Your Displays
 
My models are in their respective boxes at the moment and I'd like to set them free but not exposed to the elements (i.e. dust). For those of you who have display cabinets or closets, post them below. Looking for designs that would suit my room and taste. :confused:

Cheers! :D

Here is our first glass cabinet thanks to a dear friend who knew we wanted one. He gave us the money for it.

I've got one area where I keep the majority of them and then I've got a few scattered areas. I've managed to get four into the China cabinet -- but no more than four. My wife agreed despite my mother's strong objections.

Our Planes have taken over our small Townhouse. Hubby is getting fed up a bit. Oh well ;)

A little self build.
Im thinking about making it darker, also the cable in the top left needs hiding.
The second picture is with light on.
I need more models. :p

Hmmmmm yes well mine still grow and multiply in the loft. Sure those A380s are up to something as a new A340 hatched.......

Most of my models stay in their boxes because of the lack of space in my room.

few of them are put in my IKEA Detolf cabinet

Very nice use of Detolf's. Who made the Concorde and 2707? Are you collecting PAA piston pounders too?

Re: Your Displays
 
Here is my set up... altho its an old pic sadly as most of my Billy Bookcase now sits empty due to downsizing my collection, I will be left with just the two Detolfs but I am considering a third Detolf to replace the empty Billy...

I always love seeing everyone elses collections...... :)

The Concorde is a custom, based on a Hogan, done by the talented Al Stang. The 2707 was purchased off eBay a while back, its plastic, and does not have any manufacturers marks on it. The box it came in was generic, too. IIRC, the eBay seller was a company from Florida. I haven't collected any piston PAA aircraft (yet), but may one day.

Re: Your Displays
 
I was bored the other day so I took photos of our boxes. All boxes are empty since Aryelle does not want the planes to stay in them


In the second photo, you can see some of Aryelles Ford Crown Victoria Police cars protecting her under the bed LOL

Thank you.

They are her favorite car. She wants to get one and fix it up one day

I have 500+ models so the only thing that works for me are wall mounted shelves. It does require some dusting but cabinets would not work, or I'd have to resort to buying professional retail displays. I will not become a box collector, I'd rather not collect anymore.

One or two of those boxes look familiar. :)

Re: Your Displays
 
Some quick snaps this morning of my current collection display... have consolidated my collection now to just Delta, American, United, Air Canada, Hawaiian, Finnair and Virgin Atlantic, along with some of the American budget carriers models...

And as for my once large Tristar collection... all have gone except for a pair of Delta and Eastern L1011s....

Detolf No1...

DELTA-711 04-21-2015 02:33 AM

Re: Your Displays
 
I am currently awaiting delivery of 4 more Delta models, aswell as pre-orders for the new jetblue, allegiant, and Frontier from Gemini200... so my collecting going forward will revolve around these select airlines I have consolidated too :)

Detolf No2...

Re: Your Displays
 
Nice display Simon... very clean and crisp with those white units and having one model per shelf really shows it off...

Collections can become cluttered, including mine, with a large number of models per shelf...

Display cabinets (80)

My Daughter and I have been collecting since June of 2013.

It is all my fault that she got into collecting. Hubby is not too thrilled when the Planes are taking over. Literally.

That is hugely impressive....you were able to convince your wife to display your models with the fine China......you're the man...:)

When you have so many crammed in such a small space that you have to display some models tail first, it ceases to be tasteful.
