When we look at a sand table model, we will look at the structure of the sand table as a whole. The deficiencies in each place will affect the overall effect. Just like a bucket holding water, only when the height of each board is the same can it be filled with water. If one of the boards is short, it will affect the water holding capacity of the whole bucket.
The same is true for the production of chassis. If the production of chassis is not good, no matter how well other parts are done, the overall effect will also be affected. Next, we will introduce the chassis in the building model.
We often see building models, but what material is the chassis made of? Have you noticed? You must say it's wood or plastic. In fact, you're half right.
The chassis of building model is usually made of PS board, KT board and wooden chassis, as well as natural stone, glass, gypsum, etc. PS (polystyrene board) and KT board have the advantages of light texture, good willfulness and no deformation. They are good materials for ordinary paper models. However, the section of the finished PS board and KT board is difficult to smooth, so it needs to be edge sealed with thick cardboard, corrugated paper or other decorative profiles to keep the appearance clean and bright.
Chassis is an important part of building model, which supports the main model. Flat, stable and wide are the basic principles for the production of the model chassis. In the specific production, the overall style of the building model, production cost and other factors should be considered. The wooden chassis has a thick texture. Generally, the original wood grain will be retained or the thin wood decorative board will be nailed on the surface. The decorative style should be set off with the main body of the building model. The edges of the board must still be nailed or pasted with decorative edges to avoid cracking at the edges and corners of the chassis.
No matter which material is selected, it is to make the chassis of the building model play a decorative effect and set off the whole sand table model. A good chassis will not only make the whole sand table model look tall, but also add icing on the cake to the whole sand table.
