Well having finished my other group build entry the P-40 it was time to crack on with building a display base for the Spitfire.

It's the first time I have tried to build a base like this, main components will be a cheap photo frame, some regular decorating filler, various paints and some scatter sand.

20191213_131151.jpg  cheapish filler from a discount shop.

Firstly I removed the stand from the back of the picture frame before covering the photo frame glass with a thin layer of filler.
I thought that leaving the glass would prevent any potential warping that might occur if I replaced the glass with wood.

I smoothed out the filler with a spatula into a semi flat desert type landscape but before it was completely dry I covered it with cling film and used the Spitfire to run a few shallow wheel ruts across it.
It was then put on one side to dry completely.

After a few days of drying I gave it a coat of Black Stynlrez primer.

I will leave this to dry over the weekend before adding some sandy, buff colour paint and sand.

Another update soon.

Thanks for looking [thumb]

Geoff.

Great beginning to a base. I actually never thought of cling wrap on a wet surface and rolling a model vehicle on it! Nice tip!!
