I had a rush of blood to the head and decided what with no longer being plural, and fed up with freezing my tits off spraying in my garage i'd make over my back bedroom.







Furniture C/O my favourite Swedish Retailer

Colour scheme inspired by Lampie.

Except for the choice of a windows based laptop instead of Macbook, this looks perfect!

It doesn't look like that now, there seems to be a bloody great big boat on it now, and parts of a Lanc, and a part build Mk 1 ARV

Looks good Andy plenty of wall space for shelves. (My workroom loves shelves)

There's nothing wrong with a tidy workbench, Mine's tidy all the time (maybe that's because I'm never sitting at it ) I like the display cabinet, Ikea if I'm guessing correctly (my Mum has a couple in her living room)

nice man cave andy!
its not unlike my modelling space, so i can be sure you'll be working in a little 12 inch square space in the middle of lots of half built stuff,tins, cups of tea etc.






because i certainly do!

Looking good Andy.
I expect your completion rate should go up rapidly now.

Looks great Andy,, looking forward to seeing the rush of completed models!

Inspired the colour scheme eh?,,glad to have been of help

Ikea cabinets are great, I have one of the ones in the photo in the lounge. Ikea also do a different type of cabinet which isn't in the catalogue for some reason, and I have two of these in the man cave.


At the speed I build I might have to start putting 2 models on each shelf in about 2012

Nice Cave Andy

We went to Ikea today and picked up some of the cabinets and other bits as well. We just need to find a house to put it all in now
