HobbyZone Modular Workshop System OM10 Big Showcase Module Review
|Date of Review||March 2016||Manufacturer||HobbyZone|
|Subject||OM10 Big Showcase Module||Part Number||OM10|
|Pros||Precision cut wood and plexiglass door||Cons||See text|
This is the OM10 Big Showcase module and the only double-height module currently in their modular system. This module is roughly 12 inches wide, 12 inches high and 6 inches deep with a clear plexiglass door that is hinged from the top about an inch below the top edge. To open, press the top of the door and grab the lower edge as it extends out. Inside is a single adjustable height shelf which is about three inches wide.
I used Gorilla non-foaming Wood Glue (white glue) to assemble the box and I followed the instructions with no problems. When all was together, I used clamps to keep everything tight while the glue dried. While these parts fit tightly dry, they need a little help when glue is introduced into the joints. One reader pointed out that he preferred finishing nails to clamps to hold the assemblies together while the glue dries - whatever works best for you.
You can see in this image the adjustable height shelf is wide enough for a 1/35 Jeep in progress while the bottom holds subassemblies out of my 1/48 MiG-31 build for safe keeping while I continue working on the benchtop.
If you don't need a taller showcase module, HobbyZone also produces the OM09 Showcase module which is the same height as all of the other storage modules (half the height of this one).
You can see this and other modules at the HobbyZone website ( www.hobbyzone.biz) and on their eBay Store. Stay tuned as we build up other modules and see what we can do with them to organize the bench!
