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!
