You have options for the frame of our glass or acrylic model ship display cases. Some cases have corner pillars that are crafted with the wood or other the frame material. If you prefer not to have the wood frame around the sides of the glass, display cases are available without a corner pillar. This option is often chosen when an unobstructed view of wooden boat models is desired.
Display cases are available with a variety of features to suit your requirements. A glass display case with internal lighting is a great way to draw attention to your wooden boat models and show the intricate detail. Another popular option is a mirrored back or base to show the reverse or underside of the ship models.
Our wooden yacht model cabinets for sale in the UK are available with or without adjustable glass shelving, and with locking doors, internal lighting, and other options.
You can browse the display cases on our website to get an idea of the size, designs and materials that are available and see examples of the cases we have built for collectors, cruise lines, and maritime museums. Please contact us to request a quote for an acrylic or glass display case for your collection. For even more options of dispalying unique ship models, we have recently added the ship model stands to our product range which you can further browse on our website.

Display case 1 – Flat packed with
Perspex / Acrylic (MH)
We offer a handmade
quality model display case, glazed in acrylic with framework in
Tulipwood or MDF to your own dimensions, for you to stain – paint –

Tulipwood is the yellowish greenish wood yielded from the tuliptree.
The wood is very light but very strong and is used in many applications,
including furniture, joinery and moulding. It can also be stained &
polished very easily and is often used as a low-cost alternative to
walnut, cherry & mahogany in furniture making.
The choice of colors
for the base suede are, Light blue - Royal Blue - Bottle Green -
Scarlet - Black. Or it can be left in plain mdf should you wish
to finish the base yourself for a diorama or rail track etc.
The model display cases are flat pack (which helps to keep down the cost
of p&p) and they easily assemble to form a sturdy structure.
