I have been bitten by the bug of collecting the Dragons and Geminis. While it's nice to look at them individually, I'm getting sick of pulling them out of the box, and I want to keep them pristine.
I'm looking for display case ideas. It's nice to have them out for view but protected and free of dust. In my own mind the ideal thing would be small stackable transparent cubes of some sort, but I have no idea if these exist.
I went to Wal-Mart and Target and did not really see anything that suits the purpose. I suppose Lowe's or Home Depot might have stuff.
I know I can't be the first one with this 'problem' - any ideas?

One person I know uses transportable hard cases sold at a shop called "The Games Workshop". Its a store that sells those small Warhammer paintable models. Although this isn't good for display, it is great for transport and ease of access. The ones my friend has are foam filled with comparments big enough for the 1/400 models (they use them to put their tanks away in).

I set my models on a shelf. It's on the top (shelf's laying on its side going horizontally as about four feet up, the ceiling starts), so nothing obstructing the viewpoint. The box is displayed behind the models, and the planes are all at the same angle (even the airplane light that's on during the day for show), with the exception of my lone 1:200 model, a Dornier 328 Jet sitting in the corner angled differently so you can read the text on the stand on the other side; it's in the corner, so it doesn't look odd. With the exception of that said model, three are 1:400's (NW DC-9-30/40/50) and the rest are 1:500's ranging in size from a US Dash-8-100 to the surprisingly long DL MD-90 in order from smallest to biggest.
