6mm-Minis

6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

MODELLING: Work Station or Not!

Hi Guys,

I wish I could say that I have a proper work area, but I don't.

I primarily use three areas for modelling and hobby work:

1. A DESK IN MY TINY APARTMENT BEDROOM:
- I have very small desk in my bedroom, that when cleared off functions as a work surface.
- My grandfather who was a carpenter and upholsterer made it from wood and it measure about 2'x1.5'...
- I have it covered with a spare board I fit to cut the top that I cover with newspaper and a custom-cut model cutting matte when I work with sharp and pointy tools.
- I've painted a very large amount of figures at this little desk, but it is covered with detritus at the moment.

2. THE KITCHEN TABLE:
- My roommate and I dod not have a proper kitchen table... we use a fold-up table that I bought several years ago for a steal.
- It is covered with a plastic tablecloth and a nice sheet for the end where we eat.
- The far end of the table stores our radio, some CDs and a small GW shipping box or two of my models for when I work on them.
- I seem to do most of my assembling, glueing and finishing of models here.

3. THE OUTSIDE PORCH:
- I use the outside porch for spraypainting AKA priming and messy terrain work.
- I've made several terrain projects out on the porch as well as a ton of priming.
- I have made two terrain projects in the near past: the Mars Forgeworld boards and the Agriworld boards.

And, in the future (I plan to move later this Summer), I hope to dedicate the entire kitchen table to a modelling area and buy a proper kitchen table. Until then, I'm stuck using the ramshackle work areas that I presently use.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

P.S.
I don't have any photos of my work areas at the moment.
