Hobby Area - Limited Space
Posted by zsoderquist on Sunday, February 11, 2018 12:39 AM

I just got into the hobby at the end of last year. Since then I've been setting up my hobby area in a very limited space. 

This is my setup so far.

What ways do you maximize your space for working on models?

WOW! I wish I had that much space! Looks pretty well organized to me . As you work you will recognize changes you want to make.  It will get better and better.

Looks good, but I don't see any models.

I'm currently working on my second model. It is in the drying box in the corner, have to look closely.

For a "limited space you're doing pretty good, as I remember working off a TV tray, a kitchen or dining room table, and even spray painting over some newspapers on the bed.

With no wife and no life. I get the benefit of deciding what to do with the space and my money. I'm also kind of an all in kind of person when it comes to new hobbies.

I stand corrected. Welcome to the Hobby. If you're looking to make show quality models or just a weekend project you can find all kinds of tips on this forum. Have fun building and post some pics when you're done.

Looks like you're off to a good start.  To answer your question, in my opinion the best way to maximze space is drawers.  I love drawers.  A place for everything, and everything in its place.  I can't stand my horizontal spaces cluttered with piles.  

I too am working on my space for building and "the wave of the future is....drawers".Smile   That was a very loose reference from The Graduate.  ("Plastics son, plastics.")  

Just keep picking away at it...
