I have already had to change my keyboard because the previous one was covered in paint. Also, there was barely room for a cutting board, let along anything else. Under pressure from my wife, I decided to do something about it. There is no more space in the hobby room - if you look carefully, you can see some of the track from my model railroad along the wall behind the Mac. The railroad takes up a lot of space; then there are two upright freezers and my bookcase. As it is, the railroad is fully kitted out with storage underneath as well so I had nowhere else to go in this room.
The decision was taken that I should move my actual modelling onto the dining table, whilst carrying out the airbrushing in the hobby room with the use of my newly constructed cabinet. There were two issues.
- I didn't have anything that I could work on other than the A1 cutting board that I use for cutting out patchwork fabrics. I didn't really was to start getting modelling mess on that.
- The lighting in the living room, in spite of being halogens fitted into the ceiling, was quite poor. In a fairly large room it was fitted with only four 50w halogens, so we rely on spot lighting for most thing.
