    I’ve been making great progress this week on my 1/6 phone booth for Blitzway Bill and Ted. I still have to finish the top and door and add the lights.

    Have you though about making a TARDIS phone booth as a possible future project @Destructimis Prime?

    I've got a custom one made out of actual wood really heavy. Think the windows are actual glass. Has all the lights and some sounds. I got it years before the big chief one came out and probably at half the price.

    Do you have paper guides or will you post pics of how you make the sliding folding door? That's the only thing I think I'd have trouble with. I'm sure I could make the rest.

    Along with the rest of the collection. The 8th doctor will be replaced by the Big Chief version if BBTS ever gets my preorder from 3 years ago in stock.(getting really annoyed as every other place seems to have it in stock but them) BBTS always seems to be the last to get anything lately.

    Same with mine. I'm not a 1/6 scale collector by any means, however Mondo's Mr. Freeze and Skeletor did catch my attention. They just stand together on a separate shelf apart from the vast amount of Transformers I have. :lol

    A quick question.

    Has anyone here re-purposed a used fish tank for their own 1/6th display case and stood it upright? The reason why I'm asking: Saw a used fish tank to be discarded in an alleyway when returning back from my daily walks around the golf course.

    Might attempt to try it out, however I may not end up doing it.

    If you can make it work for you, then there's no real "wrong" way of going about it.

    The reason you might not see it so often, though, is because the access is all wrong for display. Usually, the reason for a glass cube display is to keep your collection free of dust. But fish tanks are usually solid-built, and completely open on top. So the only way for that to fully enclose the collection is to turn it upside-down, or put the opening against a wall, which makes for awkward access and relies on the bottom of the tank being presentable, which it may not be.

    I have an old tank and I've seen someone here use tanks for display before (I think it's in the main display thread in the TF section). I've thought about using it but the issue is what @mx-01 archon brought up. You could simply use it as an open display with it turned on its side. IN the end, my old tank has been sitting outside for years and I have never gotten around to repurposing it for toy display use and probably never will.

    Mind you, if you don't care about enclosure, and just use it as a two-tiered glass "shelving unit", then I see no problem with that.
