Default New Cabinets

I’ve been looking for a way to adequately display my collection since I began this hobby years ago. Recently I removed all of my free standing shelves and decided to go with Illuminated IKEA cabinets. So far I’ve used 3 Milsbo and 1 FABRIKÖR. Still a work in progress but this seems to be a pretty affordable option. I finally got my prized GMP 1/35’s behind glass.

Thank you. I have the complete HM A-1 collection so far. Throughout the case it’s a mix of HM, Century Wings, Caibre, and Air Commander (Maybe 1 Witty). Have a bunch more in boxes. Just no space to display......yet.

I saw those cabinets at Ikea awhile back. How many lbs is each glass shelf rated for?

Nice Collection and Cabs!

Price is reasonable and comes in black or white....

I'll consider it if my better half gives up some wall space

Honestly I didn’t even check but it’s solid. During one of the cabinet builds a shelf tipped over and smacked the corner of another shelf. It didn’t even scratch it. They are solid. I may build one more. I need to display my aggressors, Vipers and other various odd additions.

Thanks all for the positive feedback.

I went with the TRÅDFRI wireless remote system for the lighting. Really happy with it so far.

Haha. Yeah it’s a loner. I may add an F-117. I have a friend at my company that worked with them for a bit and would like to add one he’s been associated with.
