Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder. 

Sir Desmond Glazebrook

I am solving my storage dilemma "Yippee!"

Recommended Posts

Being a bit slow, it took me a while to work out how I could store my ever growing modelling tools and paints, pencils etc.

Time passed and I wondered "How???"

More time......

The opening credits of Days of our lives....

....

"Eureka!!!"

Perfect solution Dale, Just last two days I spent organizing my room and ended up with a whole bunch of miscellanies nick-nicks that are currently homeless laying on the ground. :)

It is rough when it gets like that. Plus it is easy to mis-place things when they have no home. I should have bought 2 big boxes instead of the orange ones. I may get another anyway. It is nice to have a safe drawer for my airbrushes.

I have sorted my WWII Japanese and Luftwaffe and my WWII to modern Russian colours. I need to do the US & RAF colours next. At first I wanted paint racks used to display colours in shops but they are ridiculously expensive. Now everything is portable. 

I am as happy as a puppy standing next to a bowl of ice cream. Look! -> :D

Wow, Dale, this is exactly what I'm looking at, I found one of those tool boxes for 200 bucks, and thought, yup that's what I need....... it's good to see it in 'action'.............

Very nice, Dale! If I may offer one suggestion - take a Sharpie marker and write the paint number ( ie "XF-64") on the bottle tops.

Years ago they were changing out the crash carts at the hospital my wife worked at.  She snagged me one. It's basically a tool box, but it has 4 turning casters instead of two fixed and two turning.  Also has a "bumper" around the bottom to keep it from hitting the walls.

It only has three drawers and a large open space on the bottom.  Drawer height on one is perfect for the standard Tamiya paint bottles. I used utensil divider boxes for individual color spectrum's.  One is tools, tape, etc. One is larger Junk.  I just need to reorganize my mess now.

Thanks guys. I plan to write on bottle tops. At the moment only Russian, German and Japanese are in sections in the orange boxes. I have more Japanese than any otheotherwiser paint. I really like Japanese aeroplanes.

Nothing to show. I am completing a Tamiya Seiran float plane. After painting it I decided to strip it due to an unsatisfactory finish. So there is a really dirty float plane. 

Nobody wants to see that! :banned:

Here is the little spitfire. I am working on this at my drum studio. A boy, 9 years old, was given this for hos birthday. He had zero clue what to do with it. I asked if he'd like me to build it for him. He said Yes please!

Hopefully he will like it enough to try with another he has.

 

Here is another I built for my student, THE MACHINE!!! The machine has studied with me since he began, age 3.

Awesome mate. I like both! Is the 190 air brushed or brushed painted. Either way, it looks great. Now you need to get the machine to try building himself.  Thanks for the pics Dale.......harv

Hey Harv.

Airbrushed. I built it over a couple of days as an Easter present. I gave The Machine a Tamiya Su-27 + some paints and glues. He enjoys Leggo models. We shall see if he builds the kit.

The little Spitfire has it's wings on. :thumbsup2:
