Second, "Time", I try to give myself all the time I need so as not to be rushed. This is extremely important. If you don't have enough time you will surely loose your focus, break a smooth routine and end with a bike half done. No doubt with an attitude that you wasted a great deal of time and you know your right you should have just jumped on that puppy and took off. Give yourself all the time you need and your whole world will turn easier. And when you do clean it your "good attitude" will go the distance. When you're done all that work will leave you with a sense that it wasn't so hard to do and doing it again won't be so bad. And don't forget to take breaks frequently, drink a little work a little, drink a little work a little you'll be amazed how quickly you get finished and how much better you'll feel.
A complete hardware store or tool store can indeed make life a whole lot easier. If you are a do-it-yourself enthusiast then you will surely love the idea of living near a hardware store that sells almost everything from materials to different kinds of tools. However, brand new tools can be a little bit expensive and this may contribute to you blowing your budget. As a solution, you then look for discount retail stores. These stores sell quality tools at a much cheaper price. One popular discount retail store is Harbor Freight. This company started by buying and selling damaged freight goods. With the help of telephone sales representatives, the company began to expand.
I am not sure what scale architectural models are build to, but 1:200 does not equate to inches very well. 1/48th works out to 1/4-inch equals 1 foot, and 1/72 equal 1/6 to one foot. The scale should be divisible by 12 (i.e. 1/144th scale would be 144 divided by 12 which gives 1/12 of an inch equals one foot). You could always go with 1/192 (1/16 of an inch equals one foot), which is a popular scale for ship models. Another choice would be use metric where 1/200th would work fine.
You do not have to have a compressor, some people prefer to use a CO2 bottle, but that seems somewhat expensive. Some of the discount tool companies (like Harbor Freight) stock inexpensive compressors. Probably the most import thing to a good finish is good surface preparation. In other words a good clean. Smooth surface. As I have gotten older I have developed a tendency to prime the surface and after that dries well to sand it with very fine grit paper. Try 3200, 2500, in that range.
Router: 1 1/2 to 2 HP find a good used one, unless it's been dropped and kicked around a lot a good router lasts a long time, two things to look for first brushes that can still be bought and easily changed and two both a 1/4 and 1/2 inch Collete. a router that uses only a 1/4 Collete is of very limited use. if you can a new router of good quality can be bought for $100.00 and you really don't need a plunge router ( but they are nice ).
Kitchen and bathroom cabinets that have been purchased from major production outlets ship boxed. They tend not to be cut like someone was chewing their way out, like some washer, dryer and water heater boxes are, as the heavy appliances are maneuvered out of their boxes and into place. Keeping an eye out on a tract or two of new houses is key to discovering box days.
