PostSubject: My most recent Model Room   Thu 04 Jan 2018, 3:58 pm

I finally have a dedicated proper, permanent model studio.

For the past 10yrs I have always had make shift slapped/cobbled together rooms. Living in homes that we are renovating and eventually selling will cause this.

Seeing as the housing market in our area is in a state of flux and uncertainty at the moment, we have decided we'll stay put for a few years to come.

I decided claimed 250sq ft of the basement for myself, the area had been originally a man cave/bar so the water supply and drain was already in place.

I am working on setting it up as a working model shop.

The spray booth is a full on downdraft design with dims of 36x16" with a proper vent punched through the outside wall and brick. I placed it behind a bush so not to be to intrusive in the summer.

Still have a bit to work through but as a whole it is coming together.

I am currently looking for some cheap glass to make the canopy/surround for the spray booth.


Thanks for looking in. I am excited to get back and contribute to the forum once again.

Great stuff Curt. It's good to have a dedicated area so you can just walk away form the mess unstead of having to put it away.

Thanks boys.
Broke the right side glass will have to get another cut. Not a good day for glass for me, shattered two pieces.

New booth ready for use.

That's quite the stash you have there. Are you planning on making every single one of them?

Interesting paint booth. Have you considered lining the inside with plastic kitchen (saran) wrap to protect the glass?

I was amazed at the y.t. videos on how to build one's own booth. Way better than my days of spray cans and any flat surface in the basement! Congrats!

Thanks for the comments and interest guys.

Mr. H, thanks, . The plan is to always build what you buy, reality sets in when you get home from the shop, lol. 

Thanks Mark, ya I will have to get another one and have it cut at a shop. 

Don; all good man :), no need to protect the glass, just wipe it down or scrap with a blade to remove the paint. I though about using Lexan and using vinyl wrap for ease of keeping it clean. 

harron, appreciate that thanks. I can empathize with anyone who doesn't have an exhaust/vent system. We've all been there, it's a real pain. But totally doable.

Thanks Gman, appreciate it. I always enjoy our conversations. ;-)

Got the supplies hung today.

Looks like a section of a LHS - which to me is perfect for a hobby space. Too bad about the glass but everything else seems to be copacetic. That shot of the exterior vent with the rubble under it inspired a few jokey thoughts like, "Wow, that is one Powerful fan!"

Sending you positive energy for many delightful and fulfilling builds

 Kats. I will order a new piece next week. Lol, tons of volume for sure with this exhaust fan set up.
