    I am putting the finishing touches on a garage/hangar bay for photo backdrops. Sometimes its nece to see the figs in a place rather than just in a space. I put a chot of my still not finished hardhead in just so you can see how it fits with a fig. what do you think?

    That's really cool. I think it might look even better with some props in the background (small metal crates, tools, a terminal, that sort of stuff)

    I'm sure I will add to it as parts become available. Good eye on the joe base thing.

    That's very cool! I have been entertaining the idea of making dioramas to go with a couple of my Figure. I do believe it adds another dimension, and may help put a custom into a certain context!:thumbs2:

    Ha! I had a split second of weirdness before I recognized where the parts came from. Man, it's been a long time since I saw my old GI Joe battle base... it brings back memories. Looks like you cannibalized TWO of them for this. :)

    I won one with extra parts on Ebay a year or two back with the intent of making a backdrop. I still have the center section, one lift back and the helipad,

    What do I think? FULL of WIN.

    This looks great, and I can't wait to see all of the projects you'll use with it as well as the many other Radicons' projects that may be inspired by it.

    Very nice. A diffrent background from time to time is good. For now mine are various art paper and foam blocks. I have thought of making diffrent backdrops but have not come up with anything I like so far.

    Good work keep it up.
