    Ah, well, please see the latest pics. However I am at this moment trying my best to refuse any, un model / aircraft type addition to the room. But as we know, nature deplores a vacuum.

    Yes, pink. the remnants of the kids play room. I couldn't justify swapping it. Anyway, feminine side and all that modern stuff............... 


    So, I'm finished. My den / cave is complete.

    The work area.

    And moody light effect type thing.

    Well I say it's done. Just the curtains and compressor to move in, then I really am done. All set for a winter of building.

    Exactly, that's why here, I've built loads of deep shelves - they should keep me going for a while yet. If I stick to 1:72, they should last for ever !
