with something like that after I've kicked the bucket.

Now that's impressive. I might organize things a bit differently, but the assortment is incredible.

Missed you at MassCar, Terry. Hopefully next year!

Only a modeler would hide an unsightly water softener behind a Kreigsmarine war ensign...

Impressive, but not necessarily in a positive way. Maybe Kevin likes shopping more than building?

I would hate to think how much money is sitting there, in tools and kits and parts. I have wanted to inventory my collections for some time now but mine will be a piece of cake compared to this!

No...Kevin builds... a LOT! And builds well too. He's won a few Best of Show awards in addition to many class awards! He's very eclectic in what he builds. Builds everything! He's building a 1/35 scale German Locomotive right now that is pretty awesome! And he made that train trestle that you see in the 5th row down, first pic on the left numbered 1002644, from scratch. He's just fortunate enough that he can spend a lot of time with his hobby!

And next year, the show will be on the 18th. There's your birthday present to yourself. :)

Hopefully, we'll see each other soon. I won't be at NNL this year- wedding to go to. Now with all the weddings out of the way, I can resume my normal show schedule, as Classic Plastic go nuptualed-out, too last September.
