Many thanks.

It certainly is a lovely model. The detail is incredible even down to be able to read the switch labels on the console.

Like many models i was so up for this one first time it came out but funds were not available at that time so really pleased when they relaunched it.

So far its all going together so well i would highly recommend this kit to anyone thinking of building a large scale car kit.

I will have to start thinking about how i will end up dispjaying all of these as i have 3 more editions before the porsche is complete, a fair way to go on the jaguar and same with the harley fat boy. As to the EAGLEMOSS Aston i won't even mention that (whoops i just did).

I saw some cases on ebay but they are ok for a single kit at around £120 but not ideal for a range of models (ie will cost a fortune).

Never been to an ikea store but they do a glass display cabinet for around the same price as one ebay car case but not sure about the shelf weights.

Tony

I'm sure you have the necessary skills to make your own display cases, should be able to find a number of vids on the tube to help you along. Local carpenter would also be able to knock something up and probably at a good rate too....

A great build so far. I bet you're having fun.
I'm now on my 3rd build of this one as custom builds.
There's just SOOOO much you can do with it.

A really great kit.
Keep it coming.
