Greetings

Just ordered the Samurai Armor Kit (twelve month edition)

How big a display case is needed to house the finished model?

Jaxenro,

Welcome to the Samurai build and forum. I have just finished my build this morning. Honest. Will post a couple of pics right away to my build. A case is my next project for Date's preservation. I am anticipating interior space to be 23" (590mm) Width X 15" (380mm) Depth X 36" (920mm) Height.

FYI, I did the monthly subscription and started 12/29/2015 and finished 12/6/2016. Man-hours so far are 532.

Enjoyed every part of it, the forum is very helpful. Have fun!

Tom

Thanks. I will probably have a lot of questions as I go along. For instance I see some bloggers show an armor box as well as a stand, does this come with the kit? Available for purchase separately? Are there other accessories available separately?

OK I found this. Pricey but without the shelves it is glass on three sides and looks to be the right size

Jax,

Very pretty, very expensive. I have just put Date on display and your base need to be 15" x 22" interior minimum. Check out my finished build shots. My case will be plus 1" interior all the way around. Have fun, i did!Blink Cursing Flapper Confused Angry LOL and BigGrin

Jax,

Just read your earlier post. The display base supplied id a nice cardboard box. Check my build and you'll see i built a wooden one. Google samurai case and you see some good examples.
Any questions just ask.

Tom
