Model Display Cabinet by billybob884 Model Display Cabinet by billybob884
I've finally got sick of having my models spread out all over the place, so I got the idea to see if I could make a display case for 'em. I went out and got a big cheap shelving closet from IKEA, cut some holes in the doors, and used clear acrylic plexiglass sheets to cover them with nice trim around the borders to make viewing windows. I used a 25-foot strand of white holiday lights to illuminate the case, which actually worked pretty well. I've got a little extension cord with an on/off foot pedal attached to it so you don't have to plug/unplug them. I may go out and add a second strand next time I'm home.... mm, we'll see.

This has the added bonus of helping to keep dust from collecting on them... which has been a bit of a problem. Took about a day and $100 to complete. The only thing that's missing is my Needler, Combat Shotgun, and all the ammo, which are all down at school at the moment.

I've gotta re-arrange things later though, Gregg is completely hidden in the middle of the top shelf. Oh, and as usual, the actual lighting is much better than the picture shows...

I can't get over what you used and the price. curio cases can get so expensive. I would love to get something like this for a local gaming convention to protect people's painted miniatures at the show. This is an idea of what can be done. Thanks!

Handling was the biggest problem I had, it's hard to see, but a couple of them have taken a lot of damage (a few I even had to re-do).

Back when I used to just keep them on my dresser, we had a really windy day once, so much so that it blew my bedroom door shut trapping our old greyhound in my room for the day. He got all nervous and kept circling the room looking for a way out, while the wind also happened to blow a few of them off the dresser. You can piece together what happened from there.

oh wow! that wooden building frame on the top of the shelf! i have one just like it, different model, but same construct. and you did a great job making the windows, i think i'll try something like that, however i'll probably fail horribly...

heh, that's actually only half of it; we did them in groups for an architecture class in high school, and since we both wanted to keep it, we cut it down the middle

Hmm...

What I tend to do is, especially for guns, look at the template before I print, then collate 105 and 180gsm papers accordingly, allowing me to keep my sturdiness on big parts, but not ripping my hair out with the little ones...

That's a really nice thing to do for your papercrafts. =) Mine are all just cluttered on a few shelves in my room... along with whatever else is up there.
