Hi Bob,
I got the frames at Ikea several years ago, but I am sure they have similar styles today.  Some come with Plexiglass and others with real glass.  I have both but generally I think the larger ones are Plexi.
The piano hinge is the key thing to keep the frame straight with the pressure spread out evenly for the whole upright side of the frame.  The back of the shadowbox is the same piece of press board that came with the frame.  I left it white, but you could paint it any color you like.
You can also make the box deeper to accommodate different styles of figures.  I have a couple that are only one to two inches deep, others that are up to four inches.
