Default Advice....Museum?!?

I have an issue. I'm trying to make a museum scene for an upcoming dio. Anyone done this kind of thing before or have any advice or guidance on how to make this look good?

I have a ton of Ideas and have started the set, but I'm looking for any help that will make this better!

First, that is a great idea!

I would say you could use the bubbles from most figures as "Museum display cases." If the bubble is lying down, you could put almost anything "under glass."

Looking forward to it!

if you have access to lots of small cheap LED's or LED devices then you should try and put those in the glass cages, either at the top or bottom to light up what is being displayed

Cool Marbelesque

A bright white floor.. that looks marbelesque.. the bubbles from figures is a great idea for display cases.

Or a chess board, well to me that seems very museumish, checkered floor.

have you decided on which kind of museum you want it to be?
I can easily see a dinosaur skeleton hanging in the ceiling/standing on the floor.
Lots of small displays in glass boxes (history museum?/Asian sword museum?)
Or paintings on the wall, lit up with lights underneath or over.

Hmmm... I might try something like this some day soon

Frank, do you remember the 1st chapter of "Transformations"? I had spray painted a ton of saline cans (for contacts) to act as pillars. I always saw museums having a lot of pillars. Some have grand staircases, depending on the size (ala Matrix2's mansion set). Personally, I'd go for stark white walls and some sort of shiny, glossy floor. Maybe a chess board as was already mentioned.

Perhaps you need to watch Night In The Museum? Or the Mummy? :P

Do a search on this page for IMPERIAL COLUMN

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalo..._TERRAIN_7.html

I have two and plan on painting mine up soon and using them for a Cobra set. - Even though they are not in scale they are big enough.

Like so:


(threw the driver, Fred and trooper in there for scale purposes)
