Where to Display Your Models

There are plenty of places where model displays can be utilized. Ideas include:

Hobby stores: These locations are often packed with model kits of all experience levels. With so many offerings, model displays are crucial.

Toy stores: LEGO® is more popular than ever—and kids love perusing the aisles looking for the latest releases.

Collectibles stores: For models that have been discontinued, limited release, or special editions, retail locations that specialize in or carry collectibles are the place to go.

Home offices: Model hobbyists might display their most treasured creations in their home office.

Basements: For those that have an abundance of models to display and work on, setting up a variety of model displays in the basement often makes sense.

Business lobbies: Why not show off impressive models in the waiting area or lobby of your business? You'll just need model displays that can keep them protected.

Club spaces: Sports clubs (golf, yachting, etc.) display trophies and memorabilia models as décor. Also, many schools have clubs (like 3D printing) where kids can create their own models. Those rooms will need displays and shelving to keep everyone's work organized and safe.

Model Display Ideas

Signage. Retail locations will need signage for product information. Our shelf talker sign holders fit on model display counters and model display shelves and are constructed of durable, clear acrylic. The 8" x10" slant back plastic sign holder is designed for better viewing and can be placed in front of model display cabinets and model display pedestals. If you have a larger location, acrylic floor standing poster stands can help customers locate select areas of the store.

Model display cases. Our 4' wide wooden lighted floor standing display case with sliding doors and mirrored back can hold a variety of models in different shapes and sizes. The hex shaped showcase display tower with lighting and shelves is another stunning option—and no assembly is required! With both, the doors will keep everything safe, while the lights will put a spotlight on the models.
