Is it possible to get any form of cabinet that keeps dust to an absolute minimum?

I daren't take my cars out of their boxes as I just know that when it comes to dusting them down there will be snapped winglets and mirrors everywhere.

I want to get my Montoya and Kimi display up and running and I am all out of space to display the boxes. So they need to be in a cabinet, but no way if it is dust city.

Mine are completely dust free. Had them built to order by a bloke in Ipswich. www.dscshowcases.co.uk IIRC

Model display cabinets?

Can anyone point me to were I can pick up display cabinets for 1/18 diecast models.

Any style or size will be considered.

I have any models I have on various shelves around the house. SO I see them by accident if you see what I mean. So I can't help that much, however there have been a coupleof similar threads in the past that may give some hints. Although they aren't specifically about where to get them.

Cheers Adam.

Hmm....I'm still looking for cabinets myself. Unfortunately, my budget doesn't cover storage for 100 plus models. So the attic it is!

These people custom built me a couple of large display cabinets which would hold up to 80 1:18 models if only I could afford them They did a top job, at a fair price, and were always helpful even putting up with me changing specs halfway through the order process. They were friendly and polite from the moment I first contacted them to the day I collected them from their workshop. Which is more than I can say for their rivals (I contacted 10 to 12 different companies)

Thats what I use as well..
I have a large (6'2" tall) cabinet with 4 shelves and 4 glass doors..
4 shelves gives me 6 compartments so I bought some cheap lights and fitted them via a gang socket behind the cabinet and so also have the cabinet illuminated..

Whole lot probably cost £120...

Looks pretty neat as well...

Very nice. I have your Bentley and Merc.
I have all of my F1 1:18s in a cabinet. Wooden one that is now. I'm thinking of seling most of 1:18s as I prefer 1:43s and most of them I got just so I could. So there's Mattel that I don't like at all.
