New Hobby Station Is Near Completion

Sorry for the lack of updates, but between taking a week long motorcycle trip to Mexico and other things, I've just been swamped.

I've been working on my hobby area over the last few days and it's finally coming together.

It's not as spacious as I had hoped but since I opted to put it in my office and not build an exterior location for it, I have to make do.

I went with an Artograph 1530 Spray Booth that I have ducted out the window.  So far I really like this.  Yes it's kind of pricey but I think it's worth it.  I've had a cheap one in the past and was never happy with how it worked.
You can also see I have a new Grex Tritium TS3 airbrush.  It's a side feed and can do either gravity or siphon.  So far I've only used the gravity.  It does seem to be a bit of a paint hog but I'm still getting used to the brush so I'm sure it will get better as I learn to use it properly.
I've also picked up a few OTT Lights to help with lighting my paint area.

 I picked up this corner piece today at Lowes for $20.  I actually got two but found that one was going to be plenty so I'll be returning the unused one tomorrow.  It's perfect for the larger things that just won't fit in drawers and things that I find I use regularly.

While I was out today I stopped by Tandy Leather to get some supplies for one of my other hobbies and saw this tool stand.  The block of wood is made for leather working tools but is ideal for holding my brushes.
I think I need to get me another set of Windsor & Newton Series 7 brushes.  I really miss my old set that I passed down to a newer hobbyist earlier this year when I got in the Games & Gears brushes, which I have yet to be impressed with.

These little drawers work very well for holding minis that are in various stages of preparation.  Right now they have my Impact Chibi Dungeon Explorer models that I am chomping at the bit to paint up as well as my Super Dungeon Explore models and a few other random pieces.
And of course, there is another OTT Light which I got at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Lathan over at Burn in Designs hooked me up with some paint racks, which I will probably review in the near future.

More paints, racks and weathering powders.  For someone that paints a lot of GW models I sure don't own a lot of Citadel Paint.

So, once I'm done getting my office cleaned up and have a few minutes to myself, I plan to get busy on some painting.
