What is on your bench right now ? Share a picture :)


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if it is only me or if there are more of us who are simply jumping from project to project and the constellation of plastic bits on there work bench is changing dramatically from week to week?

Well here is a place for you to post the actual "status quo".  At the moment, don't forget , tomorrow is a new day and there is no need to explain or justify. As long as you are having fun, share it !

Cheers

Martin

Okay, here's my bench as it sits currently.  The dust is from the 1/4 Fokker D.VII I am currently building on it.

Almost finished, only the engine cowling and the coolant pipe from the engine up to the wing radiator are still missing. I hardly dare to write - the Albatros was started to be built sometime in 200

On my bench only? Or does scattered all around it count as well? 

If the former, then I have the following:

- Dragon 1/32 Bf110

- Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire IX

- HK B-25 x2

Scattered around the bench and being picked at and worked on randomly are:

- Takom Leopard 1 C2

- Bronco M24 Chafee 

- Italeri LCM

- Tamiya 1/12 MP4/6

- Tamiya 1/32 F-16C 

- Hasegawa 1/32 FW-190 A8

- Aoshima Toyota Celica WRC

Plus there's the kits my two sons are dragging onto my bench to work on.

So to sum up, my work bench is a bit... cluttered :lol:

Hey Mark, are you going to do the dolphin nosed version with the rear ramp?  I love that version of the Mi-17. The RCAF had a few of that they deployed in Afghanistan. They looked pretty cool in desert sand with low viz markings.

I have gotten frustrated  with the crappy fit of the P-40's, which is odd among so many other Hasegawa with excellent fit. I am coming to a break in the B-24, waiting for the airscale panel and a few other bits. This is also the point in the build where you start assembling and detailing all the tedious little parts like oxygen bottles, bombs, radios, etc.
