First, cut your CD. Got to thank Tony for this simple solution. Cut it in water. That's it. Why a CD? Cheap and don't warp.
Here's my first trial with a fun boat from 99p Stores. Now you must let each stage dry thoroughly.
The opposite quarter used neat PVA in one thick coat. Although you cannot see the difference, it does make a very good seal to the vehicle.
Having researched the web, I had considered using 2 part epoxy glue but I'm happy with this cheap method.
This Disney junk is a sea going craft so the water's nice and blue. Alright I know water isn't blue, but it's supposed to be.
These are my small collection from The Scene with “mucky” river bases.
We had trouble with OGAM, as I hadn't foreseen the need for flying stands. Plus, there are SF infantry who can fly such as Daleks, heavy UNSC, and Vespids.
This was my first trial with these pots available from most UK cheap shops.
Fill the base with sand/PVA mix, a bit of foam on top for non-slip and a UK 2p coin on the base.
This is my first SF production run. Now if we're at a level where troops go flying around, we are talking happy to drop nuke land, so any real estate is going to look a bit fried. Made as above but I trimmed the lid down (careful!), added a UK 1p inside, black paint to the inside and outside of the lid, then drybrushed white. I had considered adding one of those nice sparkly stick-on gems to the inside, but trying to get them level proved impossible.
Movement stand. CD, foam cover with positions carved out but not removed. Then decorated and once nearly dry the holes removed and the no-more-nails spread around. As I use a standard – cd's and 2p size holes, its easy to turn this into a rubble base.
Spare cd rubble is re-used, scraped back it gives a nice industrial/glassy look.
2 squads of Imperials pass over their section and platoon HW Daleks.
