Show off your spaceship miniatures, or as a unique gift to a Star Wars fan.
The idea is to show off your collection in the same was as a classic butterfly collection.

Step 1: The material

- "Ribba", a frame sold by IKEA
- Two miniatures
- Black paper, scissor
- Distance and screws
Nice! To add to the &quot;butterfly collection&quot; authenticity, I would put pins in them on the &quot;wings.&quot; Now, perhaps not actually pin through them, but a dab of crazy glue and a pin cut in half.<br><br>It would make it look like you caught them in the wild, and &quot;pinned&quot; them like a butterfly.
That's a great idea. Very creative!
This is great! It reminds me of an amazing series of photographs that conceptual artists Max Becher and Andrea Robbins did back in 2002. They paired an original Star Wars figurine with a recent one in a double portrait of each character from the films. They're funny and beautiful and really highlight the cultural changes between 1979 and now.<br/><br/>You can see them here (unfortunately they're small, but you get the idea): <br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://robbecher.www4.50megs.com/Figures.html">http://robbecher.www4.50megs.com/Figures.html</a><br/>
went to link....unable to find what you were talking about
It's really nice. But today I in brandbagsales.com bought a bag. Pretty cheap
Nice! That might be something good to do with my extras - I ended up mounting all mine to an angled board: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://flickr.com/photos/dalangalma/sets/961686/">http://flickr.com/photos/dalangalma/sets/961686/</a><br/>
A good shadow box and maybe a good plague to tell observers what they are looking at would really look nice. Remember when we were kids, some of us had to collect butterfly's and put them into shadow boxes with labels? This project is a great idea and looks terrific. Maybe we'll see a darth vader in the cupboard later?
The inspiration for this box was in fact butterfly collection. I have intended to add some retro-looking plaque under each. For instance "Fighterus Ywingus" or something similar :-)
Very kewl! I love it and so will my paper modeling group. Clik on my name and it will take you to the link. Thousands of free models to download. All skill levels. I think this can be made from that 1/4 in office board and transparent sheets. And would be lighter than wood!
this just screams GEEK im sorry i woundt put this anywhere in my house even though i own a few of these
thats why you don't have a house... I'd do it. but I also have motherboards as art so... its a little bias
That type of picture frame is called a shadow box. You can find them everywhere, not just Ikea. I do like how you took something cheap and plastic and made it look kinda classy by mounting it like a "butterfly" collection.
Good tutorial with simple steps. I think the word you are looking for is "Spacers" not distances.
Awesome ! Probably my next room deco !
Linke the idea... I'm not myself a starwar fan but could find something nice to put in instead... Cool !
