Wow BRN :omg: . Nice work on those Japenese Underground Park. Did you make the cabinet yourself.

New Acrylic display for six 1/18th scale models - a bit on the expensive side at €149.

I often prefer lining up a collection of cars displaying their profile only, but this worked out to be pretty good too. Better than crystal clear display cases. The lighting helps solidify the feeling of its own contained world.

Since I am finding it very difficult to get suitable glass cut to size for my Detolf's. I'm experimenting with sheets of perspex which I am going to cut to size myself.
I noticed looking at the Norev display at Nuremberg they used perspex with a secondary brace underneath.
More when I see what happens, I have a feeling I may have to sandwich two sheets together for strength.

Did you get the perspex cut for you or did you do it yourself?
I have a suitable circular saw with which to experiment.
No matter what happens, perspex will not end up in a thousand fragments spread around the floor... :yahoo:

Very good.
Anyone who can build Pocher models to some degree of fit and finish can do any DIY!   :yahoo:
They're notorious, a bit like a number of the old Protar kits.
I know, I gave up on at least two.....

VERY nice!  Do you have any more pics or additional info on how you did this?  I've been thinking of something similar for some of my CMC models, as I haven't found a retail solution that fits my particular needs.

Thank you both! :) ! I am very happy with the result!
I do not have picture from building. But i used the following:

4cm thick Mahonie wood (6x 150cm) for the bottom, rear and top (lid). I shave the top to 2,5cm. becouse of the weight. the wood is +/- 20cm wide
150cm acryl glass + 2x 38cm for the sides. Also the hight is 38cm. (6mm acryl glass)
aluminum corners to keep the acryl in place.
Also the lid i made some routing grooves, so the acryl glass slide in the wood. So the top is used as a lid.
I bought some LED lights from ikea, that i used for the lighting.

And offcourse i used wood varnish to finnish the wood for a nice texture :)

Note: i do have all the professional equipment on my work, for example a planing machine and circular saw etc. I "own" a complete workshop for wood and metal.
