The indivduals are held up with these wood strips that I make for all my carded displays...less wear on the card and dresses it up a little more than pushpins. The 4 and 5 packs are just little shelves at 20-ish degree angles with a little dowel at the front so they dont slide off. the little angle gives it more dimension.

I did not realize you were such a big Bug lover! And what's with that trailer being towed by the flamed Bus?
Why a Big John's Trailer! Normally has a bug on it, but I couldnt decide on one today.



THanks everyone for the compliments!!!!

A bit buggy are we?. Dang, I'm bugged too. I like the 1/87 scale stuff now. I picked a bunch of Wikings when I was in Germany. The detail is great. I need to find some enclosed cases from Giovanni or Carney for those (less dusting to do).

A good looking collection.

Enclosed cases are coming, once the weather gets nicer than I'm going to start making some like the Carneys, but only the front will be clear, the rest will all be wood.

The VW's are a together collection, its nice to have a ollection that we both can enjoy. If you want to see a variation in collecting habbits, come visit sometime. Sometimes I question my own sanity :)
