Plaques

It’s that time of the year again, when I have to find wooden plaques to use as bases. When I started out, I used the simplest form of wooden base from trophy shops, which are nicely finished and cheap. You have to find a shop that will sell the plaques without engraving service or any adornments, and you can get 4″x6″ or 5″x7″ finished plaques at less than $3-4 apiece. I usually buy lots of 10-15 and it lasts for years, especially since I cease using them for my more recent kits with diorama bases. But now I’m almost out, and I needed a few for my Macross planes, so the hunt begins…

  1. Yeah, his engraved bases are very nice. I wonder though whether his “stock” bases are in the price range ($3-4) I’m looking for. I found a place selling 4″x6″ for 3.95 each, though it looks like it only has one type of finish.
