Sometimes coolness can sway our opinion. In the case of reader Frank Kozik’s shop, two factors won us over. The first was his reassurance that his shop is much messier now than it was the day he completed it, when this picture was taken. As some of you know, we have a fondness for messy work areas, because it means work is getting done.

Take a look under the center of the workbench for the second reason we dig this shop. That, friends, is a Tiger tank, and it brings a smile to my face. If I knew nothing else about Frank, that alone would give me a good opinion of him. For more evidence of this shop’s sweetness, you need only look on top of the bench to find an AT-AT — might I add a hearty booyah?

This workshop clearly belongs to a man with class and discernment.

    hey Frank,

    I have all three of your poster books! Now that I see your new shop, you really are THE MAN.

    Question, are “vinyl” toys made out of PVC? You know that sh*t is killing us all.

  7. frank kozik says:

    yes, they are pure pvc and outgas huge amounts of solvents over time.

    an AT-AT is a huge armored walker used by the Empire to destroy small furry creatures and the occasional human Rebel fighter. That one is a Master replcas one I am customizing with a jillion little extra pirces to look like it was a WW2 german one…….

  12. Flea Bomb says:

    Frank, you should charge for shop tours. We’ll all line up!

    BTW, is there any movement in the industry to make vinyl toys out of a safer alternative?

    (remember tool kids out there, safety first: PVC + Flame = Dioxins)

    Good times!
