Diorama base edge finishing....
Posted 11 August 2012 - 11:26 PM
Cruised into Lowe's in search of either some thin formica (counter top material), or some type of flexible trim from the millwork dept. As luck would have it, had to pass through the flooring material area & spied several huge rolls of thin (cheapo) vinyl tile.....found a marbled pattern that I figured would look ok....scored a 4" X 160" slice for next to nothing......got back home....made the measurements & cuts....(measure 3 times, cut once)...applied with 'Liquid Nail'.
This material works easily & with a careful touch of an Exacto, you can follow pretty much any contour.

Perfect solution to the problem and a 'natural' in color and texture.
Diorama looks just awesome.

BTW, what paint did you use for the O.D.?

The OD is actually "Green Drab"..FS34086....MM#1787....very few drops of standard Olive Drab added to tone it down a bit.
Hope this helps....
