This listing is for two bases for 1:9 (Breyer Traditional) scale modular fencing. They are 3 inch circles (or partial circles) with inset paper clips that fit the holes in the bottom of the posts.
This is for folks who want to add a set of half-circle bases to their order instead of replacing the full-circles. Or, I suppose, for someone who just wants the bases to use for something else. (If you’d like extra bases in other scales, please drop me an email at custom_orders@Martha.net and I can make you a custom listing.)
You can find the additional fencing sections (endposts and posts with flush or inset rails) in my shop.
The bases are made of laser-cut plywood with an inset paperclip, which has been secured with super glue and wood putty. They are relatively sturdy, but the post may become a bit wiggly if you put too much pressure on them. (This won’t actually stop the bases from working, it just gets a little more challenging to put the pins in the holes).
The paperclip posts can be pushed through a train grass mat for a more realistic setup.
The bases are sanded, and painted brown. They have been coated with matte varnish so you can wipe them with a damp cloth, but you can’t soak them in water. They should hold up to basic wear and tear, but are not intended for children. This fencing is meant for adults (or young adults) who are using it for a display, Photo Show, or Live Show setups.
The bases in the photos are only examples, but I have built jigs and other tools that allow me to make sure all fence pieces are identical enough to be interchangeable. I do my best to make sure things are a consistant shape and fit together well, but these are handmade items so they will not be 100% identical.
These fences are made to order and depending on the amount ordered and my current wood stockpile, there may be a delay in construction. If you need a fence by a certain date, please contact me first to make sure I can fufill the order (custom_orders@Martha.net).
Otherwise the fence will take roughly a week to build, as both the glue/wood putty, paint, and sealer all need time to dry before shipping.
I am planning on offering DIY kits that are just the cut wood (no sanding or assembly) in the near future.
The wood is cut by hand and then sanded, so sizes are approximate.
The circular bases are 3 inches in diameter and the optional half-circle bases are 1 13/16th wide.
The circular bases extend 1 1/4 inches beyond the posts (the half-circle bases are roughly flush with the edge of the posts).
I do take custom orders, so please drop me a line at custom_orders@Martha.net if you’re looking for something specific!
