That's quite clever! Ingenious, even! Must have taken you some time to measure and calculate to decide precisely where to place the pegs for maximizing the number of figures that can be displayed while spacing them so as to not look too cluttered.

Cracking thread, just caught the whole thing today. Really like the workshop build.
Your collection looks very well in situ.
Condolences too on the recent loss of your Father in Law and your best friend within a few days of each other.
Very good friend of mine passed in March due to a brain aneurysm. Starts you wondering doesn't it?

Would have liked it a bit bigger, but it will do.

Thanks...it was a shock them both going. Especially my friend.

I’m really liking that picture RT Wink. Hey you should enter that picture into this months photo of the month but that’s only my suggestion and if only if you want to RT.

"Hello chaps ! rather warm isnt it ? So how are we getting on with the new office build ?"
" We !?...what do you mean we !!?? I'm sweating buckets and Charlie has passed out in the heat !!"
Workshop/VAM room build - Page 8 20190628-164559


Wow it's a hot day today. Anyway...here's the main carcass finally done..
Workshop/VAM room build - Page 8 20190628-165911

And here it is with the 'roof on' ...the idea is for a permanent dio on the bottom and temporary dios on the top.

Ah yes, ....."Shelf Diving".
Almost an Olympic sport for some action figures, ...and I can add that MAMs also indulge in that very same pastime.
Forward double somersault with pike....degree of difficulty 6.4?

I tend to use those little black waist-grabbing stands to prevent this but your "wooden-stick-up-the-leg" is far less visible, although those long spikes up the trouser legs kind of bring tears to one's eyes.....  Twisted Evil
Wouldn't work so well for any of your fellers wearing short pants though.

Reminds me a little of a police identity line-up, ...as in "I think it was the third bloke from the left Officer!" Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Your passed-out Charlie reminds me of my Jason and some of the dramatic turns he's been known to put on about the heat!

The build is looking impressively solid. I like the idea of having a "primary" permanent set and a dedicated spot for temporary set-ups and displays.

Looking good, RT, nice and solid!

It's always the earlier workers who pay the price, doing the construction before the air conditioning is installed. I hope the general contractor got the porta-pottys ordered... clown

Looking forward to seeing your progress. I was curious how much head-room they have in the lower level?

Thanks.

Not as much as I would have liked, but I think it should be ok as long as I'm careful with the angle of my pics.
