Looks like it's got real potential- but wear a decent fun mask anyway. Some of the stuff in the tools we use are extremely hazardous.

I'll find out when I fire it up and see how much pull the blower has. Start with Frebrze air effects.

I was thinking to use incense- then you could see the smoke being drawn into the fan or not.

Back to the booth. (Yes Jason the blower has a lot of pull) Left to right. As the window installers left it. Adding the 90 degree elbow. The vent hose. and last the flange is affixed to the top of the booth, I put some silicon around it for air seal.

The front work shelf is added. (That is my Wife as well) The floor in the basement is anything but level. There is not a like block on the back legs. The vent is installed!! Switches an fixtures.

And the finished booth in its galvanized glory. Now is sits ready for me to spray no matter the weather, once I finish a little picking up.

PS, my dear Wife who was great material aid in this project questioned why all the pictures. I need to show her an entire build thread.

Now I need to move all my rattle cans to the basement, and learn to use that airbrush.

That's a pretty impressive setup you've made for yourself, Tesral

I just finished hoofing my rattle cans to the basement. I need a rattle can depository down there. Right now they are in the middle draw of the model holding cabinet.

While digging for rattle cans guess what I found? Three more Taj in resin of all things. As much resin as I went through to get those few.

I have not abandoned this build, life has in the way gotten.

More stuff for the spray booth. A place to put said rattle cans. Some Taymia painting stands. A cleaning kit for the airbrush.

The weekend was spent running around. Not on modeling.

Enough being catmatic. Back to the BURD!

Primer underside. The spray booth does its job well even on stinky rattle cans. I am freed from the vagaries of weather! Oh, the stick sticking up? A small bit of aluminum tubing to keep the stand hole from getting clogged with paint.

Wait for a bit of drying and the topside. The stand works a treat, it rotates easily. I'll give the Burd a day to set hard and it will get the topcoat of flat white.

The other stand in the set, Burd still installed on the small one. The wire things around the edge of the big one are clips.

And a storage cabinet for rattle cans and airbrush supplies.
