Coastal kits ground blur bases

Recommended Posts

I'll be building some more in flight builds soon and wanted a more dynamic look.  I just received the ground blur base from Coastal Kits and how cool is this thing? To me it really adds life to the model.  I haven't finalized the base yet but in very very happy with what I received.

Those are great, I have been looking at them for about a year, but in the past they didn’t have those big enough for 1/32.

Easy enough to do.

I googled 'English countryside aerial view' , got a file , brought it into Corel and literally hit blur!

Printed onto vehicle wrap material and stretched over the base:

...well , maybe not that easy to do...

They have some very cool bases, including carrier decks, grass and tarmac, and in 1/32 too. I follow them on ebay FWIW.

The prop was the best alternative I could come up with after looking at all of the available ways to go about it. The display gets a lot of double takes at shows as guys take a second look thinking the prop IS spinning!

 The only other alternative was to just have the spinner.

I do agree with you though , the prop is the focal point and will make or break the display.

Full spinner paper template:

Clear blade selection of diff widths:

Not an easy choice with the alternatives available. The solid renditions are not realistic enough , that's why I did it a few diff ways to figure it out.
