Here are some pics of the two builds I am working on:

The skyraider is a Trumpeter kit and the Phamtom is Tamiya with speed hunter Graphics decals.

A break on power rates makes private business persons like me take adantage.

Here is a crib board routed from a maple burl slice. I can prolly do my years worth of these during lockdown.

So close to paint.  Still have a few things to add and clean then we can get the fuselage painted.

Stunning build Bill

Exactly, like Phil says a Jawdropper. It would be great if you'd comment on your rigging, when time comes. I have a FE.2b waiting to be built and like to see how you tackle yours.

Cheers Rob

While I finish up the fiddly bits on the A-4C I thought I would start this. Really one of the simplest fun builds

Continuing  with my  vf111 sundowners F14 buno 160920 (1:48 tamiya)  I’m seeking your opinion: my decals sheets call out for colors FS 36375 at the bottom, 35237 for the top and 36320 for some other parts. Should I follow that scheme or should I use FS16440 on top and the rest in white as suggested by Home of MATS?

Dauntless? Looks good whatever it is. I could use some of those gremlins.

Indeed! I built one way back, but it was destroyed by a 1/1 scale cat right after a move.  Such a fun kit!

Progress in the paint department.   Still needs gear work, belly paint in areas, and some touch ups.  Then decals, weathering and she is all done.   Thinking another week or so.

What’s on my bench? The fleet of P-40's pissed me off last night, after another round of checks, I found shrinking filler and divots all over the seam lines, all of them. So I did what any mentally ill person does, I filled all the divots again. Then I put them away and started a new project.

I can promise one thing you don't need is filler for that one Mark!

Not by a long shot. My bench "area" pretty much looks like that.  I'm in the middle of trying to make room on my bench for my boys but I'm failing miserably.

Anything not on a shelf is technically a work in progress. I don't even know what everything is. So I'm definitely not as organized as CAT is. 

My plan for the new year is to try and get through at least one pile of started kits...

Carl,  my friend, this is truly, truly epic.  I’m most impressed. Where do you sit? Is there a path for ingress/egress? Possibly a trap door in the roof?   However you do it, it demonstrated unique skill, ability, determination, and athleticism...

Now just don’t look at my bench  it wants to be yours when it grows up.

Rookie error...

Applied too much pressure and broke the support under the front seat of the Z/M Nick while sanding one of the side sprue gate attachments.

Was rushing to make some progress last night while tired, and I really didn't need to.

Tamiya Merlin! Always a good choice. Just can't tell if it's for their Mustang or Spitfire kit as the supercharger isn't on yet.

I've been fighting that desire for the last week.  I really want to get my Spitfire done. Must resist....

Thanks Ernie! My bench is much improved from an organizational standpoint. In fact, so is the area around it. My boys have room on the bench now for them to build their kits which means I don't have to clear room for them every time they come down. Although they're learning to leave kit sprues everywhere. Not a good thing.

Getting into my seat wasn't bad. The route was pretty clear. Unless the dog followed me down and brought the cat with her. Then it's fun trying to get the instructions out from under him. Or one of my tools.

I much prefer when they're in their allocated spots:

I have figured it out!

 

you have a perfectly usable bench space on the left (outlined in red) for build projects, and on the right a space for either coffee or adult beverage (depending on time of day). Then you start by kicking the stuff on the floor away and access the chair (green arrow), pull out enough to squeeze in, and there you go...

That sounds about right. :thumbsup2:

Except for the coffee bit as I don't drink the stuff. Too bitter. :D

Not technically on my bench, but on my back porch, this is my first so far successful year (so far) of a raised bed garden. I could not plant in the ground because my dog is a digger and there are rabbits everywhere that even come onto our back porch, so it had to be elevated. We use a little indoor hydroponic grower to get the tomato plants to about 6” tall, then move them outside. I have a third set of plants ready to move to the garden, so far I have been getting things figured out, just hope they survive the frost this morning.

Not you're normal sort of bench but I'm making 4 more Narrow Gauge wagon kits to go with the completed one for my Garden railway Steam locos, Scale is [ SM32 which is 16mm to 1 foot, so 2ft gauge on 32mm wide track 1:19 Scale]

I'm doing this in between casting David Brown RAF Tractor kits behind me, I also suffer from not enough bench space, I've always got a PC and other computer stuff on my bench like a 3D Scanner which doubles up as a shelf as its used only occasionally and is right PIA to unplug and set up, which I'm going to sort out soon after this lot is out of the way.
