Dear all

We all have a workspace into which we retreat to create our models so lets share views of our workshops.

I will post my photos later.

Paul. Great idea. Once I tidy up and strategically place a few choice models on the bench, remove any non-politically correct or sexist calendars , get the wife to hoover up the wood shavings and add a few MB magazines on the side, I will take a picture.   Ash.

Good morning Ashley and Neil

Just like you I decided to spring clean the workshop before I took any photos and it was a good excuse to have a proper clear out so I spent most of the day on it, I polished the bench mounted power tools and sprayed them with WD40, hovered the dead files out of the strip lights and even cleaned the windows. Santa’s workshop could not have glittered any brighter.

I got the camera set up for the ultimate photo that included the bench, most of the bigger tools and the current model.

Then I tripped over my own feet, caught the tripod and the camera came crashing down onto the concrete floor....you would not believe how many small bits there are in a camera.

So the camera has been boxed up and sent back to cannon for repair and I feel such a fool by posting this thread and then being unable to put my photos in it.....

I got the idea from the Military Modelling site and some of their workspaces are very well kitted out there is even a view into Vinnies inner sanctum.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
