A platform for presentation and photography of small scale LEGO vehicles.
The idea was a platform for the presentation of my 4-wide vehicles, especially to take photos from different angles without changing position or zoom factor of the camera. I started with a square platform based on a 16×16 base plate, but the platform was a little small to get a reflection of the whole car on the platform. Black was the best colour to get a cool reflection.
The ideal form would be a circle. An octagon formed by four 10×10 plates with 45 deg cutout was already getting close. A circle formed by 16 round 1×1 tiles (representing spots in the floor) added some extra coolness.
In the center of the platform there is a little turntable to change the angle of the car in front of the camera without “moving” the car itself:
Transparent plates, tiles and jumper plates are used to fix the car on the turntable.
