The “sandwich” bases are highly customizable display bases with tons of potential.
Each piece is custom cut from 1/8 inch acrylic, 7.5 by 5.5 inches, and has a pre-cut hole for the Action Base 4 and 5 arms. When you combine two pieces together you get a thick base that will hold nearly every kit you could throw at it. If the Action Base stands could hold up a PG kit then the base could support it too!
To put the stand together you need at least two pieces and four standoffs. You can get standoffs from pretty much anywhere as long as the screw is no less than 1/2 inches in diameter.
Personally I like to use these thick guys available both in Black and Silver from Amazon. I’ve also used these shiny gold ones.
Here’s where things get fun, because they’re available in nearly every colour of acrylic I can get my hands on, you can mix and match to customize the base to fit the look of your kit.
Clear with black base? Clear and translucent red? Mirror and fluorescent green? So many combinations.
But wait, it gets even better! Since it’s two pieces of material sandwiched together, you can come up with a custom design, print it out on a piece of paper, and put it in the middle. If your kit has a custom theme, custom name, or custom paint scheme, you can easily match the look of the base to your kit.
These bases come in as many different colour combinations as I could possibly manage. When checking out make sure that at least two piece are in your cart per base. A single piece might be good for a 1/144 scale kit, but I’m worried it might sag over time.
