Post astroid backdrop Reply with quote
i decided to make an astroid backdrop for my 144th scale millennium falcon. this has been constructed from foam blocks that i bought from a florist, these blocks are a to cut and shape, perhaps a little to easy if you know what i mean. i then gave them a coat of tile grout to add some strength and soften the texture a little. i did prime the foam blocks with some matt black car primer paint to help witht he absorption rate of the tile grout.
