There are "sooooo" many ways of displaying your diecast collection !

  Over the years that I have collected diecast, I have tried several ways of displaying my collection. The main problem I ran into was space, the second was dust. My wife bought a pack of tooth picks at the local grocery store, that came in an unique clear plastic box. I quickly discovered my little cars fit perfect. I began buying these tooth pick packs like crazy, and it didn't take long to have a small fortune invested at $2.49 each, not to mention having enough tooth picks to last 5 life times. I contacted the tooth pick company and they were kind enough to give me the name and phone number of their plastic box supplier. Buying direct from them at 33 cents a box saved me a bunch of money and solved my two major problems of the dust and space.   


Shadowbox In-wall Display Cases
  AMAC Plastic PVC Boxes

 These little boxes are 1 7/16 X 1 7/16 X 3 5/16 inches. They are manufactured by AMAC Plastics in Sausalito California. Their web address is:  www.amacbox.com .  Their sales phone is:  1-800-852-7158. They have a wide variety of sizes and colors.

Built right into the wall

 I made these dividers about 4" X 4" and framed them right into the wall. Each space would hold two cars in the AMAC boxes. This shadowbox style display is about 10' x 3' and holds about 360 cars in their dust free boxes. This helped out a "GREAT" deal on the space problem.

 Many other manufacturers produce and sell several styles and size display cases. I have found that with a collection as large as mine, I waisted alot of money, because none of them fitted my needs. I designed and built these standing shadowbox style cases also. The box sizes are still 4" X 4", but I chose to display my ols Racing Champion NASCAR cars, stands, and cards in these. The top lifts up to remove a 2' X 4' piece of plexiglass, which also stopped the problem of dust. I also built the shadowboxes to hang on the wall.
