So I’m in the final stretches of the office build. I’ve started building the or rather constructing the spray booth, here are some images of where I got up to since my previous update.
I’m currently at the stage of constructing the fan base and the exhaust system from the rear end of the booth. I have a few more ideas for this including a slide in filter system which can be removed at any stage to replace the filter sheets. It’s taking a bit of time but should be completed this week. There is so much left to do including all the electrics. The spray booth daylight strip is in place and ready for power. I will update again over the weekend and there should be more to see. Once this is done I have a 20” monitor to be added above or to the right of the booth. Then it’s time to sand down and fill in. Once this is completed it’s time for paint then the carpet fitters are in to complete the interior. Can’t wait. It’s been a long hard trek but the end is near and I can get back to my builds.
So the last few weeks I’ve been building the office area for model builds. There’s still quite a lot to do. Carpeting, paint shelves, spray booth and some other bits and bobs and paint the surfaces. So below is where I have got too. Think I have two weeks to go on this and it should be finished. I have ordered some wood and decking to finish off the outside perimeter too. Pics to follow on that one once complete.
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.
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.
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.
