17This is a custom-made base and will take 3-5 days to create, depending on the humidity. After you order, I will contact you to get the specifics on how you would like it created.
The base can be covered with grass, sand, or a combination of the two. It’s a good fit for most 1:32 scale models, like Breyer Stablemates, and without a fence would work for smaller scales.
It’s is too small to be used for photo showing and is meant for display purposes only. (Note: The horses and fences shown are not included, this listing is only for one custom base.)
The base is 5.25 inches long and 3.25 inches wide, at the widest points. The terrain-covered area will be roughly 4.5 by 2.5 and this base can take Template A post holes.
The wooden base will be sanded, painted black and green, finished in a glossy-ish sealer, and then covered in your choice of model train grass and sand. The terrain is attached in multiple layers with a mixture of water and Elmer’s wood glue and will go through several tap and wind tests to make sure it’s pretty sturdy.
An additional bag of grass (and/or sand) is included in case the base is ever damaged. The terrain can be attached with a mixture of water and Elmer’s glue. Instructions on how to repair the base and how it was made can be found here.
The base will ship in a handmade cardstock box that can be used for storage. The box has two flaps that can be curled to hold the base securely and release with pull tabs.
Materials used: Artminds Wooden plaque, Green and Black acrylic craft paints, Krylon matte sealer, wood glue, train grass mix (Woodland Scenics, T45 Fine Turf Green Grass and, T46 Fine Turf Weeds).
