Actually my whole house is my man cave (no wife) :shrug: .  Been on this forum for several years so

thought I would share my modeling area.  Anyway this is my retired senior citizen world.

 

Cheers,

 

Jerry    :piliot:

Not only do I envy you those nice display cases, but I am impressed with how organized your stash is! Much large than mine, yet it make mine look very messy by comparison!

 

BTW, you don't like F4 Phantoms, do you? :)

Good looking stash.............

 

I just this past weekend got a 72" x 48" x 24" 5 shelf storage rack (that I filled) for the rest of my stash that had overflowed into the bedroom............living room..............computer room..........and was slowly creeping elsewhere too. 

I and the GF took to redoing the entire wash room where the majority of my stash was. Now its ALL down there together.   This makes me want to finish cleaning and organizing it (for now its just all together without any organization) then take a pic.

I really like those cases. If I might ask, where did you get them from?

Very nice Jerry! I'm envious of your window behind your bench. I'm in a basement, so no views for me. But I see we have the same sickness for Phantoms.

Naw Tim, whatever gave you that idea?? :rofl:

The one in the top picture I had made when I retired.  It is 8' L x 5' H x 22" deep. Made mostly for 32nd scale stuff, like

Phantoms.  :yahoo:  The cabinet maker brought it in unfinished and I did the staining and glass install.

 

The two in the bottom picture I picked up from a music store back in the early 80's for $15 each.  The store had guitars in them, but they were originally 8 track tape sales cabinets.  I added the glass doors and shelves.

The windows are nice and come in handy when I want to spray lacquer paints that really smell.  Just open the windows

and turn on the fan behind me and it all exhausts out the window.  No need for a spray booth but I still use a respirator

though.

Thanks for the info. My roommate (also a modeler) and myself are taking about splitting the cost of a case, as most of the finished models here are sitting out in the open, gathering dust and cobwebs.

I would say you are in good shape all the way around! 

 

I really like the display cases and that lovely, diversified collection inside them!
