    I went back to the drawing board, I wanted to make one that I could "mount" to the back of my detolf that would fill the space of one shelf. Hard to get things done with my 18month and 3 month old children, so it might take some time.
    Here it is, Finished!!

    Hi All,
    I've been putting together a backdrop/background made from styrene.
    Ever since I saw Crimson Primus' I knew I needed one. Will post pictures as it is updated.

    the orange is really bright in direct light, it looks perfect in pictures though.

    I may apply a wash to fill in the lines
    Well as I was gluing the the autobot symbol to the back drop I ran into a few problems and smeared the glue. Ugh. I'm going to start a new one but size it to fit inside a detolf and thicken the autobot symbol
