Mine are wherever I've got shelf space for the 1:43's, and most of my 1:18's are on clear display boxes on my bookshelf, the rest are on my piano.

I've got 4 cabinets, each 30" x 30" with 4 inch depth.

9 shelves each - get about 60 in a cabinet.

Mike - I get these from Ipswich - dscshowcases. He'll make any size to order, with a choice of background colours and wood

How do you display your models?

How do you display your models? I have two cabinets with all of my best models.

I use a number of display cabinets with glass sliding doors. The models get dusty enough even then, so displaying them without some form of see- through cover is a definite no, no. The trouble is that collections soon get too large and you run out of wall space; so then you either rotate the colection on display, which is a pain, or you finish up with a load of models in boxes, that you rarely look at. My models are primarily to 1/43 scale; I cannot imagine how you would display a large collection of bigger scale models, unless you own a very substantial property, I guess!

I've got two display cabinets on the wall, one has my F1 models the other touring cars and Group B cars. All the models are 1/43 and I've got a few in the loft because I don't have enough space for them all. I've also got a load of 1/24 models that I've built from Tamiya kits, currently these are all still packed in boxes (haven't been unpacked from the house move). I don't have anywhere to put them at the moment so they're staying where they are for now (and the unbuilt kits don't look like getting done anytime soon )

Hello,

I have one wall mounted display cabinet with 50 (I think) 1/43 scale cars in. Six cars live "out" in various other places and get dusty! Another 50 or so live in a plastic box in the loft. Also in the loft is my collection of "unbuilt but will get round to them one day" models ranging from 1/43 to very old Tamiya Jim Clark Lotus 49 in 1/12 scale.

I also have quite a collection of warplanes to be made but that's another story.

Nick

I've got 5 cabinets with glass doors which hold c.80 1/43 each. All cars removed from boxes and plinths.

Yes, the plinths take up far too much space.
