Building our model for the fair…

Well it is that time of year again and we are just starting our fair projects at home. Unfortunately we live in a 3rd floor apartment, which makes painting both inside and outside difficult. To minimize fumes and mess I began to look for options for building a miniature spray booth. I am not endorsing either of these, because I have not completed it yet, but I found 2 sets of instructions for completing this project.

It looks like the materials I will need to complete this project are

1)      Plastic Storage Crate or Similar Size Cardboard Box depending on which set of instructions you choose..mine will depend on whichever box I can find.

2)      An extractor fan – the second set of instructions uses the exhaust hood from a stove. This one seems simplest.

3)      Flexible hose – like for a dryer vent

  • Full instructions are available on the individual pages.

This second set also includes some great ideas for cleaning, painting, and preparing your model. Once we get started I will share our photos.hood
