The big display case

I have this one main spot in the house to use for display that’s about the size of a closet, and I’m trying to use it to it’s full potential.

I picked up this 5’10” wide, 6” foot tall, 20” deep display for free. Then I added a couple more shelves, more lights, and to get as many cars as possible into the case I put strips of plexiglass along the back of each shelf. Then I’ve been buying hundreds of these clear boxes and stacking them up along the back of each shelf against the plexiglass, helps with stability of the stacked boxes.


It’s starting to take shape so you can get an idea for what it will look like when full. Still need to buy a few hundred more boxes, and pull out the middle little shelves so I can put boxes on that shelf. It will hold over 1200 cars when completed.
