This 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 1:32 scale models (Breyer Stablemates) but could work all the way up to 1:12 (Classic) foals.
This base is large enough to be used for photo showing, but probably won’t fit well on a bookcase. (Note: The horses and fences shown are not included, this listing is for one grass base.)
The base is 9 inches long and 7 inches wide, at the widest points. The terrain-covered area will be roughly 8.75 by 6.75 and both Template A and Template B post holes will fit. I’d recommend getting both sets for more flexibility in fence choice.
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 cardboard box with a built-in jig that can be used for storage (as long as you open the box carefully).
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).
