Display Capsule Acrylic Tube for 1:18 Scale Models

Custom made display cases

SilentAutos has released a stunning new range of custom made to order handmade display cases including the Display Capsule Acrylic Tube for 1:18 scale models, to showcase your prized collection of your favourite diecast models. We are always working on innovative new ideas to give our clients the best possible service in terms of selection, creativity, choice and price.

Unique tubular design

Unlike the majority of cases on the market today, we've allowed extra space for improved fitting around the model to ensure a better fit. The unique tubular design allows minimum light refraction to give maximum viewing from all angles. This extra dimension allows improved spatial awareness giving the viewer the illusion that the model is 'floating on air'. There is also an option for a rotational base allowing the model to be tilted at an angle, allowing better display.

With its clean lines and an uninterrupted view of your favourite diecast car model, this innovative design takes 'display' to a whole other level. With its modern, timeless feel, it's ideal for both old vintage and classic model cars as well as the new streamlined and rounded modern cars of today.

Highest grade clear cast acrylic

For specification: the case is made from the highest grade clear cast acrylic, with an overall length of 440mm; the tube is 220mm in diameter weighing just under 1.5kg (without a model).

Please note there are two bases available:

Option 1 is a fixed base with an all in one end cap to elevate the display case 8mm off a flat surface.
Option 2 is an independent stand the capsule rests on, allowing the tube to rotate and display your model at an angle for a different feel. This tube display can also rest on its end to give the display a different presence.

Further options available are to display the stand:

Option A uses laser cut components to stack these capsules on top of one another to create a clear tube wall of model cars.
Option B provides a 90-degree sidewall component to hang the capsule from a wall to resemble a 3D hanging picture frame.

 

Laser engraving option

The Display case capsule offers versatility and is well suited for use both in the home, office and showroom as well as show events and display areas in retails markets. We also offer a free bespoke laser engraving option for your own personal message or favourite model marque laser etched directly onto the clear acrylic platform.

We are a small team of professional model makers with over 18 years experience in the film industry, building miniature models and effects for the big camera. We work from a state of the art workshop dedicated to prototyping new ideas and pushing the boundaries in the model world. With the aid of our 3D printers and top spec laser machines, we can realise our ideas physically in 3D, developing and fine tuning our masterful pieces.
