MODEL SHIP DISPLAY CASES- THE OPTIMAL WAY TO SHOWCASE THE VALUE OF YOUR MODEL SHIP COLLECTION
THE FANTASTIC COMBINATION OF MODEL SHIP & DISPLAY CASE
If you’re anything like me, you hate to see all your model ships covered by a layer of dust. That, and the fact that although everybody knows that these models don’t usually have a lot of moving parts, somebody is going to come along and try to trim a sail or basically touch something that wasn’t meant to be handled. That is where a display case for model ship is invaluable as it protects the model from the elements (dust mostly) and clumsy or inquisitive viewers.
When it comes to the care and longevity of your latest creative project or collection, you need a way to protect it for years to come.

Nevertheless, there’s an important thing you should keep in mind keeping your model ship away from any direct source of heat. Sure, your own collection would look great displayed beside the window, under natural light. But exposing the ship to direct sunlight will lead to quicker deterioration.
Even though a case will keep your model dust and dirt-free, lighting can really bring a display to life. Lighting from above and slightly in front can be used to make your model ship the center of attention, even in the most prestigious of settings and could be effectively applied when displaying your model in an alcove or large cabinet.
Displaying a model over a fireplace as shown below, may be an option, but only if the space directly over the fireplace stays relatively cool. Use 2-8 lights for each model or use a multi-light module.
As long as you follow the advice we’ve written above, your models will stay in mint condition for years to come. Do yourself a favor and invest in a quality display case.
