    Maybe its not really a custom but o well :p 


    What i did was using mechanical chain plates to create a nice and big display for hercules.

    Sets: 004/006/007/009.

    I added the LED lights myself. DIDNT make them! just to be clear. i used some christmas lights. The only thing i needed to do is drill some holes in the plates.
    Needed to drill 5.5mm holes. After that i plugged the leds in :p 

    need to do 1 thing and thats cover the left-over leds. gonna use some blacktape. still need to buy it :( 

    Its 49cm high, 45cm wide, 30cm length

    so.. thats it :p  enjoy the photos

    Dont sell yourself short,this is a custom. Nice work on the lights man. It dose wonders to make the photos look "real". I wish I had the money to get a bunch of these chain bases.

    Really nice man! That's a custom bro', you put the time in to make something normal that much better, you've changed it and made it a display piece all in it's own. Congrats man, and thanks for showing what you did as well. Now I'm going to go buy some of these bases and copy the living hell out of this! Hope you don't mind of course:)  Cheers man!

    bought some black tape so the extra LED's are now covered so i dont have light on the backside or on the sides. so every light you see will be in the display. looks much better now!

    i have some more photo's here:
