Office Update September 2020

Posted on

Over the last few days I have been constructing the model making side of my building, so far the above has been completed. There is a lot more to do. The paint racks and the spray booth. The area under the right hand wall mounted parts trays is for my lathe and mill. I have been making sure that my kits can fit in the Obove sections and in the cupboards below. I need to make some doors and finish off with paint but will wait till it’s all constructed. I recon within the next 4 weeks it should be completed and ready for use. I won’t be able to fit all my model collection in the office as it’s way too vast so will have to use the attic for space. I will update again later on next week.

Office update Post Covid lockdown

Posted on Updated on

Since my last update in April this is where the office stands in terms of completion. It’s taken a long time to get the doors delivered and I’ve finally put them in. All the electrics have been put down and hooked up to the main consumer unit in the house. Walls are up nearly and sockets added. Once this weekend is out of the way I’ll be able to start constructing the work surfaces and making the cupboards and shelves. My next update should be in the next week or so. The book is on hold for the moment due to work commitments and the build. The general outline and contents are there they just need to be published. So hopefully this will happen over the next few months. Once the office is completed I’ll have more space and time to drive it. Images to follow on the interior update.

Above is a little preview taster for those who are interested in seeing what the book layout will look like. All the pages are complete however choosing the images and putting them in the correct place is proving difficult. I’m trying very hard to make this as bespoke and as simple as possible and not using any other references for influence. Please let me know what you think so far i’d love some feedback via email.

FW14B Ebook & Softback

Due to the Corona Virus and the ongoing lock ins we are having across the world and not being able to build my office I decided it was about time I got on with publishing my Ebook and soft back editions. The 1st edition of the Fw14b 92 championship winning car should be up for sale online or from me directly from June 2020. It’s been a long time in coming but not having a great deal to do other than watch boring TV and the same films over and over again I thought I’d put my heart and sole into this. Please contact me via email should you wish any further info.

I have still to work out the costs of the soft back and ebooks, however they will not be as much as the Joe Honda books. They will be reasonably priced. I may also, as its a 1st edition put an accompanying DVD in the back of the book with all the 600 plus images that won’t all feature in the book.

Big Office Build…..

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been away for a long time but things have taken a turn for the better. Without wanting to go into too much detail I had a very traumatic latter stages to 2019 and found it very difficult to get into anything least of all my builds. Life has been tough of late but I find that jumping into my work and involving my mind with f1 and my kits has given me a new lease in life. My mind has been so pre occupied in work and family that I’ve neglected the things I truly love doing. I have spent some time researching and gathering materials for a huge external office build and want to share this with you all. There has been a lot of weather issues in the uk of late so things have been a bit hard to start. However, things are looking up the weather is calming down so I should be able to start what I intend to be an exciting build. So buckle up and I hope you enjoy what I have in store for you all. I hope I can also inspire you all to make an amazing space to enjoy your hobbies, be it model building or arts and crafts After the weekend I plan to start my foundations so watch this space. I shall update with videos and pics of what I’m up to.

Back at the Mp4/6 1/20

This is me back to the modelling. Not done a great deal tonight but as per my WIP on the MP4/6 1/20 I have been doing a bit of juggling between my daughter and the front suspension. I have a full day tomorrow to get really into the swing of it so there should be some updates daily from now on.

New Year, back to the bench and the website

Posted on Updated on

Hi everyone, I’ve been sat here now for two days doing a lot of thinking and doing stuff around my work room, my bench and my website and finally I have the buzz back to get on with my builds. This last few years has been tough. I have been having issues getting my head back into my builds, I get to the point where I sit down start doing some work and another thing gets in the way. Work, family and other priorities are constantly making it hard to spend time doing what I love doing best. So here goes, it’s time to get stuck in and finish off the F2002 1/12 Revell and the 1/20 mp4/6 Tamiya.

Everything is in place so hopefully this time I won’t be disappearing.

Tomorrow night i’ll get back to the mp4/6 and upload in my WIP. I’m forcing myself to get this kit done by the end of April 2019. The F2002, well that’s another story. I have things to get on with but really need to get the electronics and steering system sorted out.
