I’ve finally finished putting together my large Lego Minifig display! Wooohooo!
Like my previous attempts using Ikea Ribba frames:
*) I glued and pin-fixed some pine strip wood for the shelves and sprayed them up black to match the frame.
*) Glued in the minifig bases.
So this left me in a quandary regarding the background picture! What could I use to set off my Star Wars Minifigs!?
With mounted card as my canvas, I used several colours of gloss spray paint and some plant pots to create a galaxy scene with gas giant planets, stars and a nebula. I’m quite chuffed with it!!!
So here you are, the finished article.
Ikea Ribba frames are the preferred choice for most Lego minifig display frame ideas; however the new Gunnabo frames are also good for a hack.
I used panel pins to pop in some strip wood and spray painted the inner frame, just as I did with the Ribba frames.
As you can see, I decided to make a mini feature using Indian Minifigs, you know, because I’m a bit of a Joe.
Do you like my colouring-in background? 😉
I’m particularly pleased to give my Sikh minifig a beard using a Father Christmas piece left over from my Lego Advent Calendar.
The completed frame goes quite nicely with the Ribba doesn’t it?
