Hey Fred............. in the third picture of your workshop , hanging against a white wall, is the structure of an uncovered wing. Doesn't look like a glider wing,.....could it be that of a Spitfire? :?:

Hey eagle eyes Keith   :P

This is the wing of a scale P47  :D

I brought that with me when I moved to Ireland.. And never touched it after that ! One day... :roll:

Nice set up Vincent, very tidy :clap: I would like a place like that.

 But why are the work benches clear? Are you not building ANYTHING :shock: (Or did you clear them before taking the picture? :twisted: )  

And as for models in the living room,......... my wife would shoot me!

Well,

as Keith asked me, here are the pictures of my basement. It's warm there in the winter and cold in the summer. Perfect place to build modells of submarines, ships and flying wings.

This is the workbench room. Here I am building wings up to 5m span:



Another view with my lathe:




Here is the room beside, where is my hangar and harbour:



and a nice view on my CNC milling maschine:



It's not as clean as Keith's or Vincent's room, but cleaner than Fred's...

Regards

Lothar

Well,...............that's a pretty impressive set up Lothar. :D   I've never seen aeroplanes and submarines in the same workshop before. (In fact I've never seen a model submarine before!)

With that lathe and cnc machine I'm surprised you don't make model steam locomotives as well!

Very good :clap:  :clap:

:P  :P  Well...Spent 5 hours cleaning my garage Saturday !
I can now open the door, and actually see the garage door (forgot that was a white door, that I can open !  :P  ) !  :roll:
Need some new photos, not perfect, way too many machines, but I can use the workbenches now ! Yeepeee !

Hey Fred,

Don't go away before you've posted some pictures of your "new," clean, workshop. :clap:

I want to see how much stuff you had the courage to throw away! :lol:

That's some building room Joe. But, where's the fridge for the beer?
