It's has been a long time coming, but I have finally managed to get a display case for the model!
It has taken me a lot longer than I thought it would, has I couldn't find one with
the dimensions that I needed, so I ended up having to have one made.
The case was made by
and they made a very good job of it.
Deciding what size it should be was also a bit tricky.
Anyway, I decided to allowed about 25cm clearance
all the way round and at the top, which I think is about right.
The dimensions turned out to be Width:425 Depth:200 Height:275
Next I constructed the base from plywood, timber with some beading around the edges, and some Oak
varnish to finish it off. The base has a groove in it all the way round, so the case can slot into it.
The model is held to the base with some black wire fed through a small hole in the base, which is then
tied off underneath.
All in all it is looking very smart.
