The folks at Hobbyworld have launched a new series of display bases which are rather impressive. Other products typically provide a scene printed on some form of paper or cardstock and leave you with the task of mounting the sheet onto some form of base material. In their 'Quicksandplinth' series, Hobbyworld provides that scene pre-mounted/printed on a 1/4 inch (3mm) thich PVC sheet. The scene is ready to go right out of the envelope.
In this case, Hobbyworld has a cobblestone base on an 8.2" x 5.8" (210mm x 148mm) PVC sheet and you can select the plain cobblestone base or one with a ghosted image of the US, British, Soviet, French, Italian, Japanese, Nazi Germany, Spanish National or Spanish Republic flags overlaid on one end. You see one of my 1/35 scale Jeeps that is awaiting restoration posed on this base for perspective. They also have these display bases in approximately 1/4 the size of this one for 1/72 scale models.
Hobbyworld has quite a few other subjects available in their AFV series as well as a variety of other subjects and scales in their aircraft, sci fi/fantasy, and automotive categories.
If you are looking for a turnkey solution for displaying your models, Hobbyworld has come up with a very nice solution!
These display bases are available directly from the Hobbyworld website.
My sincere thanks to Hobbyworld for this review sample!
