|It took a while to get this far, but was surprisingly easy to build.|
If you haven't had a chance to go look at the plans over at Vexar Designs, what you are looking at are two rooms. The first is an entrance which will have a desk facing a front door. The next room will have four chairs and four computers and a tv monitor on the back wall. I may also throw some TV monitors in the common wall facing the computer center- it will depend on how things look at that point. Right now, the design in 22 inches long by 8 inches wide. I do plan on building additional spaces after this project is done. Hallways will go immediately left and right of this section, and a mission briefing room/dojo is planned for one side, and a conference room and General's office is planned for the other side.

On the other hand, it does look like the stuff is really bad to breath in, so I've been wearing a face mask that I got from the grocery store. Its the kind of mask that you see people wearing in epidemic movies. I'm using it to cut down on the possibility of breathing the dust in when I sand the styrene down. I have a ventilation fan going, and I have been washing my hands every time I get up to do something else after I am done working on my project. And if the styrene dust is bad, I think the fumes from the "plastruct bondene", the cement used to bond it together, is probably horrible. It sticks like death and you can taste it even through the mask. I don't want to know what kind of crap it does to the human body. It does say that "this product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer", on the back of the bottle, so that is lovely. I also read that this stuff can be absorbed through your skin, so I've been really careful about not dumping this junk on me. But it does get the styrene to stick together is seconds, and cures in 30 minutes, so hey, it could kill me, but it makes the model building go quickly.
Until next time.
