At Christmas we are asking for world peace.

So time to put my warmachines behind glass in a new cabinet.

It's always a pleasure to see fellow-collectors' displays. Nice cabinets, Kas!

Kind regards, Jan

Although UV/daylight has no direct access to my display cabinets - they are mostly even in the dark - I turn my models every now and then in order to reduce even the slightest risk of discolouration. Although this appears to be a simple job, it isn't. Working too quickly or uncontrolled, with shaky hands, may cause a lot of damage. I just finished another display unit this afternoon. Photos taken after removing and subsequently before replacing the transparent cover plate.  Kind regards, Jan

Jan,

You should display your models on turntables with a clock control which would turn the models once a month.

I have had the priviledge to visit your study many years ago and I was very impressed by that room, it has certainly changed a lot since and must be much better. Why dont you make a 360° video and post it here. I am certain that fellow collectors would apreciate and be as impressed as I was.

All the best.

Jacques
