This is my workbench, complete with background "wooded" scenery, and optional dining placement and wine opener (this is sonoma county afterall). I have many favorite tools and items. But first and foremost, i really love my liquid plastic adhesive. But I think I love more than any, the plastic clamps I ordered from micro-mark...they have holes in them that make them great to hang in my paint booth while holding tight my painting subjects...and although CA glue and I have had our disagreements...I'm kinda thinkin it has it's place as well.
I built models up until I was about 15 or 16. I haven't built any until May, 2011 at which I have been working consistantly. That means i've had a 20+ years window of not touching a model...for now, each model I build has some sentimental value...and each has me doing something I have never done before.
