Designing a base can sometimes be tremendously easy. If you’re a regular follower you’ve probably noticed that my base styles range from the most simple circle and rod, to the elaborate Death Star tiles or even occasional tarmac section. This project will probably end up being the most design heavy base I’ll have done. The client and I discussed doing a blueprint style laser cutting/etching into blue plastic with some tech specs included.
Here’s what I came up with:Once I get this into the laser cutter, it will look more like this:I’m planning on using clear inserts to support the model, instead of the original plan to use magnets and clear rod. It’s a big piece of plastic, for sure since the actual length of model is represented in full on the base.
