My "Manscave"

I was asked, what photobooth / Background i use for my galery pictures.
because i don't know how to insert pictures in replies, i thought to make an album of my basement.
I want to start with the photobox and so on ... have fun!

On pic #4 I see the first tray is bended down. In such kind of cases I turn it upside down so it could bend to the other side the next couple of months.

Thanks for sharing I spent a while admiring your space and the organization. Great selection of kits too. Is that the Aoshima or Testors car trailer ? I hope to make my workbench like this one day.

A dedicated room for a dedicated modeler! Love it! And a wine cellar to boot! Happy space indeed.

Thank you very much for kind words! Much appreciated! I am really surprised by your reactions to how my space affects you 🙂

@Jimbolaiya: do you mean the Trailer in the photo booth? That is frim the amt Kit with the 76(?) `76 Chevrolet Caprice with Trailer (AMT/ERTL 30031, 1:25).

Great. Not that chaotic like in my cave 🙂

Ah Ha - I noticed the 'stash' of wine in the lower left corner. Can't read the labels so I cannot comment on that part of your stash 😛

Bob Hall

22 March, 23:08
Dominik Weitzer

Like you mentioned earlier. I have to clean any ongoing projects off of the bench every evening. I have a cat that will run off with parts and/or knock stuff off.
24 March, 05:13
Christian W
Cats 😄 That is one reason, that my manscave is a cat-free-zone.
24 March, 05:24
Great place! What are the numbers on the post-its that come by on some of the pictures..? Do you number your kits? #1707 on picture 13 for example 😛
24 March, 06:07
Christian W
I can answer this. I registrated my kits before i got the knowledge of existing an amazing paltform called "scalemates". I made my own register via Excel. I also using the number for all the pictures of my modelling (for galeries or wips), starting with this number and then a "runnig" number afterwards. I have my own picture album where I have an overview of my stash nearby scalemates.
So: kits with a sticker and a # on it (in Dominik's stash) are kits
-given from me to him or
- exchanged between him and me 😉

Never thought having your brother's hand me downs could be that rewarding!!
24 March, 12:26
Dominik Weitzer
:-D thats right Nigel.

while i am in the basement, there would be no problems with pets - we have none...i wished we had a cat. but the door is always closed to my mancave :-D

Thanks for explain the numbers Brother.
i never wrote down, what kit i have, date of buying etc like my brother does. most of them i have in mind, because my stash is "not as big as others".
some other post-its are my notes, what i planed for them. for example moviecars or existing cars like the 66 Mustang with note "#001 cream" for the real FIN-Nr 1 for reference.
24 March, 14:12
That explains 😛
Thanks for the info, both of you! 🙂
24 March, 14:25
Christian W
You're welcome 🙂
25 March, 04:59
