We do not work with acrylics or plastics: these scratch very easily and may go cloudy after a while…

Custom Built Display Cases

Our display cases are all individually made to measure for most types of models including ships, vehicles, dolls, figurines, plus trophies, antiques and collectibles. In fact anything which requires protection from dust or inquisitive little (and not so little…) fingers can benefit from being in one of our cases. The display cases can be made to any width, depth and height – to a maximum of 2200mm when all three dimensions are added together.

We bond the glass in such a way so that no wooden joinery is required. This gives a nice clean line and does not impair your vision. The display cases have no opening doors which may allow dust inside. The glass sits in a neatly routered groove in the baseboard, keeping dust out but still allowing ready access whenever you need it. Including a mirror back panel is great for an enhanced view if your display case is to be placed against a wall.

Baseboard Options

Our baseboards are solid and allow you to screw your model down if required. This does not apply to mirrored bases, of course.
MDF bases can be supplied in just primer, for those who wish to paint them themselves.
