Finds Display

Post by ashjacko » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:57 pm

Hi all!

I have made a display for my first military badge that I have found as it is one of my favourite finds, I am yet to get a brass plaque for the base.

I have one of these exact displays for a signed snooker ball so did the same for this, well I say I but what I mean is my father in law made the base as he's a boat builder and then I bought the purspex cube off ebay.

I used red as the cloth colour as it is the colours of The Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry.

Thanks for looking.

Nicely done and a great talking point, which could lead to permissions.
Thanks for showing. ::g

Very well done, so much better than being stuck in a drawer.

Brilliant Idea well done mate! I've planned to mount my stuff on a perspex base cube, if that makes sense?

Alas, I am yet to find something worth displaying!


P.s. I've always wanted to be a boatbuilder!
