Ship Model Display Cases

Our philosophy is that casing a model is like framing a painting. A properly designed case will not only provide protection, but also enhance the model. As each case is "custom", pricing is determined based on inside dimensions and design options selected. We will be happy to assist you in choosing and designing the proper case for your model.

The photos below only represent options, any combination of options or design can be ordered. For a quote, please provide us with the required ID - inside dimensions.
