When modelers get creative

Sometimes I think there's not a great deal of creativity in our hobby. Most of the time, there's only one "right" way to paint a model, at least if you want to be taken seriously by your peers. Sure, there's always that crazy guy who's willing to paint his Merkava pink and bedazzle it like a Southern lady's denim vest, but for the most part we toe the line.

But one of the ways we can show our creativity, and in the process differentiate our models from all the others, is the way we display a model. Here are a few of the more creative display choices at the Nats this weekend.
Make a pseudo-diorama.

Use a frame.

Position it in flight.

Use...real hair?

Use color.

Use a rock. Yes, a rock.

Keep it simple.

Use a mirror.

Use a mirror with grass on it.

Use a prop (a prop, not a propeller).

Use a case of beer.

Use Hello Kitty.
