So why aren't you building models I hear you say. We want to see that Me410 finished! Well, so do I. But for any project you need tools. And what is our biggest tool? Well our cave ofcourse. Be it the kitchen table, cupboard umder the stairs, the attic or a full scale garage; we all have one. Last year i moved to my current house and I'm in the lucky position to have a pretty decent space for myself in the attic. But nothing had changed since the late 80's early 90's in this room.

And thus I started my latest large scale project, rebuilding the cave! 

 

Be aware, photobomb incoming:

 

Before, as advertised in the estate agent brochure. Looks decent right? Well to be honest, it was a lot less stellar then this picture shows. Awful yellow wallpaper, a rotting window, linoleum floor... in three layers and the door was beyond saving, being used for darting.

very nice.  i must comment on the panel lines on the flooring...seems a bit too much...

 

a big project, great effort.

 

Do you mean the edges or the panel lines overall? The edges will be covered with some baseboard/skirting board. The panel lines overall are pretty normal here in the Netherlands. Different countries, different tastes :).

oh Wouter.  Panel lines as in models.  there's been much debate lately on "over doing" panel lines on a/c. 

 

your floor work is exemplary.
