    GTXF Diecast Collectors

    So, a Detolf + Dioder lights + some eBay risers have got me here:



    Need to route the cabling neatly, and obviously fill the spaces, but my phone camera doesn't quite do it justice. Looks cool in person.

    Modelissimo order made...

    All my diecasts are still packed up, >5 years after moving

    I really should get that shelving put in that I was looking at.

    I want floating shelves in a 6 foot wide recession in the wall. IKEA does not sell the proper shelving for that size (I checked).

    Your peer pressure is ineffective against the costs that I have seen in my research

    Matt, it's hard to tell but have you got 18th scale models in there or 43rd scale?

    I'd think they're 43 as the detolf is only 400mm wide. A friend has his BMW art cars in one and it's strictly two per shelf without and kind of risers.

    Yep, 1/43s. There's a 1/18 BMW M1 just about visable on the bottom shelf.
