I was just able to get an MR Snowspeeder but it didn't really come with anything else. Does anybody know how much this thing weighs and any alternatives base ideas? Also, would it happen to fit inside of a detolf shelf?

The model has no mounting points. It sits on three plexi pedestals that are attached to its mirrored base. If you don't have a base, then you will have to come up with something to hold it up. It is, like all MR Star Wars studio-scale models, heavy and fragile.

So if I just get an acrylic display, do you think that's work fine? Also, is it even necessary to have a base, or can it just lay fine on any flat surface?

Man, I'd love to find a good deal on one like that so I can customize it. I need to find a broken one or something.

I have mine displayed on a custom round base which is hidden under model no plexiglass over it, looks like the snowspeeder is hovering, I have the original base and case which I don't use, I hate mirror bases when I use them I cover the mirror with black fabric. You need to put something underneath because the model tilts forward, you can just put a piece of foam big enough so you don't see it and the model is steady.

Any pics of your setup or even any chance you'd sell that base?

So I'm trying to get a custom one made based on the original one. Would anybody be able to give me the measurements between each of these points?

Here's the measures for you. Note that all measures were taken from the edge of the base, not the edge of the mirror.
