The white looks really good, Ken's skin too. Tape on Ken's base is a nice touch, adds a bit of colour as well. Did you print that yourself or is that something you bought?

If I got the colour order wrong for the German flag please let me know. More pics etc tomorrow.
Way ahead of you. I've even sketched out the thing and I think this kind of thing might go best with it. I think a bit of rubber tape on them could offer extra grip, though. I've my eye on some neoprene tape on ebay, though 3mm might be too thick and I didn't find a better alternative - I can only put up with ebay's spastic fits for so long. Any handy products that someone can suggest in the meantime would be greatly appreciated.Don't know if you'd really need more grip. (Unless you'll use them in combination with something like foils/films for special effects. But then you probably don't need homemade filters...)
I think plasticard glued to wood board would be more practical than foamboard, even if it doesn't cover the side neatly or completely. And having a Dad who works in a hardware shop is useful at times.More practical and cheaper too (especially if you have to replace it later on with a new sheet. Hm, maybe use velcro tape instead of glue, then replacing the plasticard once it's scratched would be quite easy.) Thinking about the velcro tape made me realize that if you'd laminate different backdrops onto thinish wood and added velcro tape to the backsides you wouldn't need clamps/ clips. A bit more effort and possibly more expensive though.
If you use wood for the 'frame', maybe you could buy some small hinges. That way you should be able to fold the construction. You have to decide on the thickness of the foamboard/wood construction first though and probably visiting you local diy before you start constructing your new lightbox wouldn't be a bad idea neither.
Now I'm thinking of making a deluxe folding DM-screen model based on Maplin's lightbox, but I'm not sure how to go about it. First thoughts were to go with reflective sides again - two pieces of foamboard on thin wood, maybe.
[Not so far. It's the DeviantArt effect. Or it might be, if he throws a wobbly at any constructive criticism. Should I find out?
Definitely would make a 'nice' diorama. She'd need two or three really nasty looking large dogs on chains, I guess the Heresy hellhounds would work well.Imagine some old crone yelling 'You grated pig, I shall feed your rind to the hounds'Oddly enough, I can imagine that. All too clearly. I might even do a diorama...
I must also echo a strong appreciation for Bakewell Tarts and those Tunnocks Caramel wafers....in fact I really like the pink ones you get in tins of assorted biscuits too.I quite like those Tunnocks Marshmallow Snowball things. Never tried the Caramel wafers. Must do that sometime.
Don't mean to burst the guys bubble, but...I have to agree. The stuff in that thread looks like someone should practice a lot more before considering molding/casting/selling. Besides that I'm not so sure adding plastic bits is a good idea, if you plan to have something cast.
Maybe learn to sculpt before he goes into production - IMHO he's on a hiding to nowhere.
A case of Emperor's new clothes, I'm afraid.
Who was it who recently did that fantastic dragon skull/head
