Display cases as requested… Happy New Year!
Some of our Imodeler friends made a request in the comments section of my last article which was about the Tamiya F4U-1 #15 as flown by Capt. James Cupp.
It was requested that I post up some pictures of my display cases. So without further delay, here are some pictures of several of my display cases. I have one Armor, one more in aircraft, and one aircraft case that is almost empty for now.
Some of these planes will look familiar as I have posted articles on them. These are all 1/48 scale.
(All that is except for the second to last display case shown). It has 1/32 scale planes on the top two shelves, and 1/28 scale biplanes on the bottom. The larger models on the middle shelves are 1/48.
The very last picture is my Armor display. All of my Armor builds are in 1/35 scale.
There are several unfinished projects in the mix here as well… namely a Heinkel He-111, Douglas A-20 in NMF.
Two photos near the end of the slide show are of my nearly empty display case which I recently restored by adding numerous glass shelves, some mirrors and replaced all of the wood. I just placed the “Great Lakes recovery F4U-1” and Airfix P-40 inside this one. Hopefully over this next year I can start to fill this one up…
I’m sorry about the quality of the photos. The displays all have mirrors and it makes it hard to capture decent pictures while the cases are inside my garage / hobby room.
I hope you all have a Happy New Year and that our New Year is healthy, productive, and safe one…
