コメント Collecting on small space - what I did to improve my mood

    aquacapsak2ヶ月前#78764091I need to invest in risers myself. Would you be cool with doing a tuto for the foamcore risers??? Is there a max weight they can hold?? I have so many figures and this would help tremendously with getting them all in view without losing space or views.

    I may consider a tutorial in the near future if I feel I have time, but for now I'll link this video to teach you the basics:

    www.youtube.com...

    The tutorial starts at 1:50. My one piece of advice is that if you intend to make something too large to maneuver in the area you want to put it in, you may need to partially disassemble that piece of furniture. My stair-step riser is made to fit almost perfectly in my Detolf, but it requires partial disassembly of the Detolf to put it in or take it out. Keep that in mind.

    TBH I actually have no idea how much weight they can hold, as I only keep light Gunpla on them. You can always put extra foamcore walls inside to reinforce the strength. Sorry I can't be more help there; it may take some trial and error to figure out if your figures are too heavy.

    Good luck!

    figuresuki2ヶ月前#78764817I have a display case but it has gaps around the doors so wont keep dust of as i would like.This reminds me of someone that owned a glass display case. They cut thin strips of foam and lined all the gaps with them. Kept nearly all the dust out, while also letting a little air still go through, so that the figures had less issues with resin fumes or plasticizers settling on the figures. (a completely sealed case or box leaves figures without any way to air-out. sometimes it's a problem.)

    THANK YOU

    i am literally in the process of going through all of my possessions right now, because i have absolutely no more space for anything. and unfortunately I'll be bringing more items into this tiny apartment (not hobby related) because of personal reasons. and then of course I do have a couple more new figures I want to buy this year too.

    these ideas might be helpful and at the very least, the article was encouraging. :)

    These are great tips! I'm also envious when I see displays where someone has a lot of space to use, since that's not the case for me yet... learning to work with what you currently have is very important.

    Interesting to see how others solved their display problems.
    For me i like to keep the boxes, i have attic space so they can be packed up and stored if i ever need them.
    For taking figures out of boxes i prefer to buy prize figures or second hand then i don't worry about them getting damaged or dust.
    For my more expensive ones i don't have my display set up yet how i want to set them up
    I bought acrylic square display boxes for some of the better figures i have out at those are pretty dust proof and i can put them onto of the bookcases that i have.
    I have a display case but it has gaps around the doors so wont keep dust of as i would like.
    Considering a custom build to go with the shelves so i can get what i want.
    Thanks for sharing.

    MajesticOtaking2ヶ月前#78762799It's cool that you've found a way to organize your stuff that works for you. Something I might point out, though, is that no matter what furniture you use, if the figures are the same-ish height, the back row will always get covered up if you don't use risers.
    Risers are a serious lifesaver, and they allow you take advantage of deeper and taller spaces. You can get acrylic risers online, or you can make your own. These pictures from my own collection are outdated, but I previously made my own stair \-step and custom shaped risers out of foam core (then I covered them in a red velvety fabric) to improve my Beargguy display. You can see everything on the shelf now, even though many of the items are the same height. I highly recommend risers if you want to be able to effectively display more in a smaller space!

    cyclo1952ヶ月前#78762616Would you mind sharing where you got the acrylic from?
    Sure, but I guess it wont help you much because it's a german site: www.plattenzusc...

    Even if it is within the same country, the shipping costs will be quite high because of the irregular size. I think I have also seen some hardware stores which offer arcylic glass cut as you wish. But I don't know if they also drill holes.

    Your raisors look great. Somehing like that is what I want to put on my brown shelf. Hmm, the raisers for individual figures are a very interesting idea. I think I can use that in some corners of my showcases. Thanks for sharing!

    With limited room and a growing collection, you'll always have to reorganize from time to time. To me it looks like you found a good solution. I like the DIY Showcases, especially the white one. I'm in the middle of reorganizing my room too, so this might be a good Idea, especially for bigger scales.

    I'm aggreeing with a lot of your tips, especially tip 5. - I only keep the most fragile & expensive things in a glass cabinet. Mainly because of my dog. Not because he'd chew on anything, but because he's really clumsy. :D I think some of the cheaper figures are actually more durable. I'm really careful with my figures, but my dog ran against a shelf once, cause he was too focused on bringing me his toy. A few figures fell down, but nothing happened. I'm sure that a lot of my more expensive scales wouldn't have survived a fall out of this height.
