What does your hobby room/workshop look like?


Here's a rare picture of part of my hobby room. A few helis are out of frame, a Gaui X4 II, Align 450 Sport and a Goblin 420. A Gartt 450L is also hiding behind the 700E DFC and 550E 3G. I also have 5 planes and the glider in the picture collecting cobwebs (literally). All are flyable. It's an addiction, I know.

My workshop lacks a sit down work bench, so I normally end up building on the family room table.

My other hobby is restoring pinball machines. I currently have two others, a limited edition Lord of the Rings (I live in New Zealand, so I had to have this one), and a fully restored Twilight Zone.

So what does your hobby room look like and what other hobbies do you have?

Nice hobby corner with everything in reach and a good mix of heli's and quads. I need one like that.

Your other hobby is an interesting one. Not one you would want to have in New Zealand, as nothing like that can be brought in. I love large spiders. That Chilean Rose is very nice specimen.

I also have some pinball machines I've restored (old hobby). I down to three right now from six. One has kinda become a heli hangar most of the time. I also have a couple of slot machines. The Medusa was one of the very first that talked and implemented "zipper flippers up top".

Hehe, his shop looks like a hospital compared to mine.

Weird that I have exactly the same shelving brackets.

You can never have enough pegboard.

My workshop looks like a disaster area...

At any given time, there are parts from helicopters, toy trains, antique phonographs, Ford V-8 parts, model airplanes, etc. strewn liberally across the workbench.

Over the last two decades, three expeditions have attempted to reach the far end of the garage-none has returned...

Cool! And we've both found them useful as a heli hanger.

Definitely looks like a hospital compared to mine, as well. I started off with a box for each pinball machine, each model, servos, motors, esc's, but it just grew out of control. The for sorting box is now two full boxes.

You have a limited edition Lord of the Rings ? Sweet!

My workshop is a mess with storage of all sorts.. not much of a workshop.

I also play guitar, like helis, you cant have to many.

Bro, it is Christmas season!
Mine looks very crap. I even sleep with four Lipo packs on my bed. I make sure I don't disturb them when I turn around.
