"If you want to make an apple pie, you must first invent the universe" - Carl Sagan
I took inspiration from several different posts on how to build a light-box:
- 1 12x12x8 box from the Post Office
- Clear tape
- Wax Paper
- Aleene's Tacky Glue
- Razor Knife
- White paper
- Background printed from Corvus Miniatures
Here's a few pics of the process:
I glued the pieces I cut out of the box onto the flaps to hold them in place and add strength/stability. The tinfoil is all glued shiny side down. Wax paper was cut to fit and glued down on the outside of the 'windows' so I can use multiple lamps - but with the tinfoil on the front/sides I can get away with one bright lamp if need be. Below is a pic taken of the setup used to take the pic up top of the post.
At any rate - took me about two hours to do, and I'm looking forward to taking pics of my painted guys now. One procrastination barrier - eliminated!
Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with my latest terrain find: a G scale trestle bridge...
Yup - that's an 18" ruler for scale.. it's about 46 inches long. Big enough to fit a Land Raider or Tervigon...
