Have you got a sketch of what you have in mind? How big will it be? What are you making it from? This thread has lots of starting points for set making; http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=21&topic_id=1252&mesg_id=1252

In the last few days we answered a couple of questions about setbuilding in this foru,. Try clicking on Read New and set it to show posts from the last week. Then go through the posts in the Setbuilding forum (or maybe the Newbie Corner). I laid down a lot of information about how to rough out structures fairly easily, and Nick posted some pictures and once again went into some detail on how he builds sets. If you really want to delve deep into some great info, then just start looking through all the old messages in Setbuilding. It's amazing what a little searching can turn up! I see Rachel has come to the rescue and posted a direct link to the thread I was talking about. But if you're serious about learning to build sets, then do dig deep into the archives.
