Hi,

Just wondered if anyone out there has managed to find a display case for this?
If so, where did you get it?

(I wouldn't mind finding a wall mounted case if one exists!) Wink

Thanks
Rick

I get my cases from Widdowsons. They are not cheap but excellent cases. They do all different styles and custom sizes.

Thanks,the cases are UV protected as well.
The helmet was from the Haley Davidson Fatboy kit. Stage 15. I bought that issue and painted it in the Captain America colours.

Hi Mark,

Very, very impressed with your build log! I particularly love the weathering on the engine etc. I'd be very interested to know which products you used for it.

Just out of curiousity, what size is your display cabinet? (therefore it will prevent any issues when ordering a bespoke case).

Just to fill you in, I am receiving my kit bi-monthly & at present I am expecting build pack 9 any time now.
I haven't started building yet as I prefer to have all the packs together rather than wait for each one hence the reason for all my questions! I am gathering as much information / materials / tools as I can before I commence.

Cheers & I appreciate your help!
Rick

The case I ordered was:
SKU CDC-501 5mm Thick Cover with Inside Sizes 75cm x 30cm x 40cm High -Black Ash Wooden Base with a Black coloured center.
The 75cm length is a tight fit and I would recommend you complete the kit first and just measure it for your own peace of mind. If you look at mine, it fits in at a slight angle to get it in.

The weathering on the engine was Starship Filth (Fantasy) Oil Abteilung 502 ABT510. Mixed with a little turps just to thin it out a little. Liberally paint it all over and in the recesses. Leave to dry for a few minutes, depending on the weather and how hot it is. Then clean it off with cotton balls and leave to dry off for around 48 hours. I also did the same with the chrome to tone it down. If it it hot and humid and appears to dry straight away, wipe it down sooner.

Hope that helps.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing you build log.

Cheers
Mark

Thanks Mark!

Weathering oil noted & ordered!

I'll no doubt have more questions nearer the time when building.. (if that's OK?)

Much appreciated
Rick
