  1. I too have taken partially assembled kits and done things like gluing, seam work, scribing, etc. - no paint at all. I think the OP probably has more options than he thinks. I have also had separation anxiety over being away from my "home bench", but once I got something to work on it was not that bad. Just be glad you aren't moving.
