Hello everyone,

There are dozens of YouTube videos on building glass/acrylic display
cases. Here is a one example:

Hello everyone,
I happen to discover this rather unique way to fancy up ordinary acrylic display boxes.
Attach the acrylic display box or boxes to a wall then cut and fit picture frame molding around the box around where it contacts the wall. One could easily attach many boxes of various sizes on a single wall or portions of walls. I can see how this could be used quite effectively to build an impressive display, very cheaply. No display cabinets or stands needed. Just no frills acrylic display boxes, picture frame molding, a small miter box and saw, hammer, small finishing nails, or attach molding with adhesive. Probably could find everything at Hobby Lobby. vertigo

i Like that idea. I used a similar method to display all those 1960's promo buttons for the TV show, and another for the Movie promo buttons.

Hello everyone,

New quality display cases can be pretty expensive. So, what about used
display cases? I looked at a few at some of the used furniture
sellers. A few, I looked at with acrylic panes had notable scratching
and all of these had a hazy look to them from abrasion scarring caused
by using the wrong cleaning polish or pre-cleaning methods before
polishing. Used glass display cases cost more but most I looked at
were still very clear, without abrasion or scratching. Note: If you
find a display case with great looking wood and scratched or hazy
abrasion damaged acrylic/glass panels don’t be too quick to pass it
over. Some of these museum quality cases are really works of art
within themselves. You can always replace the acrylic or glass panels.

Almost forgot one,
This display cabinet has to be the most elaborate and expensive display case/cabinet I've seen.
Must have been constructed to hold an outstanding Batman collection to justify its cost.

Hello everyone,
THE DIORAMA: A method to display your models that really draws attention to your models and excites the viewers interest beyond just a casual look.
The word "diorama" originated in 1823 as a type of picture-viewing device, from the French in 1822. The word literally means "through that which is seen", from the Greek di- "through" + orama "that which is seen, a sight". The diorama was invented by Daguerre and Charles Marie Bouton, first exhibited in London September 29, 1823. The meaning "small-scale replica of a scene, etc." is from 1902.
Daguerre's diorama consisted of a piece of material painted on both sides. When illuminated from the front, the scene would be shown in one state and by switching to illumination from behind another phase or aspect would be seen. Scenes in daylight changed to moonlight, a train travelling on a track would crash, or an earthquake would be shown in before and after pictures.
The modern diorama
The current, popular understanding of the term "diorama" denotes a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment.
One of the first uses of dioramas in a museum was in Stockholm, Sweden, where the Biological Museum opened in 1893. It had several dioramas, over three floors.
Miniatures
Miniature dioramas are typically much smaller, and use scale models and landscaping to create historical or fictional scenes. Such a scale model-based diorama is used, for example, in Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry to display railroading. This diorama employs a common model railroading scale of 1:87 (HO scale). Hobbyist dioramas often use scales such as 1:35 or 1:48 and more recently 1:6
Sheperd Paine, a prominent hobbyist, popularized the modern miniature diorama beginning in the 1970s.
