    Mine is admittedly a mess at the moment. I have been spending a lot of time building in here lately, probably could use a tune-up this weekend! Sorry about the washout on the bench!

      Hey Zack, is that a picture (on the right wall) of you driving at a slalom event?

    I have 3 work areas in my shop. One for slot cars, one for making LED light kits and one for general woodworking and other stuff. Like a lot of other workbenches, it's a bit of a mess at the moment, but I know where everything is.

    The small blue tote on the left is temporary storage for all my "yet to be built" routed track parts - driver stations, wiring, electronic bits, etc. The coiled up Luf's Routing Guide strip is just behind it.

    Cabinetry is all laboratory grade metal with man made "granite" counter tops that weigh about 40 lbs per square foot. I scored these from a lab remodel at a former place of employment.

            Drawers are built from scratch, they hold my tools. Actually all the furniture you see is built from scratch.

            What is wrong with you? That bench is far too clean, and the workspace too orderly. Where are all the paint spills and damage to your cutting mat. No errant drill holes or anything. LOL, my work space looks like that twice a year. The rest of the time , my wife is just glad there is a door to close on the mess.

              Zack, I will have more time to work on some of those kits in about a year. I plan on Retiring.

                Here's mine. Curiously clean for the moment. Major points to the first person that guesses the car on the tuning board.

                  Looks like a Coyote except for the deck lid edge.

                  Great collection of Tamiya kits in that closet! Your display shelves look great too.

                  I think it was what the Coyote was derived from. It was a certain race car driver's street car.

                Thats a great looking space! Can't quite make out the car on the bench....looks like a lot of things, but not "quite".

                  Zack, That a nice work shop. You have a few kits there. Is that Lola T70?
