    Jup. I guess you could even add a motor if you have enough time on your hands.

    Btw if anyone has ideas for a base design, I'd be eager to hear them at this stage. :top:

    I would say a rectangle would be most appropriate,the contour that follows the main body of the ship...something similar like that wooden board we see in the pictures.Sober & classy and it will look perfect among your other ships with similar shapes. :top:
    And of course you can't break continuity now which means a mirrored,black base. ;)

    I'm beginning to familiarize with your arguments, though the undoubtedly more complex original base design as envisaged by the model creator is still tempting:

    But, yes, probably too big of a distraction from the model itself and also an unspeakable space hog.

    On another note, I was thinking about adding a slight tilt so as to give it a little more dynamism instead of that ship-on-a-stick look but, upon taking a second look at the steel armature, straight is probably the only reliable way to support the enormous weight.

    I agree Lars,this would be a distraction from that awesome ship itself.
    Personally I'd also prefer the rectangular base positioned lenghtwise as in the WIP pictures...looks better imho.
