Finishing the base and adding the wall for the scenery outline.

Continuing from the last blog where I ran out of duct tape.


The next process is basic repeat the last few steps over and over until you have connected six boxes such as the pictures below

From the top
And from the bottom 


Next we will be adding the scenery outline wall to the base.


Next let's cut up some of our cardboard boxes into a few sheets so we use them for our wall like so.

Once you've got a few pieces of cardboard like the above picture it's time to break out the legendary ductape and get to strapping it to the base!  Remember it has to be sturdy we'll be adding an inner wall later once we cut out the outline.

 Different side views of the wall.
 And another

Remember a secure base is a happy base.  In the event you have to move this thing, which is highly likely, you'll want something that won't give and crack your environment.

Do this around the entire base until you have something like what is below.

  9. I would've never though to use already built boxes for the base. I probably would've over complicated the matter and failed miserably! Lol
