Ken,
Two questions...

All them boxes up top...are they previously built kits, or still avaiting assembly one day?

And WTF with the pink flamingo in the corner???

Very comfy looking work space despite the flamingo  Grin...a tad jealous right now.

Nice workshop, Helmut!
But what is that electric orange thing???

Regards, Hauk
Hello Hauk

This is a drive motor for a flexible shaft for dental handpieces technology.


Dental handpieces to use tools.

Perhaps an idea for a topic "tools for the workbench".

My Sons in his last year of dental school! I can't wait until he starts his practice. All those fringe benefits!
The first thing I want to borrow are those cool glasses they have, and then one of those cool lights on the overhead track, and then,.........................

Dan, all the kits on the shelves are unbuilt, but a lot of them have been opened for parts.

BTW, that's not just ANY pink flamingo.  It's outlined in twinkle lights.

Since Mr. Potato Head made fun of my clean workbench, here's a recent shot.

Jerry,

It's my Michael Jackson look!  Grin Grin

I often use a cotton glove (buy them at a photography supply shop) when doing detail painting and weathering (especially when working with brushes), as it protects against body oils and moisture on the model/parts while I am holding/handling them for extended periods of time (also helps guard against the inadvertant fingerprint). The glove also gives me a soft clean cotton surface (on the back of my hand) where I can wipe the brush, or dab off some excess paint/thinner (in lieu of a cotton rag draped over my arm or on the bench...or using my shirt sleeve).

My bench time and builds always feel like a giant game of "Where's Waldo"   Lips sealed  (Yes there is actually a build underway here  Undecided )

... I suspect it's one of these tiny three wheeled vehicles mentioned here some where else I spotted in your pic ...  Huh

... ah, I found it ... seems it's one of the Daihatsus?

These are 1/32 kits from ARI. I think they are small enough, and unique enough vehicles that you might be able to pass them off as 1/35. If using figures just use some that are on the large end of the 1/35 spectrum.

The kits ran from $7 to $9 (top one being the 7). They are older molds, and do require some clean-up, and can stand to have some additional and refined detiling done with styrene......but all in all, a heck of a deal, for some very interesting pieces. The top kit (which is the one I will be working with) consists of 25 parts (supposed to be 27, but my kit was missing the 2 windows), and a decal sheet.

It is amazing how a pair of tweezers will interlock with a brush or other tool when you try to pick it up from the pile.
