Workshop Model Displaying

Over the years, friends have ask how do I display my models once they are built. When we were in our old house, I had the glass wall unit mounted above the stairs. The rest of my models were in the loft/workshop on various shelves or packed away in boxes.

Now we are in the new house, things are very different. My sweet wife let me have one of the spare bedrooms for my workshop (man cave), but as long as I kept all of my stuff in there. So here I am with half of the floor space compared to the old house and less storage (hiding holes) for my un-built kits. For this, I use our grandsons old wardrobe to store the smaller size kit boxes in along with some ongoing projects on hold and bits 'n' pieces. The rest of the kits are in packing boxes in the loft.

Now onto my model on display in my room. Not all of my built models are on display in here. My armour dioramas are kept in storage boxes to protect them and some of my cars are still packed away in the loft. Decisions will have to be made at some point on what to do with some of my older models. A few will definitely be kept, others will have to go, but how to do this is undecided. So onto the ones on display to which I will add a caption to each photo listing what is in each one.
