Display stand for Isambard Kingdom Brunel: A box girder back to keep the surface flat. It'll look the part with some printed rivets!
A section of chains from the classic IKB picture should finish the back off nicely.
I'm ignoring Smelter's facebook prods – paper chains? This is IKB not Father Christmas.
(That said I'll probably give it a go and see how it looks.)
Referring to original IKB pictures I decided to give the side-burns a little depth.
This simple fold of paper seems quite effective.
And here he stands. The back board is 20mm short but looking promising I think.
I'm going to have a go at making a corrugated card box with sliding sleeve to fit the whole thing in.
