Thanks Jesse, those do look interesting and I'll definitely look into them. Basically the shelves I have are 12" deep, so a base section, one about two inches high or so and another twice that is what I'm after. The shelves hold six figures deep with stands and about 7 rows per foot, so 42 figures per foot. Eight foot shelves should hold about 336 figures total. I figure I have well over that, but two shelves should take care of the vintage, modern and Kubricks/bustups (I hope).
Anyway, some pictures. I did finish the trim (less doing some touch up work around the nails and joints, but that can be done later. Quickly first a pair of pictures of the shed (8x10) and the deck (16x16 - still needs the railings finished):
So the room itself ended up being basically 9x13 with a slight jog near the door that eats up a couple of feet of width. Lots of bedrooms around in new houses these days are 9x9, so down the road this is good as a fifth bedroom in the house when we sell. We did the paint and the design for the most part as a bedroom with that in mind, though I'd have to add a closet.
Towards the door from inside the room:
Looking into the room from outside:
I've started putting some stuff out already and it will be slow going. First up is vinty stuff and some titaniums (and iPod). With due respect to guys that have their stuff lined up like that, I'm not a big fan, so the need for the risers to display a little better. I'm not as ambitious as Rob, but I'd like to have clearer views of things.
The other end where I'm going to display my droids in this display I absconded with from Walmart. You can see some Kuby's and other stuff in there. After the vintage stuff though, I was most anxious to get the Simpsons stuff out. I hadn't seen any of it in so long and I really missed Homer.
Some Simpsons shots, if only to taunt Scott, who I still cannot believe he parted with that stuff. I'm a bit amiss about the display of this stuff as I have a number of playsets not even up there and really no room. I'm thinking more shelves on another wall with way more clearance so I can do a bit of stacking. I'm missing a few Groundskeeper Willie figures I'll have to pick up as well.
By far the worst part is realizing I've used up about a third of the shelf space for roughly four boxes. I've got easily 40 more to go
So more shelves or something will obviously be in order. I've moaned about Ikea stuff before, but it will be a while for that stuff, so in the interim I'll have to make due. I'm probably having the most grief from how to display my diecast stuff. A Bertby would be ideal.
So I'll plug away at this stuff over the next while and update as stuff gets out.
