On 2 December 2013 as 12:38 am Singapore time (I was sleeping at the time), itineranthobbyist asked
Selfish of me to ask, but yes, I would like to see pics of your painting setup and storage.
So, here it is – Thomo’s Current Hole. Location is in Tanjong Pagar in Singapore. The view from the window in Thomo’s Hole takes in some ships parked in the straits – although there is a building going up there which is going to get in the way of that view.
Storage for the figures (6mm, 15mm and so on) is in plastic file boxes that I get from a local stationery store here. They are about SG$5 each and stack nicely. In side I stick two sheet of adhesive thin metal sheet and make sure that the bottom of each base has a magnet there. Storage could not be simpler.
Painting table is a mess and needs a tidy-up. For spray painting I purloined a couple of DHL boxes from somewhere. They are about the right size. I put a Tamiya turntable inside and on a sheet of 3mm MDF which is slightly smaller than A4, I attached another thin metal sheet. I wrap that board in glad wrap (cling wrap, saran wrap). The magnetic bases hold the figures still while spraying and the cling wrap stops the board I use on the turntable getting too many layers of paint on it. Open the box, open the window, switch on the
fax fan, put mask on, put board on turntable, spin and spray and voila, job done!
