A remark by Davidjt about storing finished models prompted me to take some photos of my workshop and fleet. I should say at the start that having just completed a model, it has had a clean and tidy. It doesn't normally look like this lol!

These are my working models. The second from left on the bottom row is a project I started with my Grandson. He soon lost interest so I completed it. Laughing It will be removed to the garage shortly. The Krabenkutter is theoretically a working model, but having seen how sensitive it is to the slightestr breeze when I put it in my test tank, I will probably remove the innards and it will become display only.
In addition I have three display models in the house on general view, plus four more in my study.

How do other people store their models?

these are my model lifeboats i have built, but never see the light of day. all kept in boxes in my garage with all my other boats in total i have about 30 plus it makes me sad that i dont have room to display them. only time they are seen is when i went to shows but have not done that for 2 years

As a relatively new modeller I've yet to experience nowhere to put my models but that breaking point is rapidly approaching. Year on year I have grown to just about maxing out so I have no idea what I will do come the next project 

On a good day

On Sunday I ordered the Boulogne Etaples from CMB and at no extra cost it arrives this afternoon. 
I don't want to store it away so I've spent this morning shuffling to create a build space without stopping my Rotterdam Build. I gained more than a metre of worktop cheers
