    Has anyone used HobbyZone work space organisers? Are they good? What are the pros and cons?

    Does anyone recommend or advise against any specific modules?

    What tools have people used to remove the interconnecting stubs?

    Are there any good alternatives to HobbyZone’s organiser products?

    For reference, here is a link to the HobbyZone website, and here is a link to the Reorganize my hobby space with HobbyZone OTT project by @frederique555.

    I’ve got a few of their paint racks. I’ll upload a photo below. I don’t have a full modular all the bells and whistles set up. They came with magnets you can slide into holes on either side of the paint rack if you want to connect them together.

    One of the other members of my podcast has a hobbyzone setup which he absolutely loves, he’s going to get a quick vid done for you tonight which I will share for you later (likely my morning) just showing it off and giving his opinion. Hope it helps.

    I have (more than) a few – improving my hobby area has been what has kept me sane during lock down (pics of modules/set up below)

    In terms of tools needed, I used a Stanly knife to trim the connectors, wood glue to join the pieces and masking tape to keep things together while the glue dried. I also used a a rubber mallet to knock the magnets into the holes (no glue needed), but any hammer/blunt object would do. One tip I found useful was to mark the polarity on the magnets with a felt tip pen before I started so that I put them in correctly.

    The most useful modules I have found are the paint racks, six draw units (for bits), a 3 draw unit (for tools), the spru holders and the display cases. The sprue holders and display cases were the biggest supprise, but I have found I really like being able to see my minis while I build/paint and that keeping the spurs out of my build area has made things a lot easier.

    Hope this helps – let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

    Has anyone tried out the Paint Hangers and Paint Hanger Base, without attaching them to a wall?

    It’s fantastic stuff, can’t say anything against these that I’ve got. The only advice I can give is make sure your magnets are all aligned the same in each module and clean up excess glue as it can make the drawers tough to open.

    I see you have the OM07b – Brushes and Tools Module there @flatbattery. How do you find it? Do you think that you would have preferred the OM07a – Brushes and Tools Module now that you’ve used the OM07b?

    @totsuzenheni to be honest I find a bit fiddly to use, where it is now (close and to the side) is the easiest place for access but still not ideal. In hindsight I would have gone for the OM07a, if I didn’t want to keep the tops clear for paint and handle storage.

    @totsuzemheni – if it helps i spent a long time weighing up between those two modules. I went with 07b in the end as i didn’t want to sacrifice space for paint racks on the top row. 7b has worked our great for me. The only benefit i can see of the 7a now is that the tool rail is probably easier to remove and replace if you want to use it for hanging masking tape etc.

    I see it on your rig now @tobymagill . The painting racks are a consideration for me too of course, and at the same time on the one hand i think i like the looks of the paint brush holder part of OM07b because one paint brush won’t get hidden behind another, and on the other hand i think i would prefer the tools holder on OM07a. Thinking about it i think i would like a merry-go-round paint brush holder version of OM07a.
