PostPosted: Fri Jun 03, 2011 3:15 am    Post subject: My collection Reply with quote

I know this thread has been dead for several years but I've been inspired by offworld66's collection since I saw it when I first started participating on this site. The photos of his collection looked like they could have been on the top of an upright piano but they were actually just on top a desk, and he manipulated the sense of depth by careful placement of the props.

I've been collecting BR props for a few years now, but haven't had any decent place to display them. Then a few months back I came across this thread again and an idea came to me. I don't have a desk sitting around that I can array all my props on, nor do I have a real or dead upright piano that I can use to display my collection either. But I DO have a faux fireplace with a mantle that didn't have much on it, and on closer inspection it was almost identical in depth and width to that of an upright piano top. So I set about placing my props on it, and after a number of months of playing around with it, here are the results. Enjoy!

Excellent collection, very cool indeed Cool ...but for one little detail: the cork in the whisky bottle (yep, that old question) unless it's real whisky in there, then I'll shut up

Shut up joberg... Wink it really is whiskey in the bottle. The cork stopper was from a bottle of Glenrothes single malt, and the cap I used was from a bottle of Fris vodka. Unfortunately they don't make that cap anymore (it's pressed aluminium over plastic) so on my other bottle I'm going to have to use the Finlandia vodka plastic cap.

Thanks for your comments!

Great job SCOFFMAN and thanks for your comments, i had a ball putting all that together, might try and do another one since i got the Dazor lamp
and a couple of other things since then.

You should look into getting some acrylic sheets and make a clearbox or a box without a back and base to protect the whole display.

PS, i just remembered i was going to get you some pics of my Deckard pants, will get on to it.

Thanks guys! I'd thought about protecting my display somehow (originally I was thinking of building a glass cube on top of a wooden base covered with Ennis House tiles to display my collection & additional blasters when I get them finished, and I even found all the parts necessary that they use for glass shelves and displays in department stores) but to me part of creating a display like this was to present it in as a 'realistic' setting as possible. Even though everything is obviously arranged, and since it's not actually on top of a piano the sheet music standing upright makes no sense and as well for the magazines & newspaper. For the rest of it I tried to give it a feeling of stuff randomly placed on top of the mantelpiece. To cover it with some sort of protective housing in my opinion would detract from the "realism" of the display. I hope you understand my meaning. Obviously if it was just stuff thrown on top of a mantelpiece (in place of a piano top or coffee table) the magazines, sheet music and newspaper would just be buried under other objects, and it would probably be even more cluttered than my display is (hey, you should see my billiards table!) So I'd actually rather it gather a layer of dust and look more "real" than stick it under some sort of plastic cover. That's just my opinion. Most of it is stuff that can be dusted anyway!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm also planning to create a BR themed display. Not sure I'll be able to recreate anything like these fabulous examples, but I was thinking a good place to start might be the photos (Zhora, Zhora's apartment, the old black and white pics etc).

Does anyone know where I could source the pics and print some off?

Cheers.
