Well There are many examples on the net about foldin desks and work table that are masterpieces on their own; fashinating but I see it more on a garage or laboratory situation rarely in a dedicated room in a flat!
Hey everybody I have an idea! Why don' t we post the photos of ours shelves where we keep our models? And our workbench? I think it would be interesting. For example i keep some model in their boxes and some on my gundam showcase right upon my turntable! My workbench is outside the balcony!
[Score: 5/10] - Comments: It is a Sea Ray Sunseeker toy (imported from Germany if I remember well) by New Bright, I choose it for the quite original proportions respect and for the discretely designed and detailed upper cabin: I painted the super structure (added led tv and kitchen faucet and deck, table deck and led lights), a professional ship yard in Sanremo took care of painting the hull in white (the original toy was yellow!), I added the marine decal blue stripe!
A GRANDE RICHIESTA! as you asked me how I did it! It is very simple! ehm not so much but: you take the lobster (minipig submarine u16 new) take out delicately the pincers (the two motors) paying attention to isolate the cables for each motors, than take away from the body the fruit (the intere block including internal battery, receiver and jack to charge) than I substitued the two motor pillars of the original fairplay kit with the two mini sub pillars very similar in sembiance and proportions, painted than reconnect the cables of the two motors with tiny cable joint to the "fruit" fixed on the exact balanced centre of the ship hull (you can see by the photos: it is right between the two main internal hollow septs). You can use the front submarine lights to enlight the fairplay lower cabins. Take care it is a nonconventional very difficult and nerve raking work but with a little help (from my friends? Noo nobody here) from the lady luck instead you can obtain the result of a mad - merely responding to command - foolish steering - lovable tugboat. hope this pics can help (Excuse me but I sealed the fruit before fixing to the hull with a lot of electric tape and sealing paint to waterproof it! So I haven't images of it naked but it is a quite simple structure! 😱 P.S. Excuse for my neapolitan-deformed english I can't do better!
I used the stack two motors; the circuits and the esc so as the control radio of the tiny submarine i got for the purpose; the weight was right to float correct by the waterline; you can see it on a video on my little Youtube channel (look at Salvatore Mazzarella ) rescuing a sunseeker predator yacht with many glamour ladies in the bathub. P.S. unfortunately I am still living at work!
