I recently took some photos of my models, after being cleaned of dust and such, from around the apartment I live in. I thought it would be interesting to see where your models "live". How about posting some photos of where you keep your finished "prizes". Thought it might be interesting to see others models in their home environment! Take care, Russell

All of my 'renaissance' builds completed to date.

Good to see the Enterprise Russ. I can never fully trust a man that doesn't drink deeply of the Star Trek cup.

Richard, your models are great to look at, thanks for sharing it with us. The FW is particularly neat to see!! As for the Enterprise, yes indeed, warp one please. Russell

P.S. It is true the cutaway is the Enterprise, if you look closely at the warp engines, you see NCC-1705 U.S.S. Excalibur! LOL LOL

I didn't want to leave out, last but certainly not least, the three commercials jobs I have built along with a small Beechcraft I built too. LOL Enjoy. Russell

Hi Russell. I'll lay odds you do not own a cat...

Hi Karl, you are correct, no cat here. I don't have any pets currently. If I did, I tend more toward dogs anyway. LOL Thanks for looking. Russell

Russell, that's some collection of built aircraft models you have. Very impressive to say the least. Looks like you have them just about everywhere, including the laundry area. How do you control the dust other then just constant cleaning? That would drive me nuts.

Will have to take some pictures of my small collection and post them in your thread. Since most of my models to date are 1/35 scale armor, they're each in a plastic display case. The 3 aircraft models I posted pictures of since my return to the dark side are in a large plastic storage case. And all are housed on one bakers rack. Eventually I'll get around to making my own plastic display cases for my aircraft models out of Plexiglas.

Great gallery there, Russell. The bases really set them off.

The Enterprise poster - why can you see the interior? Collision with space junk? Disruptor fire?

My models live in two glass cabinets (except a few old ones who have been relegated to a big cardboard box on top of the wardrobe.)

Hi Joel, well, the dust is a problem to say the least. I simply have to go around and clean them all from time to time since I don't have a plexiglass case for them. I don't know how I do it sometimes! LOL
Eirik, your models looks really good there. I like the Spitfires all together, good work. Thanks for sharing it with us. Russell
