  3. Hi, Corner show case As the number of my models continues to grow, it was necessary to find a place in my living room on their exposure. So the idea for a corner display case is a good solution. It will be a safe haven for the model Peter von Danzig, the ship of the fifteenth century, which was related with the city in which I live. She was a privateer of Hansa League during the war against Britain and France. She’s biggest conquest in 1473 it was cargo of the Burgundian galley "San Matteo” in it was triptych of the Last Judgment painted by Hans Memling. Material for display case Profiled slats of pine HDF boards white Furniture corner joints + screws Plexi (for reason of required bending it was ordered in specialized company) Two lamps + cable + power supply unit + switch Time for job - two dys Tadeusz
  4. Hi, I made display cases for my models. Our models built at the expense of many hours of work should last many years and enjoy the perfect eye look. To protect them from dust, which is the main enemy of these delicate structures and especially the rigging, place them in showcases. Such cabinets can do with your own hands. Several ways to implement them. The frame structure of aluminum profiles joined with aluminum blind rivets. The frame structure of wooden profiles glued and fastened with nails and screws. The frame structure of PCV angles with use of double face self-adhesive tape for joint it with plexi plates. The basis for showcases can be made from MDF board, plywood or wood boards. The cover can be made as the transparent plexi or the same material as the base. Lamps for lighting model can be installed in showcase cover. PVC angles Wooden profiles Metal fittings and legs Aluminium, PVC and wood strips Woodenstructure of display case Aluminium structure of display case PVC structure of display case Tadeusz
