1/160 Scale Baseball Stadium
This page features a 9,000 seat baseball stadium in 1/160 scale. It has all of what you would expect to see at a game in a Major League ball park. The base model used was an extremely rare kit of the Colosium by Atlantic. Our intention was to fill the staidum with fans but we never got around to finishing it.
The kit used was HO which is 1/87 scale so in order to scale it down to 1/160, all the seating areas were doubled up using scratchboard to cut the seat lines. This was a very long and tedious process since 9,000 seats had to been etched. Dugouts & camera pits were made. And a safety net was placed behind homeplate over the crowd made of fine silk material. Light trusses with real lighting were created as well.
Shown in a small photo above to the left is an equally scaled kit of a revell Goodyear blimp model. This model has been out of production for quite some time. This kit was constructed seperately and hung overhead for a nice added touch!
Below to the left you'll see the outfield with a bullpen and emergency EMS vehicles area. And to the right just above homeplate, the pressbox filled with reporters and commentators for the game in progress. Advertisements were placed all around the stadium and baseball team logos were snatched from of all things, baseball cards! :)
