Hi Kendo,

I don't have a garage anymore.

It has become my games and painting room.

The games board is at bench height to ease my aging back. (1830mm by 1230mm)
The board is painted blue for Napoleonic naval games (Now pirate games)and on the other side is painted blackish with specs for space ship games using Full Thrust rules.

Image

I cover it with a sheet and put terrain tiles on it for land based games.

To raise the games table, the board sits on a frame which provides storage area for miniature cases, rules and dead miniatures.
Image

This is my work bench.
Image

This is my kids work bench. The plastic toy lathe cuts and shape Balsa wood. The kids tool set has had all the tools sharpened and they use it under supervision.

cheers

This is my painting desk

Here is a spare painting desk. (My first painting desk when I was a child)

Wow...people often say I don't live in a house I live in a workshop...but yours looks great...and cars should learn to ;ive on the street wher they belong..thay naval board looks the biz..I am thought both fortunate and unfortunate by sum as I live on my own, sharing space with a cat...which can have problems all of its own..

As you can see that is a portion of one wall in my garage,
here is another wall......

That is my hoard see why my gaming friends want me to build an army?
Several of my model building friends say that when the "better" half of the family complains about the "overspending" on models.........they just pull up the pic's of my wall, and that ends the argument. ......lol

Alright so I am slightly envious of the fact that your range of products is way better than my local hobby stores. Anyway have had to take a minimalist approach with no garage and sharing the house with 3 significant others. The table folds up and the paints and tools stored in tool boxes.

Hope the image works never tried this image shack techno thingy before.[img][url=http://img233.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1006756yh3.jpg][img]=http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/8018 ... yh3.th.jpg][/img]

Rommel's Rod was a fantasy halftrack/hot rod designed by Tom Daniels back in the 70's.
Unfortunately I cannot take any more pic's of it at this time........
I'm packing for a move across the country(west coast to the east coast).
after I settle in I can take more pic's of it for you.
I am talking with Tom now about the rights to do it in 1/72.
BTW who is "Pod"?,
I'm Ken
