Not even close. Too clean, and only two pairs of... pliers... on the bench, and all the planes look pretty much uncrashed, well-cared-for, and flight-ready. A proper shop/airplane room looks more like a graveyard combined with a plastic surgery clinic run by Hannibal himself.

You got a lot of work to do

Yes, addicts, by their very nature, are slavenly housekeepers, tools everywhere, broken parts strewn about, puffed liPos in random locations throughout the area...

This is really bad, you must immediately look up the local branch of neataholics anonymous. When you get this problem all straightened out, then you can join here.

That's exactly how my work room (a.k.a. time machine)looks like. It's a wreck!

I just had to run out and snap a pic of the workshop. Just like you should never trust a skinny chef, you shouldn't trust a neat hobbyist.

Your F-86 looks hungry with that huge intake. You better feed it.

Start with a pair of her shoes.

You are getting closer, but you're nowhere near what it should be yet. Heck, I can see all kinds of workbench top. That should never be visible, it must be protected from light so it won't fade.

It generally takes me 30 minutes just to reload my tool box to go flying. I NEVER put tools away, cause you just gotta get them out again. A person once told me in a machine shop(the owner, I ran the shop) Roy is the best pilot here. He can pile it higher and deeper than any one I know

I put all my tools in a pile and then out my hat on top of it. It's like it was never there.
