I thought I had to share with you a novel way to display your 1/43
collection. These wall shelves are made from old dresser drawers that I had cut into two thin shelf units. Then he added doors so I could keep them dust free but I could see them. I added the shelves and stained them. But I'm still considering a different background too. The doors stay closed with magnets. Of course I've saved all of these boxes in a big box in the closet.
