Shocked My Inside Model Room

Post  badbill on Mon Jan 23, 2017 9:46 am

Just got done with a major re-organizing of my inside model room. I have a 16x30 outside shop I build in, this is a spare room in my house. Friday evening I decided to move as many of my planes etc. out of the outside shop, so they wouldn't get covered with balsa dust ( been lots of building going on! ), not to mention taking up room out there. Shot a few pics of the almost finished project and thought I would share them. Everything from DLG's to F5B Beers

Bad Bill I guess (from what I see) you might relate:

This past week I was sick and DirectTV was puke sorry full of re-runs

So I caught a episode of DRL....Drone Racing league.... and followed it until the Championship

I have had a bad taste about drones....BUT was immediately caught up in this sport/hobby as they did a REAL good job of featuring each of the final contestants, their teams, their training and practice at local events...

I was immediately transformed buy the fact that the youngest kid competing and his dad....They came into this as total novice's, and started off BUILDING their own First Person View racing models then teaching each other how to have fun in the back yard

The kid was way better than dad and he progressed through local contest to a national status

My bias AGAINST drones was shattered

BTW, you butt head, OK not really your fault.... there are many other folks showing off their shops lately

This post reminds me, I really really must get space managment and Model distribution / storage under control

Way back, with mostly combat and 1/2a this was not a issue ---but as I build more and more of .35 to .45 (40~60' Wing Span) models I do need a better plan...

Well, I actually fly some multirotors, but no drones. And haven't even done anything with them in a while, I lost interest when everyone and their brother got one. I still have to move my combat wing rack over, and I want to clean up the area around the TV more. I'm happy with what I've gotten done so far though!

Nice assemblage BB. But my eye immediately went to the camo Taiwan marked (Yak?). Beautiful.

When I think of drones #4 shot comes to mind, maybe at longer range 00 Buck.

You got it. I should of known, I have the Sterling edition P-40. Going around one-eyed for the next 10 days will be no fun.

I admit to a bias _against_ drones. I _fly_ one! So do a lot of guys at the club.

I know of several being hit by semi-trucks around here from people operating their Christmas presents in an unsafe manner. I almost mowed one... haven't found the owner and it is not something I have a compatible radio for.

I applaud people operating in a safe manner, even if minor accidents happen like a statue ends up holding a drone for a week till someone can cherry pick it out. (Local drama, the owner was doing a photo shoot and had wind problems. No injuries or property damage other than loss of the battery due to depletion and costs of a crew to recover it.)

So if you operate in a safe manner, have your contact info on the machine I applaud you. Personal experience says for every person who does it right there are 10 who do it wrong.

That is a cool spread of very nice models in a well done, organized, eye appealing set up. Thanks for sharing.

I'd pillage and maim for a 16' x 30' workshop.. I'm lucky if I can get a 16" x 30" table cleared-off. Hats off to you, for getting the job done.

This is what I'm currently dealing with..

Looks great to me. Ya got TV and surround sound speakers. As long as you stay in the 1/2a sizes you're working in plenty of space!

Thanks. After my Wife passed away 3 yrs ago, I lost almost all interest for quite a while.. over a year. Really have gotten into it lately, especially control line.
