Gibbs's Bench

Postby gibbs » Sun May 10, 2015 6:42 pm

As some of you may know I've not had the best of years so far and while things haven't really settled down I'm at a point where I'm feeling a bit better about things, however during this period my bench sort of got buried and I finally got round to getting it sorted out.
Due to the size of the computer I built over christmas I have had to swap around which one of my desks my bench resides upon so it now looks like this

It's taken a while but on the plus side I was finally able to get my figurines out of there boxes and on display and I also managed to find the missing sprue from my brummbar build so I can now go back and finish that along with the puma

Thank you so much for posting these pics!!! I love disecting folks' workbenches for ideas and inspiration, as there are so many clever uses of space to be seen. More times than not, we all make due with an area we maximize for multiple uses. I think it shows the imagination and resoursefulness that typically out modelers and wargame miniature builders ahead of the pack.

The figurines are VERY cool...what's the story behind them? They look like manga figures to my uninformed eye.

I'm very interested to see the Brummy and Puma builds lead their way to conclusion.

Thanks although with the new toys I've treated myself to theres a bit less room now
in terms of the figurines they are the Snow Miku versions of Hatsune Miku they release a new one each year with the design being submitted and selected by fans I've got the ones from 2011,13,14 and 15 I just need to track down the 2012 ones, the ones I've got are Bootlegs which I why there is so many of them as the proper ones can cost any where from £70 a piece and going up each year as the snow ons are a limited production run for each year whereas I paid between £20 and £25 for each set of 4 but considering I don't plan to sell them I'm not overly fussed

I also recently treated myself to the red Yukata version I've just not got them out the boxes yet

That's so cool! What got you into collecting them, and what is it about them that appeals to you so, if you don't mind my asking.

Hatsune miku is the the personification of a voice bank for the vocaloid program developed by yamaha it's a case that I have a lot of music (somewhere over 1500 albums) written using this piece of software using miku and the other voice banks I also have dvd's of 2 of the live shows in terms of the figures bar the musical aspect I think it's probably the 'cuteness' factor when it comes to them

http://www.crypton.co.jp/miku_eng - this should hopefully give you more idea about the voice bank

Thanks for the link...I had no idea about this. As a musician, I love seeing new horizons like this!
