After much thought I decided to put a base under my 1/350 scale island. This will make storage simpler and help avoid damage to the model. link

That's a sweet looking terrain piece.

It's all about the base, no trouble

You could make a song out of that

Seriously agree that is a great piece of terrain – well worth fighting over!

Beautiful! One small recommendation. If you make the base slightly more rounded and paint it a lighter shade of blue, it would like as if the water is shallower around the island.

I would make the base smaller – makes it easier to store.
