CIG did a run of them a few years ago; I want to say they made a couple thousand of them.

Given how poorly they sold I would be surprised if they ever did another run or any other models, if I remember correctly they ended up selling the last few hundred at cost just to get rid of them

After thinning away several duplicate items, a display clean and reshuffle AND some new LED lighting!, I thought I'd share some pics!

Looks amazing! Thanks for sharing!

How are the LEDs setup? Just along the front shooting straight in towards the case or are they angled? Also, just the light in front or are there others? It's hard to tell with the reflections. Thanks!

Vertically full length facing rearward and a strip along the top. Pretty simply actually. Same as before but now physically longer strips with brighter whiter light.

Also got the waterproof strips this time as the clear domed coating helps disperse the light better.

The low power setting is now almost as bright as the high power setting from the old LEDs! Full brightness is crazy now! These photos were taken with the medium setting.

Excellent, thanks. Looks really good and how I want to setup my cases but there is not a lot of space between the shelf and doors..need to find very thin led strips.

You've done a single vertical strip running down the front right hand side?

I've been considering getting a pair to run then down the front two corners and shine them inward style of lighting on my cabinet.

Oh hey sorry, there are two vertical strips on each cabinet and a strip along the top.

Excellent displays spanner!  Your displays were originally the reason I switched back over to stay on this awesome Macross forum permanently.

Here's an update to my 1/60 display.  It has everything I wanted to put in one detolf.

nice display spanner...liking the heft of the RA holding its own in the midst of the valks...plus the individual displays of the 30,31 and 262 on top of the other in a row, fits that lil corner space you have there..

Been collecting for just over a year now (except for the 2 vintage pieces).  Still a tiny collection compared to some of the vets here, but I've gotten all the previous releases I wanted. I told myself I'd only get the Focker vf-1S when I started (new collectors, you've been warned :lol:).IMG_20170916_131502.thumb.jpg.a534329b163df0fad51e4224eeebadc3.jpgIMG_20170916_131659.thumb.jpg.dcd5ccd34e23599dcd6b285667f05a6a.jpgIMG_20170916_131914.thumb.jpg.c511b1e00bced15710ad2c5ba7bf0eed.jpgIMG_20170916_131856.thumb.jpg.8194bfc262477e826405253b082e6f01.jpgIMG_20170916_132010.thumb.jpg.fc43c4603b1e991a79c7de237524a855.jpg

Who around here DIDN'T say that back when it aaaalll started with the 1:48's???  :lol::lol::lol:

I didn't.

Because I only started last year, and I knew damn well at that point it wasn't stopping with only a few.

Yeah, I started about a year ago as well, and first told myself just one HM-R; I'm now well over 10. So far I've kept it to just one 1/60 V2. We'll see how long that lasts.

Anyway, nice collection @HardlyNever. Is that a Matchbox "Veritech" on the top?
