All in, it really wasn't that big. The models is about 24" long and the overall base is 30". Compared to my 1/250 Musashi or 1/200 Bismarck, the 1/350 Prinz Eugen is pretty easy to work with.
That said, I do have to wait for nice weather outside because even though I have a dedicated studio with a large twin fan exhaust paint booth, my studio is connected to the attic... The attic with no insulation (the house was built in 1878).
It's never actually reached freezing in there (a blessing since it would ruin all my paint), but it has definitely gone into the low 40s Farenheit (the room laughs at heaters). Because of that, Winter is spent on construction only while I wait for warmer weather so I can get back into my studio to paint.
