Howdy all..

Just got myself an early xmas present.. and added a place for it in my hobby room, (as some know its a 3 foot by 4 foot closet)

Its the Kindle Fire color android Tablet.

now while I'm working, I can watch History's greatest Tank battles through netflix, listen to some of my audio books, or look up that obscure bit of info on the site, while the wife is tying up the computer... oh and play games too.. but not while model building LOL..

and yes it will not be in there while i'm using the airbrush..

photo was taken from my standard seated position, so the 7" screen is a good size for watching video.. LOL

I Know its not really a modeling tool, But I think it will make my modeling experience more enjoyable..

Have a small plastic bag that you can pull over the top when you are spraying. I do this for my 9" laptop and camera. Keeps them clean and avoids dust getting inside them.

Acer A500 tablet here. Also useful as a digital camera with direct storage to the NAS.

Got the hand-me-down TV tuned to The Military Channel right there. I cover it with plastic if I'm airbrushing. Plenty of room for the laptop as well in case I need to get on the net.
