July 28, 2019
Serenity (firefly-class spaceship) first appeared in the pilot episode of Joss Whedon's Firefly, which is set in the year 2517, in a star system humanity migrated to after using all of Earth's resources.

The team at plinths and pedestals used all of their resources to create the perfect display plinth and acrylic display case befitting a truly magnificent work of art. Plinths & Pedestals were delighted to have been chosen and commissioned to create a custom designed bespoke display solution, not least to have gained the trust of the client in the handling of such a priceless work of art.
While we aren't all sci-fi fans, most of us can relate to and marvel at the sheer commitment and human skill employed in creating such a highly detailed model. The photos show the exterior beauty, but they cannot convey how much detail the model possesses inside, it's truly breathtaking.

Early stage in display plinth production

Dean & Ben seen above (from right to left) were instrumental in taking the initial instruction & brief right through to design and construction, making sure the client was happy throughout the process. Displaying a prized subject such as an art piece, museum artefact, sports memorabilia, or even a full-size motorbike isn't as easy as you may think! Get the proportions wrong, and the display will appear unbalanced. Choose an incorrect finish or an unflattering colour, and the display will fail to impress.

Correct use of lighting makes all the difference

Lighting is a huge consideration, not only the position, but the temperature of the lights play an essential role in highlighting the centre of attraction.For public display, materials can be a real headache. Fire safety regulations have to be considered carefully.
When listening to your brief, the team at Plinths and Pedestals will be able to guide you through the maze of fire grade paint finishes, the right plastics to be used for display cases and back them up with certificates when required. Museum curators have exacting requirements when it comes to bespoke display plinths and cases, incorrect paint finishes, and use of certain acrylics can have a debilatitive effect on ancient artefacts.
