I've completed two models recently, an early Cylon Raider and a Colonial Viper Mk II. They're wired for lighting. what I'm looking for is idea's for the bases. I have a Radio Shack plastic project box that i used to make a base for another model, but can't find them anymore and would like to try something different.
Does anyone have any idea's for a base that i can use?

I use deep picture frames upside down, you can hide the electrics inside and place a piece of plastic card over the top and job done....

If im doing lighting I find it easier to just build a base out of bass wood to house my switches, batteries, etc..bass wood is readily available at craft and hobby shops and its easy to cut with simple hand tools a sharp x-acto, razor saw, clamps, wood glue, maybe some small nails or brads depending on how rigid you need it to be, is all you need. Its fun too...

I've used a piece of MDF painted black. I like a simple black base.
