I wanted to display my
ON30 models and I hope that I'm not repeating
what someone else has done, but I haven't
seen this on the forum before.
You can get them at WalMart around the toys.
I just used diluted white glue and water,
dried used tea leaves and a few bits of gravel
from the yard and hand layed track.


Sorry this should be the first pic.
the display does not come with track

That railtruck is from Backwoods Miniatures.

sn3forme Posted - 06/26/2009 : 9:52:51 PM
John that is a great looking
truck, who makes that model?
Thanks for all the feedback, I never saw any
of those display bases at Michael's or Hobby Lobby I'll have to keep a sharp eye out for them.

I did something similar with a memento box from Michael's.

Great idea and a nice way to display your collection - both protecting them from dust and enquiring fingers.
wesleybeks Posted - 06/26/2009 : 3:11:19 PM
Thats a cool idea
LLIAXTEP Posted - 06/25/2009 : 11:08:17 PM
Great idea, looks good too

BigLars Posted - 06/25/2009 : 12:04:15 PM
Great little display, I picked on of these up at Hobby Lobby as well (a little longer).

If you watch Hobby Lobbys sale adds these are often listed as 40% off or you can use one of their on line coupons for get 40% off. They are on sale this week for 50% off.

Here is the 40% off coupon you can use for something else. http://www.hobbylobby.com/weekly/weekly.cfm?page=2

Yep- works pretty slick! I got 2 different size of these display cases at Hobby Lobby- I think $10 a piece- and used a length of Bachmann EasyTrack. I just painted the edge of the "ballast" and the rest of the display stand- sprinkled on some ground cover while it was wet, and PRESTO- nice little display!

Both WalMart, Hobby Lobby, and probably others (plus MicroMark) have these, and there are different sizes available.

I really like the Porter and the tool car- great conversation piece. Nice work!

Carl, that's a great looking quick and easy way to put out a display for sure. I like it!
Geezer Posted - 06/25/2009 : 08:24:09 AM
Pretty kool!!! Neat idea......
Tyson Rayles Posted - 06/25/2009 : 06:54:56 AM
Makes a nice display! I could probably build a N scale layout in that thing!
