The Man Cave gets an upgrade. The carpet monster is seriously injured when the water heater broke and flooded the room. Replaced carpet monster with wood flooring.

How long did you spend cleaning it up before the photo Robbie?

That's a nice and roomy place for our hobby. What's that thing right from the laptop that looks like an overhead projector?

It took a month and a half to get it where it is at now. @ice that is the Tamiya workbench I have on a folding table. I sometimes take it into the living room to do a little modeling while watching TV. Comes in handy when I am assembling tracks one link at a time
Now if I could just finish a model...

very nice room. nice idea to change carpet for wooden floor
... but the carpet monster is still there, be sure some small PE/small parts will disappear even without a carpet

Robbie, we will all be keeping a close eye on the background in your project pics to see if it stays looking like that!!

As they say... the sign of a clean desk is the sign of a sick mind! LOL

Thanks for allowing me to indulge and show off. I just got it all back together last week so I have not had a chance to mess it up. I even put back the ongoing projects that were being worked on when the water heater blew/leaked last November (Thanksgiving Holiday). I am just enjoying it for the moment. I just sit in there, take a few puffs of my cigar and enjoy a ice cold IPA and wonder how the hell am I going to finish all these kits !

One at a time.....
Or maybe two.....
Or as you please
15. January 2018 at 16:32:36
Don't worry about finishing stash..... I doubt me at of us will ever do that
15. January 2018 at 16:33:34
Were you not so far from here, we could come and give you a hand with your stash...
15. January 2018 at 16:41:43
@Olly either that I ship a bunch to the next Scalemates meeting at Wangerooge
15. January 2018 at 17:20:41
Never mind stealing Robbie's stash, I want to steal his hobby room! I will be patient, you have to sleep sometime Robbie!

I wish i could have that kind of space
now i am modelling in the living-room
16. January 2018 at 14:55:13
After reading some of the comments, I am one who is quite lucky, but will not post pics because of that. all of us have made it the best we can! My stash on the other hand ...can't compete with a lot of you guys! lol
16. January 2018 at 17:12:39

Folks, it took me over 50 years to get where I am at with my man cave. I am glad/thankful i have one now and even better minus a carpet monster. Now if I loose a part, I will need to blame the time/space continuum.
16. January 2018 at 20:01:46
First off, Spanjaard..You couldn't have said it better! As I said we all make the best of what we have, which keeps us smiling! 2nd..Robbie...well put on that time/space continuum! Watch out for it! It gets me all the time!LOL
16. January 2018 at 20:39:54
You guys obviously are not "Trekkies". It is "Space / Time Continuum"!
16. January 2018 at 22:40:09
you are incorrect my dear Peter... carpet monster is actually a multidimensional creature that takes its pray into a realm where we can get them...
you can call it space / time continuum of course
live long and prosper (would be nice to finish our stash actually)
16. January 2018 at 22:51:06
Hey I am an original Trekkie. TOS - here is a pic from my stash overflow album showing I have some Star Trek kits in my stash - [img1]
Even have some Lost in Space and Forbidden Planet (hence my name
16. January 2018 at 23:04:36
Gentlemen, it goes without saying that all Modellers live in an alternate universe. It could be corrected of course if we could perform a perfectly syncronised reversal of the Space / Time continuum's polarity. Then our evil Carpet Monsters would have no choice in revealing the location of all that lost PE. Consider the human perfection that could be attained if that stolen PE could be fitted into position onto 10,000 models worldwide in perfect syncronisation. I can see the light radiating from the horizion now!
17. January 2018 at 00:07:55
no Star Trek in my stash unfortunately
but yes, i started with TOS too
i like your idea Peter...
17. January 2018 at 00:13:29
Forbidden planet movie I have seen... just some time later than when it was done
17. January 2018 at 00:17:18
Now that was a fantastic movie! Walter Pigeon wasn't it?
