The following USS Missouri model is from David Steckel.  The Missouri was ordered by the US Navy in 1940 and was commissioned on June 1944.

It looks great in our custom display case!

Bobby Poole Battleship Missouri

We recently received a few photos of our mirror display case from Bobby Poole and one heck of a great testimonial.

Ron, the case arrived today in perfect condition. The workmanship is very well done especially the delicate work of forming the acrylic edges and joining corners. Spectacular!  I inserted the Battleship Missouri and it immediately gave me a sense of what the total presentation will be like. It encourages me to build in even more detail into the model itself.

Thank you for the prompt and professional service. I have a collection of Brass locomotives that I will be asking you to build cases for soon. I look forward to the relationship.

Ted Bunn’s Heller 1/400 Graf Spee

Incredible model ship work that needs to be shown!

We recently received a few new model ship pictures from Ted Bunn.  As you can see from the pictures, this is artwork that simply needs to be shown.  Below is a Heller Graf Spee in 1/400 scale and a few kind words from Ted!  Gotta love this guy’s artwork!

I finally finished my Heller 1/400 Graf Spee. Thought you might like to see how she looks in the case you made for me. 🙂

My next project will be a resin ship. The Combrig 1/350 SMS Scharnhorst. She’s a WW I German armored cruiser. Should be an interesting project. I’ll let you know when it is time for the case to be made. 😉

All the best,

Ted

Hat Display Case

Sarah Zarrelli sent us a picture of two hats protected in a Grandpa’s Cabinets custom display case.  A custom case is an excellent choice to protect and display antiques or special momentos.

“The case arrived today and it looks great!” – Sarah Zarrelli

Model Planes and Cars Display Case

Our friend Mike Mooney sent us several other models handsomely displayed by Grandpa’s Cabinets!  Take a look at all the models!  As you can see, planes and cars also look great in a Grandpa’s Cabinets model display case.  But don’t just take our word for it…I’ll let Mike tell you in his own words:

As always, the last two cases I got were Perfect and truly enhance the models–could not be happier! I am hoping that showing some more Planes and Cars will entice some of your other customers and new ones to decide to protect their “prizes” and order some more cases from Grandpa’s Cabinets.

Best regards,

Mike Mooney
