Default Running out of ramp space



I know it is a luxury problem but i have only one DC-10 spot left lol
And they dont make this colour cabinet anymore , so adding extra planks is out of question

Nice collection!

You might try prowling your local Craigslist or Kijiji websites, for used cabinets. I've bought most of my Detolfs via that route. Vastly cheaper than buying new, and you might find another used cabinet identical to yours.

I'm in the same boat regarding display space; my Detolfs are all full, and all have extra shelves added. 1:200 747s take up a lot of real estate!

I see your problem ! Extra shelves would only be a temporary solution. What to do when the new shelves are full ?

I'm at the same threshold as you are. I have 300 x retro airliners in 200 scale. 30 of which are stored in their boxes. No point in going on indefinitely. On top of that I have 22 larger airliner display models, a display cabinet of vintage toy cars and 170 beautiful repro Chinese made DINKY TOYS arriving at the rate of 2 per month .

Start selling the ones that aren't must haves. That's what I do. If a new model comes out that is a must have, buy it and sell one that isn't as important to you. I limit myself to one detolf case full of airplanes. No reason to have any more than that.
