Well after much research and saving I've just submitted my order for a display case.
I've read good reviews about Nova displays and I know a couple of guys here have had them made, so I went with them.
Should be pretty cool, it's pretty big but should last me a life time (I intend to have a long life lol).
At 3000 W x 2000 H x 800 D It'll also take a number of Liberators, Lancasters etc.
It'll be split in to 3 sections with 5 shelves on the sides and 3 in the centre, 1 x shelf will run the full length to take my planned Rail road, with the BR52, transporters and Flak wagons etc
I had intended to have it in place by last November when I said I would retire Gary's travelling model show, but it took a bit longer than anticipated to save the $$
I'll send photos and updates as I get them for anyone interested.
Yeah will be the crowning point of the man cave and will encourage me to finish some of the half built things I've got, to (rather a lot of those I'm afraid lol). Just being able to unbox all my built stuff after having it all in boxes for the past 4-5 years will be so nice, will definately be posting more pictures as it gets filled up.
Call them up, they'll see you ok, I said I'd pimp them out so if you do call just say I said. I know Terry has been in contact and said I'd pimped them.
Their products look good and I'm really happy with their service so far, I like how they are pragmatic and open to variations.
Thanks for the tip off for custom display cabinets locally G1. I've been meaning to get the ball rolling on this for a while. I found Des from Nova really personable, understanding and easy to talk to about my options. Hopefully I'll get some prices soon.
Wow, that's going to be an impressive display case Gary. I purchased a case from Nova Displays back in 2016, not nearly has big as yours but big enough for me. The only problem I have now is that it's full.
With the WNW Lancaster kits on the way, I might need another one.
Judging by what's in there I'd say about 1000 x 600?
There's room for the Lanc, if you move the P-51's down to surround the Fort (at least two will go down there) and one up by the Liberator you should have a spare shelf then
I went with1000mm wide x 700 deep x 1800 high with the intention of displaying some of the more larger 1/32 kits. I was concerned that the B-17 was not going to fit but there was plenty of room and you can see the B-24 fits in there nicely.
Glad I went with 800 deep, I've a B-17 to put in there as well (once I take it off the shelf of shame and finish it lol).
All the big kits I can build now, I'm really looking forward to getting it, I've got lots of big kits a lot are around the 1m mark. I've got about 6 Tank transporters in 1/35 a big U-Boat, an S boat and 2 or 3 Liberators, a couple of big Lancs etc. Plus the aforementioned 1/35 Choo choo
