Display Case!

My amazing wife and I took the kids to the Ikea today. I have wanted a display case for my models for a very long time. We did the Swedish  meatballs and all that jazz, dropped the two middle kids off in the play area and went a walking through the maze that is the Ikea store.

Low and behold there it was all on sale and glorious. The display case of my hobby dreams. It was all glass and for only $69.99 (plus $9.99 for the lighting). My Wonder Woman of a wife actually said yes when I asked if I could have it.

So after two hours a few choice curse words and lots of Windex, here it is. Bask in it's glory. It's ok if you want to be a bit jealous.

Now I just need to hurry and finish a bunch more models to add to it.

 Now that right there is some motivation to get painting!


  1. Those cabinets are pretty nice, huh? I have one in my hobby room and it's about full so I need to get another one eventually.

    Did you have any trouble with the door? Mine has a difficult time closing and it takes a good amount of force to get it open... I'm always worried that stuff will fall over.

  2. I did have some trouble with the door at first. My wife figured out the problem, The top was screwed down too tight. We loosened it up a bit and now it works like a champ.
