Posted PICS of a 1941 Plymouth recently that lives in my office. Thought some of you might also enjoy seeing the display case in which it resides. The red/blk LaSalle is the 1st white metal model I collected. A gift, I thought it was a rather heavy "toy", but then decided to add a bit of Bare Metal Foil to it. What a transformation! BMF and bits of paint have been added to every Brooklin and some other white metal models hence. I hope you enjoy seeing this office cabinet.

Great cabinets; thanks, Aunt Martha!  And the labels add a lot to the display!  Very nice! 😎

And this custom created 1941 Plymouth station wagon would go well with your woody shelf.   I must have picked a correct factory tan color as it matches your convertible.

I always enjoy to see pictures of your displays. The models are neatly lined up and you always have information that keep them vibrant. Many here claim they have thousands of models but we never see any displays. I supposed they are just boxed and stored in the garage or a warehouse or they may be to shy to post pictures of what they really have. C'mon guys ...... there is no competition. Post pictures of your collections.

The only real pictures of a large collection I ever saw is Goldvarg.

I'm with you Nickies. I love to see posts of how people display their models. I even enjoy seeing their work spaces, messy or not.

I think some of the collectors here just don't like to brag.....Bob Jackman comes to mind.

I like these!  And I especially enjoy those who have room for more shelving!   Here's my den/ toy room cabinets.

It's a mishmash of display cabinets of several different sizes, a jewelry store relic, a floor mounted cabinet for odds and ends, a display table picked up at a garage sale, and a window sill for recently built models that I don't know what to do with.  And there's more out in the hall.  Maybe it's time for a yard sale. . .

@d-m-holcombe Nice displays........... hope we will see more from other members. A previous poster said some members don't want to brag. If they are not interested to show what they have and share with the community, this is their choice. At least, some are not shy and this is a pleasure.

Was really delightful to see how you displayed your cars as well as the cars within them. Thanks to each of you.

Frank - Honest Al's is a really unique display "home". Saw many nice models in the wall cabinets too.

Bob - Your video is outstanding and demonstrated your passion for our little works of automotive art. Had to be a real labor of love to produce too, (time, effort, and technology). All in all, an amazing collection.

David H. - Loving the creative mishmash of your display cabinets.

I'll join in with a few less than great photos. There are more models scattered about.
