Part of me doesn't want to clutter up the work surfaces with kit bits now :-/
Totally understandable.

However, if you find yourself building on a folding card table in the corner of the kitchen, then you know you really have a problem.

I don't think I have completed more than 1-2 models since starting this 1-year reno almost 4 years ago!

These 1-to-1 scale builds can be major time-sucks! Your find-router-then-build-router-table-for-it reminds me of the 'Ink and Incapability' episode of Blackadder - where Edmund  needs to teach Baldrich how to read before he'll be able to proofread Dr. Johnson's new dictionary  :D

LOL, yeah, and I forgot to add the 4 hours of you tube videos on "how to build a router table", which somehow ends up with me watching Primitive Man showing how to farm sweet potatoes at 2 am.

I'm trying to choose my next kit to build. Should I do the one on the left, or the one on the right?



Of course it will be further whiffed up; the 75mm gun pods destined to become tilt engines for my gunship, and in their place a pair or 1/6 scale M134 gatling guns, which should scale down nicely to 1/35. Probably need some kind of radar or IR searchlight too.

Why not just go all in and do four from each box on a stretched chassis?  ;)
