On The Workbench

I built this model of my workbench because I had the wood. It's a pretty faithful 1:16 recreation of the real thing; all it's missing is some NBW (nut-bolt-washer) castings for the legs and the rails against the wall. I couldn't find any that were the right size.

The other criticism I have of it is that I wasn't able to get the right color for the concrete wall.

Other than that, not bad for a project I slapped together because I happened to have the stripwood in my parts pile. The real thing is built with 2x4s, 1/4" plywood and 1/8" masonite. The model is stripwood, with the masonite represented by paint.


  • Shucks, I managed to pick the one picture that doesn't show the ragged edge of the backing board, which is a couple of pieces of foamcore butted together and edged with cardstock.

    Assembled with white glue, painted with Vallejo acrylic paints. The screws are Sakura ink, foolishly applied. I may paint over them.c
