I have really been helped by the thread all you contributed to regarding the use tents for light dispersal. Thanks to all of you for that!
But I do have an additional question regarding those of you who have made a structure yourselves. I was wondering if anyone had built one that would be sturdy enough to use clamp lighting with (mainly for overhead lighting).
Is it possible to use a clear acrylic box to diffuse the light instead of fabric. Or would that be too thick for lighting to pass thru. I had in mind using one of the storage boxes that can be found a the local market. But I would cut out the front and rear panels and placing it upside down over the model.
Just wondering if anyone had done this before or something similar.

Thanks again for all of the great ideas Guys!! Rob
