I come out this morning to find my UT Maclaren F1 road car upside down on the floor, engine hatch broken off, doors broken off. Shelf dove right off the very top shelf of the computer desk! Was this as accident? NO my cat decided it was time to climb all the way to the very top shelf and reek a little havoc. The same shelf that houses my Kyosho countach's as well as my 308 QV. Now the Mac was bad enough, but if my Kyosho's go on the floor I'll be short one cat really soon. Anyone have any ideas how to keep cats from knocking models on the floor?

That's really bad!!!
I think a good way of preventing cats of tossing cars down is to shoot them! :giggle
What also might help is a glass door in front of the cabinet (mount another shelf above the top one and then mount glass doors :confused )
Good luck on fixig the Mac :cheers !!!

Sorry to hear that...you can always send that "damaged" car to me :WTF
Hey that would be great then once you turn it into one of your awesome customs you'll send it back right? :danbanna

I'm thinking that maybe in the mean time before I get a new cabinet for my models I'll make little wheel chocks to block the tires. That will at least keep the cars from rolling. I have a huge block of clay that should do the trick just fine.

Sorry to hear that. I had a problem like that but it was with my dog. He ate three tires off three different die cast of mind when he was a puppy. He was made at me when I left him all day. I wanted to kill him.
