Your Model Workbench

The first thing you'll want as a model builder is a good place to work on your models. Ideally, you'll have the luxury of being able to build your own work area away from the rest of the traffic in your home. Mine's in a 7 by 10 foot alcove in the basement. The surfaces are hollow-core interior doors from a home center. The walls are lined with pegboard and shelving. If you want, you can read the whole story of how to build something like this.

If you don't have the the room for something like this, you could reduce it to one door panel in area, or find an old desk or table at a garage sale.

Your prof's workbench

In any event, find a place that you can call your modeling area. If it has to be an area that shares other uses, then get a fishing tackle box for storing your tools and supplies. A cabinet or storage container for storing kits in progress will also be a good idea.
