Old Hippie, What you see as far as aircraft models are the ones I worked on in my USAF career, preceeding the F-102A, is F-89, T-33, F-101B, and after the F-102A, is the Blackbird (SR-71A), F-4D, T-38A, then two models the folks at work gave me when I retired from Civil Service, a U2/TR-1, and an F-117A. All the stuff above the lights are my transmitters and recievers for the model racing boats, and a roll of paper towels and some engines in boxes for the boats. Off the side of the computer, next to my roll-a-way tool box is a Sherline mini-lathe, all the attachments are in a box on the floor below the table it's sitting on. To clarify a little, my dad and I built a workshop in the backyard, it's 12' X 20' X 12' tall, it's big enough to put my GT in there and work away. All my stuff used to be out there and the dogs were in the garage where my stuff is now, the dogs are in the workshop (barn). Guess where the priorities are? Oh yeh, it's air-conditioned now too!!
Nobody, that's my kinda fun place, I just wish I had something like that. The Lady of the house doesn't want to stay here after she retires. She wants to get a place where we won't have to store the motorhome and I won't have to rent two storage garages for all my other stuff. I just like being able to work outside on the car. With a normal rain fall of 10 inches a year, it's gong to be hard to let her talk me into moving too far away.
