Where do you guys paint your models? Outside? In the garage? At your workbench? Paint booth? Bathtub? Somewhere else?

I just bought a new house and am finally moved in and my modeling supplies unpacked. I'm debating on where to setup for painting. I used to paint outside, but that wasn't good with the wind. I'm thinking garage for now, but not the cleanest place. Should I invest time/money in getting a paint booth? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Bathtub works good unless its one of the new plastic ones, damn that overspray stained it whoops. I use the garage now and just do a good sweep and someitmes spray it down to knock down the dust

Just spend around $100 in wood/nails and build yourself a small painting booth outside. You can put a battery powered suction fan at the top to keep the dust out. I actually plan on doing this once the weather cools down.

I either paint outside or find a big cardboard box to use as a painting booth.
