I See No Ships - Oh Yes I Do!


Greetings Gentle readers,

Up to recently I have shown off my X-Wing Miniatures Game fleets in a splendid IKEA glass display cabinet - an absolute steal at £40, with a £5 LED to light it, also from IKEA.

However, the ships always managed to appear somewhat jumbled and untidy. As an example, here was the shelf holding my Imperials:



So after a midnight brainwave, I rummaged through ebay until I found what I was looking for - ultra-cheap shop display stands in some form of clear acrylic or Perspex:




At just over a fiver each these solved the problem at a pinch. I would have almost the same floorspace per shelf but with the elevations in place, the individual ships would stand out more. I had to use two per shelf for maximum effect:











Aaaah - and relax! Maybe it's an OCD thing, but that seems miles better to me!


Until next time......
