Cool model displays...

Recommended Posts

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...

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

Isn't this the one that was shown under "general" when you first got it? Man, you really made a nice display out of it!
