Ah the nomadic modeler  :D I've managed to fit all my sculpting tools and sculpy supplys in to an A4 wooded box so i can work down stairs (near the cooker) but thankfully now i don't have to do the same with my scratchbuilds and kits. Well done for being able to get all your kit in to 4 boxes, it drove me mad unpacking and repacking it all when i was without a mancave, plus the kids kept picking up painted models  >:(

Here's mine. I'm just getting back into the hobby so my stash is not as big as others. My daughter is moving back in December so she'll be taking this room.


Paint booth and a little stash. The wallyworld compressor is nice but very loud!


Where the magic happens. I'm working on The Invaders UFO and Little Nellie. I've got blueprints for Fireball XL-5 scratchbuild that I want to start soon and I'm going to start on my first diorama as well.

To those without a place, be patient!
I traveled all over the USA and was on several ships and worked out of an old tackle box.
When we finally settled in I got the unfinished basement with the stipulation I finish it to the female standards. . .(Agree to anything!)
I got my Fortress of Solitude! Which I of course built first.
Another tip, NEVER put the laundry room in the basement or near the man cave!
NEVER!!!
You will be tasked to put a load in, take a load out, or worse yet, she who must be obeyed will be down there all the time! Usually when you are making the sounds of a jet engine/ Ion Cannon or such.
And then she will act surprised that men are just bigger boys that still scratch and make rude noises but now shave.
Women!

Here are a couple picture of my decompression space. I basically have a corner of our family room. My desk is in the corner, my ever growing collection of unbuilt kits is on the right side. On the left is the few completed models I have that survived our basement renos :'(.

Fortunately I talked my wife into using some space upstairs so it is climate controlled. The only problem is that it is easy to be distracted!...

Nice!  The movie room is particularly cool!

Here are a couple of shots of mine, taken back at Christmas (when I got my digital camera).  Here's the left end of my bench:



and here's the right end:



My brother christened this, "The Forge", because I also have a casting pot, but I moved that out to the garage and do my casting out there.

I'm gradually working through the pile of figures currently on the bench, and at the same time, working through a collection of kits started over the last 3 years, as a New Year's Resolution build.  I'm not starting any new kits, nor buying any new kits, till I finish the 12 resolution builds.  So far, I finished 2.

I haven't taken pictures of it, but my stash is behind the perspective of the camera in these pics.  I'll have to take some pics and post those, too.

Regards,
Brad

And while it's not related to modeling, here is another place where I go to unwind, my beer garden:



That was taken the weekend after Easter.  Since then, the big old maple that shades the patio has put out its leaves, and I've added some more yews along the berm, behind the porch rockers and bench.  I have more tables that I put out, when I have people over.

Prost!

Man cave, YES!
Backyard, NO. :'(
At least for me anyway.
I do have beachfront property, but the lake is far away.
(Very sandy soil, no grass. . .Beach Front! My wife doesn't agree either. :()
One of the many summer jobs is to put in under ground sprinklers. Apparently to have wet beachfront property.
