Hi there,

I'm really intrigued by D-bases and have an interest in building them.

I have learnt a few principles such as the slope principle (which I have loads of Qs abt), black and sliver stripings, and stepping.

I know there's probably tons more to learn. So what is the most comprehensive book or tape I could purchase to make a 30cm deep base look like 10 cms.

By the way the base that I love the most is DC's snow base - not sure at all how it works - but I think its amazing!

MAny thanks

Rand Woodbury's Base Book is probably one of, if not the most comprehensive book about bases...makes sense, doesn't it?

Look at Copperfield's upright Asrah also... Similar design of the base...

But DC's base designs are usually "long/lengthy" which is great for thinness but might be a little bit of a challenge for storage and transport... Unless of course you've got the budget and infrastucture already...

Imho... Smile

Paul Osboune has a nice easy bas design in his first book which still works for me, but for "invisibility" I will agree with the Rand Woodburry design
