DISPLAY CASE

We are perhaps the only company that offers fully assembled display cases.  Since it is made in-house, we are able to offer the best cases at the lowest market prices.  The acrylic is cell cast which is 10 times stronger than glass but half the weight.  Cell cast acrylic is the highest quality acrylic, crystal clear clarity and scratch resistant.  

Since 2006, we no longer use glass for display cases as glass must be either very thin (look cheap) or very heavy.   Glass panels also need a wooden frame to support them.  Also glass cases must be shipped unassembled and assembling them is somewhat difficult. 

Starting in May, 2017, we only make display cases according to our pre-made bases.  Once a particular base size is sold out, we need a couple weeks to restock it (we make about half a dozen at a time), and thus the display case you order will have to wait.  So please order only when you don't see "sold out", unless you are willing to pay now and wait for a couple weeks.

"Received the 2 display cases (for the Flying Fish and the Queen Mary) on Dec 1st....the transporter was terrific also your Shipping Department did a fantastic job regarding the crating and safety aspect of the contents...the Display Cases and likewise are beautifully crafted.  I am looking forward to the completion and shipment of the Bluenose in its display case. I am here with reminding you to make a display case for it also and secure the completed Bluenose into it. Happy Holidays to you; family and Staff.....All The Very Best to THE BEST.
