Half the fun in building model cars is showing them off when you’re done! As you start your collection, you might think the best way to display model cars is by placing them up on a shelf or spreading them across a desk. While it might look nice at first, this doesn’t do much for keeping your models safe. Simply leaving your model cars scattered around mindlessly puts them at risk for wear and tear, falling over, and getting buried in dust.
Fortunately, once you get into model-building, you’ll find that scale model display cases exist. You might think that these are just a marketing ploy, but you’d be wrong. Display cases serve a dual purpose — not only do they keep your model cars organized in one spot, creating a nice aesthetic in your space, but they also protect them.
Here are some of the best ways to display your model cars:
