I have an update! The case is still not finished. Tomorrow the electrician is finally installing the remote control LED dimmer. The dimmer was constantly on backorder everywhere And before the electrician is done the carpenter can't finish his work. And before the carpenter has everything installed the painter can't do his work. So This is what needs to happen now:

- Instal LED dimmer
- Instal top of the case + instal some bits and bobs
- Paint the top part and the floor
- Clean up paint on the glass.

BUT I did get to put everything in. It was such a big task and it's not done yet. This is just the preliminary setup. I have found that I need some more shelves. I've decided to fit a couple of halve shelves on top to display small bots.

enough talk!





The bad news is that I still have a box of Binaltech/ Alternators, 2 boxes of Gundam. A bag of Micromasters and a box with their accessories. And a huge bag of minicons!

Shuffling around the displays will help this a lot but I won't have any display room for trailers and such...

Yes an update!

The guy that came by to install the LED dimmer needed an entire afternoon to install the thing. First try nothing, second try with a different transformer gave a strobe light effect and then the third try with another transformer it was finally done. BUT the electric buzz was so loud that I couldn't agree with him leaving it like this. So I had him pack his things and come back another time when he has a solution.

So he did and came back a week later with what he was certain was a silent transformer. He installed it and as soon as we switched it on it started to buzz. Not so much as with the one before but still an annoying electrical buzz. (Like a mosquito buzz) You don't hear it when the dimmer is off or fully on. But as soon as you dim the lights. bzzzzzzzzzzzz

So we agreed on me using some leftover sound-insulationfoam and having the carpenter close the hole and then check on the sound. If it's still on an annoying level I'm just going with on/off and no dimmer.

The carpenter is here now finishing the top and making some last adjustments. Then painting again tomorrow.

After that I get to do the 'final' display installation! and then I can finally do some proper pics.

That is freaking amazing. I love the unusual design with the corner element. That gives you more room to display your awesome collection and creates a focal point for your really big stuff like Fort Max. My favorite element would be the side spotlights though I think. They keep everything more evenly lit so you can see the figures on the bottom more easily. Toss are exactly want I need in my cases, but would be too expensive to install.

That is one seriously impressive display and you should be applauded for how professional and clean it looks. Nicely done.

I picked up some frames from my local store and started framing some cool comic covers and animation cels.


These are actually 2 foil comics. By accident I have two...


Some of my BWII and BWneo animation cels. I have some 20 more but not all of them are good for display. I'll frame some more in the coming week.
