About this deal

Or, another example, fixing a household appliance or touching up a broken, chipped doodad that your cat tripped/chewed/clawed/mangled. Maybe you have other hobbies that could use your attention and you want to keep this activity contained. A hobby workstation gives you that versatility. Your hobby workstation is your “place” to work on small things that may get lost on any other desk. Paint compatibility

Continue reading for the review and tips for the best 13 hobby paint stations for miniature painting and models. All the modules work on a simple grid with dimensions generally set 30cm (width) by 15cm (height and depth). Though there are with the odd couple of units taking up 30cm in height and some smaller units you can use to fill gaps. The HobbyTrayz Modeling Base Station will fit any workspace. The hobby station is 12×9″ (or about 30 x 23cm) in size, which is plenty for working on most miniatures. This is particularly useful for assembling model kits. It comes with space to organize paints, glues, and compartments to hold your tools, e.g., brushes, tweezers, and other helpful doodads. There is also a self-healing cutting mat built into the tray. The module shown here is one which has the largest quantity of components. It has the frame, the compartments, then 6 individual drawers with separate windows. Other than wedging some larger bases in this, I’m yet to find a useful function for it. With the optional insert, you can separate this into 8 small compartments – I can’t even fit pens in it as the unit is just to low at 15cm in height. If anyone has found a hobby use for this space, let me know in the comments. HobbyZone Modular Workshop – HZ-OM04 – Corner Shelves Module

Aside from the pictures of the different modules, the front side is generally the same. Advising the use of Wood Glue (I used Gorilla Wood Glue because it’s ace), A Hammer, Paper Tape (which I generally ignored in place of clamps) and a Damp Cloth, which is absolutely Necessary! I tend to use these to store random large tools – I even fit a battery-powered Dremel tool in one of them. Again the optional inserts will split these down into 10 separate compartments.

Your roll of tissue just sits on a rod which drops into the recesses on the side plates. The rod recess could do with being deeper as a slight nudge or pull can dislodge the whole roll at times. but it’s good to have this available at a moments notice. HobbyZone Modular Workshop – HZ-OM09 – Showcase WIP Module A convenient place to store your phone or tablet while modelling. Allowing you to follow tutorials, guides or take part in conversations on your favourite hobby forum. Topper version of the tool storage module, offering the same variety of holes and hangers to provide storage for brushes and other tools such as pliers, clamps etc. Each will keep even spacing between your pots and present them all organised and sexy. It’s worth noting that the larger the pots the fewer you can store per unit. Which is why I transferred all my Games Workshop paints to dropper bottles. This means that you're able to easily create a combination that will fit in whatever space you have available.


These are big enough to hold all manner of bits and bobs. As shown above I have a massive variety of bits in these containers. HobbyZone Modular Workshop – HZ-OM02a – 3 x Drawers Module

And finally, a rather unique and strange module that’s really helpful for when you are painting for endless hours. The multimedia module is perfect to sit a tablet or phone in. Whilst it looks complicated its actually quite easy to build – especially once you have some experience with the other sets. This is one of the better modules in the set, especially if you have an excess of brushes and similarly sized tools. This is one of the few modules which takes up two tiers of your HobbyZone workstation set-up. Despite its larger size, the build is so simple. It’s just a box. The shelf is adjustable too and the window just flexes into place. Includes a variety of holes and hangers to provide storage for brushes and other tools such as piers, clamps etc. The 36mm paint storage topper has 26 holes for paints or other bottles with a similar diameter. Suitable for: Vallejo, Games Workshop/Citadel, Life Colour, Tamiya mini, Revell (enamel) and many more.A cluttered work space is a recipe for stress, according to psychologists. Even when you’re not working at your hobby desk, the mere sight of the messy space can trigger a stress response. The visual of clutter reminds you of the frustration that painting miniatures in a messy environment. A workstation takes your haphazard space and contains it in a pleasant compartment of joy (yeah, joy). 3. More creativity
