Hi everyone,

I would like to see other members workshop/area/bench. The place where all your "magic" happens.

I couldn't really post it anywhere else as this covers a lot of stuff not just cars, but 1:32 cars are the most general scale of cars as far a I know so it will probably get most exposure and therefore good references here.

I think it will be quite interesting to see what tools etc we all use to service, upgrade, paint and modify our little cars.

Seeing that I'm the one asking for this it's only fair that I post my setup as well:

I use my area mostly for chipping, tuning and adding lights as I have not moved over to modifications and re-livery's yet. Neither have I really gone into modifying trackpieces.
I recently bought the "magnifying bench light" and it works a charm. Also have a OKI fume extraction system on it's away as there is too little ventilation in this room and I don't react too well to solder smoke.



IKEA computer table is my main working area.



My pride and joy.


Lets get the ball rolling....

That is one mean setup! Holy
and with THAT track next to it!

I see we also share the same tyre truer...I just have my laptop on a laptop table that I move around the house and when I'm working on my cars I plug it into my screen for some surfing, entertainment and re-programming of digital chips....

Thanks for sharing!

@Embs: So in theory you suggesting that my bench is tidy then???


@John: I like that your workbench has a nice "cut" into it so you're nearly surrounded by all your stuff. BTW is that Pratt & Whitney Radial engine on your bookstand? Wish I had that kind of space! Lovely track and scenery as well!


So far Glue Guns and Dremels seems to be the common dominator.

I'm loving it. JCS100 in my opinion, there is no such thing as a untidy or bomb hit work area.
Most of these, to me, looks like seriously experienced slotter's work area...that clearly excludes mine...if those benches could only but speak....

That Porsche BTW looks the business.

@Shane: That is a incredible set-up you have there.

@Martin: I can vouch for Proxxon tools as well. For me they are a bit more accurate than the Dremel's.

@Abie: Hey, welcome to the "study" club
....I'm in awe of some of the stuff I've seen so far....very impressive. One day when we are "big" we'll have nice setups as well.

@Cam, that is MIGHTY impressive. Reminds me of a F1 garage...near sterile


If I only had 2 meters worth of that workbench it would be great!

@Kennee What one earth do you cut with those MASSIVE scissors?

I really like your "running in" rig! That is really quite cool...no pun intended.
