    OK so I gave it a go here is my first attempt.... all up cost was around AUD $140 USD $99

    Materials were aluminium for backing plate and perspex and 1 x 3ft fluro fitting... size: 720MM x 1040mm to take poster 640 x 980

    still have a few mods to make for version 2

    Very nice.
    You saved a ton.
    Your poster frame reminds me of this.

    Yes, seen those ones they look good.

    My only problem at the moment is that the 3mm clear and opal perspex I used is way way to thick ... I am trying to source a thinner 1mm material or acetate etc and am having problems find a thinner material.

    A thinner material would make it easy to change out the posters... with the thick 3mm stuff I uses it's a pain to change posters as it is harder to bend and work with than thinner stuff.
