OK, so its not exactly Constable or Turner, but I'm pretty pleased with how this has turned out.
It is a backdrop to help with photographing my miniatures, particularly the 28mm ones. I think a different one would be needed for the 6mm napoleonics.
The whole thing is 6' x 2' and was constructed by recycling the very first game board I ever made. There is a frame of softwood covered with some hardboard held in place with panel pins. Some old shelf-brackets are screwed into the back to make sure it stays upright. As with most of by DIY there is an element of bodging but I think it will do the job ;-)
The painting was done mainly with some cheap tester posts of emulsion and some odds and ends knocking around from other projects so I think the whole thing cost around £7 with some green paints left over.
