I've been building my own display set-up and still a bit to do but here's the story so far. Big thanks to Ed on SWFUC for advice on building this beast as never done any joinery before. Very Happy

The first image has been photoshopped with whitening as had to take 20 photos to get it all in and fix them together so lighting was inconsistant.

Looks good ham, are you worried about space at all in the future when your collection expands?

thats really smart, looks like its part of the room unlike say a bookcase.
Get ready to do the other wall when your collection expands

lol, thanks guys and think my collection is slowing down now that I'm getting the ones I want/need. The reason why I couldn't get a whole shot from the front is cos thats the whole room as it's kinda a walk-in collectors room from my main bedroom. I think the other wall will have to have just shelves of some kind, again will try and go for something different to match.

Before I made this my figures were just stacked on top of each other and couldn't really appreciate them to their fullest. Now it's wicked as can really see them all near enough in one go and really feel satisfied and appreciated them. Thanks to all for support and happy days to make this hobby worth while! Very Happy bow

Well, I figured someone would have seen it by now but I guess not - its very tough when you know lots of biker scout collectors to figure out who deserves or wants a figure more than the other one, so this time I didn't pm anyone - I know jimmy is off the forums for a while and maybe his funds are tied up so hopefully he won't be mad at me - Jimmy sorry Sad

The room looks great Ham. I never thought about doing slots like that. Guess you get to window shop everyday now. I seen a familiar face in there hiding in the back of one of those shelves, mate. Wink lol!

Nice Ham, awesome work dude. You're a natural. Sorta makes my putting off of my hanging of the extra cabinets on the wall (coz i'm worried they won't be straight) a little embarassing!

WOW HAM! That is sweet! With the first pictures I was thinking, 'How did he do that?'

Is that masonite?

Sorry dude, what's masonite? If it's a materials term then the frame is made from 2 x 4 timber and the rest is purely mdf. Smile

I understand now.

Similar to masonite IMHO

We used masonite in the theater a lot when we wanted to cover a wall flat, it is a great surface to paint.

Cheers,
JT
