I found this vintage Timex watch display on Craigslist for $50. It's 6ft tall, has a lighted top and motorized rotating shelves. I am going to give it a custom makeover and it will hold about 40-50 1/25 scale cars when done. Let's see your cool or unusual model displays...

Since it has the center that looks like it holds gas, you could get a lighted globe and a gas hose/handle and make it a faux gas pump. :)

Man, if I had one if those I'd be inspired to build more cars to fill it! Nice find!

I had one almost exactly like that one...and wish I still had it.

If it is like the one I had you will need to do some modifying to get 4 1/24 scale cars on a shelf but 4 1/25 scale cars should be no problem. You might have to do some form of way to keep the models from shifting when the thing spins.

A place my wife used to work at and went out of bus had a bunch of cool sunglass displays. I grabbed two to three of them and are in storage waiting for the day I buy a house and have a room big enough to put them in.....

I have 5 glass cabinets. 3 of which are converted gun cabinets that work very well after some slight modifications. But my favorite display is this resin Cobra shelf. cobras008.jpg
