Today I have done no work. Uni or otherwise. Instead I received a package within which were my two paint stations and tool station I had ordered a few days before. I saw these items on a Tau blog a friend had linked me to. I did a bit of looking around and found a UK based store ( Terrascenic.co.uk)selling them, at a decent cost. Looking for a nice desk tidy, and sick and tired of hunting through my paint box for that elusive paint, I decided to buy some. I ordered two of the paints and one of the tool. The cost wasn't too bad - originally coming to just over £50, I did find that the postage was pretty steep (almost £7!!). I was now a little apprehensive. However, they came very fast. I ordered them at about 5:30pm Monday, and they arrived before 11pm Wednesday. Pretty speedy.
Once I got a look at them I was quite daunted. It comes in a flat pack, which requires you build it yourself - as expected. The instructions state you need three items for this. PVA glue, clippers and a bit of sandpaper. And its true. That is all I used. Following the instructions was no great task, and after assembling the first one the others were not so bad. I did find that it could be annoying when joining one side, the other (which was already assembled) tended to topple over. But that was only a niggling thing, once all together and left to dry the frame was pretty study. Anyway here are some photos of my assembled racks.
One thing to note, is that they are all interlocking. You can add as many as you like into a row, or an angle if you use the corner racks. I chose not to, due to my desk layout.
As you can see, there is room for most of your tools and paint brushes, as well as a water well. The painting one has slots cut out so you can see GW pot labels, the Vallejo paints sit on a small support below the one where a GW one would sit. This does have the disadvantage of hiding the pot labels - and so the paint names, but as I can clearly see the paint, its not that big a deal.
I am so far rather pleased with this purchase. Its made my desk tidy and I can keep my most used colours - or the ones I'm using on an army/mini all in arms reach, without having to lift the post to see what colour it is.
I hope you have enjoyed this little ramble, and consider buying one or two yourself.
Huh. When I first looked at it I thought I saw uncorrugted carboard. What I really like about it is that it's fitted for vallejo/reaper paints and GW paints. I'd get a set, but I already have a nice paint carousel.

Looks great, although personally I need something that makes the bottles take up *less* horizontal space on my workbench, not more
Now is there something like this in the United STates that I can get?
