My BMF BMF display
« on: December 28, 2010, 10:27 PM »
For my birthday and Christmas this year, my uncle helped me build a display case/functional table for my new BMF toy. By "helped", I mean he did most of the work. I did a bit of drilling and measuring. He is truly phenomenal at building stuff, so I'm very pleased with how this big mutha-******* Big Millenium Falcon (BMF BMF) display turned out. Here are some WIP pics. Tomorrow I prime the pieces, and later on I will paint it black and place a mirror on the bottom of the case.

Day 1: top portion, minus side plexi-glass and lights









Day 2: finished top portion, added bottom portion (removable legs, allowing the top portion to be a standalone coffee table or a heightened display), added LED lights in each corner

Wow!  Looks great, although I kinda like to be able to open mine up from time to time.

Well, the top is removable (there's actually a piano hinge that I have to attach), so it isn't very hard to play with reconfigure the toy. Thanks for the comments guys, and here are some finished pics... do note that the top of the display is missing.

That's fantastic, especially with the lighting built into it.   8)
