I'm in the final planning stages for displaying the MTB model.

 

I'm going to use an old plexiglass 5 sided case, from another model, for a dust cover.  I've made the wood base to fit both this model & the dust cover.  The base is stained & clear coated, and I'm waiting for it to dry. :sleeping:

 

To add a little more interest to the MTB display, I'm thinking of using a photo of the actual MTB's as a backdrop to the model.

 

During my MTB research on the Internet, I found a colour photo of a BPB MTB flotilla.  I've enlarged the photo to fit my plastic case.  Here's a couple of photos showing what it will look like as the backdrop;

... and cropped as it would look in the display case;

I like it, but I'd be interested in your thoughts.  What do you think?

 

Thanks!

:cheers:

Definitely works for me John. Sorry, been awol for a bit till I saw your Dog boat over at BM, & recalled I hadn't seen the end of this one, quite wonderful.

Steve.
