One Modeller’s Hobby Desk

Like many others, I’m always interested to see how and where other railway modellers do their model building. I know that many modellers simply don’t have the space for a dedicated hobby desk or work bench while others have the luxury of quite extensive workshops.

The Workshops Rail Museum at Ipswich near Brisbane (here in Australia) has quite a large model railway display that runs a lot of scale models of Queensland prototypes and here is a photo I took … during a recent visit … of the work bench used by the modeller who maintains and builds those models.

The only thing not shown in the photo is a small drillpress (the type you would buy in any hardware store) that’s located off to the right of this photo. I hope it will give you some inspiration if you lack room or you’re just starting to think about setting up your own hobby desk.
