Im curious to know how those of you with full size Bat Shields mounted them? I have one of Alex's, was thinking about a shadowbox.

That would be one massive heavy shadowbox, and most likely home built due to the size.
I have it anchored by the straps on to a steel entry door that is unused to the outside.

Lol Scott...

I had it anchored, but just didnt think it looked right.

And yes, very big shadow box, probably too heavy and expensive

Yep, I used a curtain rod with metal hooks at the ends and painted to match the door of my shop...

Not a bad idea Chuck, looks great.

I may just go to that seeing how stealthy it looks.

I had a local framing studio build a shadow box for my shield and batarangs. I'm tempted to add some red pin-striping to the frame, but imagine it'd be more trouble than it's worth...

Very cool indeed! Are those the prop identification "tags" from Etsy?

You can find readymade red adhesive pinstriping for a variety of uses (car, model car/airplane, etc), pretty easy to apply in my experience. However, I think it would distract from the cool props and background art.

I do believe that is where I found them; if memory serves, I had to request the Yvonne Craig one be added to the range.

Absolutely brilliant Wibble.
It is a little hard to tell from the pic, is the Adam' rang behind or on top of the shield?
Very nice, it is a hard piece to display.

Thank you kindly :)

The Batarang is on top and secured using loops of fishing line.
