Here's another of my larger sized, free-standing, billboards, probably not suitable for the roof-tops of buildings.
The construction of this and all the other ones I've made follow the same lines, namely coffee-stirrers, either glued together in strips of four or used singly for cross-braces.
Another pair of signs, the Hip Hop one is probably my least favourite. The Fisher-Price billboard has a lolly-stick glued to the bottom of the rear supports, this was for the extra weight to keep it stable.
All the smaller boards have a tendency to easily topple forward, but that shouldn't be a problem when they're butted up against the parapet of a building roof.
Finally here's a couple of photographs of posters that I haven't turned into billboards.
The first two have a backing and surround, whilst the last two are merely prints.
I don't think I'll be rushing to do any more Billboards in the near future, twelve (with a potential for sixteen) is more than enough.
Laslty let me welcome my latest followers "Clearco Miniatures" (you can find their site here - it's well worth a visit) and Alvaro, here's hoping you guys find something of interest here. If I've missed any new followers. sorry, (I blame the drugs)
That's it for this week, as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
