Office/model room

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.

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

Desk view

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.

Cleared bench

Posted on Updated on

So the bench is cleared for the next kit to be started. Before I do i’ll be completing the MP4/4 1/20 body work that I never got round to completing. Once this is done I was going to get on and finish the F2002 as it’s been at the forefront of my mind for some time. However, i’m still in limbo over the drive and steering system at the front end so will be getting on and finishing the Lotus 79 from 78′ that I started a while back. Onwards and upwards to the next model journey. Please keep watching and i’ve also decided to get some videos done. I’ve had a few emails relating to this so that’s something i’ll be adding to my you tube channel that i’ve never used and on here.

Model room 90% complete 

Posted on

My office is almost complete. Just need to hook up my monitor and do a few bits here and there and it’s fully functioning. Getting all giddy. Once the Mp4/2 is complete I was going to finish off the F2002 but i’ve had second thoughts between that and the Lotus 1/20 79. Not sure as yet but have a week to think about it. The Mp4/2 should be done by sunday evening. I’ll post on 365 and f1m.

       So off the back of the move and a long time setting up the room to work in i’ve managed it. Just need to put my monitor up and my spray booth which i’m collecting later on and i’ll be able to get back to my builds as of this evening. Been a long time out of this game and really lookig forward to it.  

       What to start back with is going to be hard. I’m not really one for starting something and not finishing it and i have a few on the bench. I started the Mp4/2 so will probably get back to that and the f2002. I still have some parts to get hold of for this (f2002) so need to send some emails. I’ll be dedinately updating with pics later so watch this space. 

Happy modelling 

       I ripped out my old room and luckily the spare room in my new place was decked out similar to my old one. So basically this has worked out really well. Just need to fit the spray booth and im ready to go. Really looking forward to getting on with some work. 

      All ready to go. Off to get the stand from the old house to put the spray booth on and we’re ready to go. Very excited indeed. Tonight i’ll be back on with the MP4/2 1/20 and update the appropriate thread/WIP. See you then…..

The big move

Posted on

Recently I’ve not had the chance to do much other than live look after my daughter and my day job. Getting the opportunity to do anything modelling related has been impossible till now. My hearts not been into anything F1 wise but have been looking through some forum stuff and seeing some of the amazing work being done on FB has inspired me to get on and finish some kits. So tomorrow I’ll be bringing the last of my stuff to my flat and making a space to do my work. So bare with me and I’ll update as soon as I can.
