Tom, can you snap a shot of your LED bar light (on its brightest setting) over your work area as you normally would have it while working. I'd like to see the output. Thanks mate.
Chris - it's no dimmable, but having on the desk like I do is handy. Usually I'm looking at the back side of the bulb, so the light I get is reflected off the work surface. My "monkey business room" (a phrase coined by my wife) is by far the brightest room in the entire house. 🙂
Chris, here is a pic of my room and you can see the light: This and That | Album by Cohort (1:24)
It's not super bright like Greg's. It does have 3 brightness levels but I always use it at brightest
I've decided on the bar light that Tom has, I think it'll fit better into the small space. That garage light is cool but a bit too bright for my eyes.

"Chiefing on the peace pipe" perfectly acceptable 😛 lol
I've good some good Blueberry Muffins Indica for myself... 🙂
Chaz... I'm rarely not stoned when I work on my hobbies, it usually lifts me up and gives me an artsy or positive feeling/vibe. Sometimes it takes a lot to climb of of my hole of depression/ptsd/anxiety (sometimes years)...
But yes I can't wait for all that gold trim water slide decal work on the Firebird!
*Sniffs his MICRO sol/set bottles* soon my precious... soon... lol
Ah, you should give a Tamiya JPS Lotus F1 a try if you want Gold Pinstriping
Chaz, do you mean this car: Team Lotus J.P.S. Mk.III (Tamiya 12022, 1:12) ? Beautiful car and pinstripes.
The first of the "Black Beauties". They had JPS livery on a couple of earlier cars, but that was a work of art. It's successor, The lotus 79 is possibly the best looking F1 car to this day. Unfortunately, the Tamiya decals are Yellow not Gold, but there is an aftermarket Gold set. Tamiya also did the 78 and 79 in 1/20, which is easier to find at a good price.

You forgot the loud ass sirens too !
Chris, that comment to Bob is a bit rich coming as it does from Twin Peaks!
You know, you should really do a Twin Peaks vehicle collection Chris, I think most of them are available in plastic, or close enough

Cracking photos! I must have missed this album. I remember the build.
@Nigel … I went through the instruction sheet on Saturday and I couldn't see too, how the lock should work with the ports. I will see.
@Chris .. Vallejo silver? Unbelievable. It looks like white pearl.
Nice and clean work 👍
nice! interesting, you've built it nearly the same time as i did 😄

Weird little thing
You build the coolest kits and they turn out great! I'm sooo close to ordering this, I've never seen anything like it!
Thank you and you should! It's a simple little kit, but it looks awesome on the shelf. All who look at my collection in person really like how fun it is. It was only $27 including shipping to the US from the website I linked at the top. The WOW factor makes it's totally worth it. 🙂 Cheers mate!
Also I didn't catch your comment Martin way back in April... Thanks!
Nice kit. Good job! I'll start building this today and I'am glad I saw your pictures. ^o^/
It looks really good in the flesh and something different. I have seen this kit and a fire engine and catering truck on eBay recently.
As to your next project Chris do a mash up of the Merc and Datsun !
