Hello everyone, I had the idea to make one like this some time ago and, today, it's almost ready.

Maybe I put a larger sticker at the top and the name of characters inside the individual boxes.

Hope you enjoy it, and sorry for the bad pics, my cam is a piece of s$%&....

Very nice, Julio!

I really like the idea of making something YOU like to show YOUR stuff - and this mine for the first 21 plus variants (I need to update the picture to show what I have inside now but you get my display idea).

Very nice!!!! Smile

cheers!!!!

This is a very nice display idea. Do you collect other lines or only glasslite? It is a great idea for those lines with small numbers like glasslite or top toys.

Hello buddy, I had glasslite and I am tryning to compete the model trem series 1. I am going to do one like that to model trem and to brazilian GIJoe from 1984 to 1986.

Yes, it's a great idea for small collections.

To be possible to put the stands inside, I had to cut some part. I did it with a hot knife.

The upgrade I made yesterday was to put the names inside each division. Looking at the walkie's glasslite guide, I had the idea to copy the original names on cards.

Then, I printed one with all of them.

I glued it in 3 layers of hard paper to make the name kind of 3D

Trying the size

And....ready

The display is looking great  :clap:  I like the idea to cut the stands, and the nameplate copies look good.
