I can't see a powerful vacuum cleaner, every time you drill a hole or file some part the swarf will get everywhere , in the hull on the floor, everywhere!
Next to the mallet a vacuum is paramount! 8)

Brian

Love your workspace! I notice the commanders cupola, which is really nice! What colours did you use and what brand? Also what techniques did you use for the wear/chipping?

Many Thanks Allan

Thank you Allan, I picked up the copula in the for sale section. I don’t know the technique used for it since it came pre painted.
