Display Case, 1/48 HMS Surprise


Recommended Posts

Has anyone built a glass display case for AL HMS Surprise? I am looking for the outside measurements for the glass cover. I like building furniture so giving my sore eyes from the dear old surprise I would like to build something bigger.

The kit has measurements of course but adding inches and imagining the size, I just thought I would ask.

If no one has a hard, fast answer, when I had a case built, the builder said measure and add 4" to the length and width for the inside measurement.   The outside will vary on glass thickness and whether you use decorative or structural framing at the corners, etc.   Your mileage may vary as this isn't set in concrete.
