Riddle me this. When your cave is too big for your curio, what do you turn it into?

Kandor...got the acrylic box from https://www.casesforcollectibles.com near Cincinnati. Ordered Monday arrived today via UPS
I got the MDF base with mirror back wall. There are other options. Also found out they could make 1/2" increments. The size is 19" x 16" by 9-1/2". I have about 1/2" clearance on any side.

I don't think we can openly talk price buy My options ran up the cost with the MDF base and Mirrored side. Their configurator will give you pricing, and they use UPS for shipping.

I'm not sure, but at almost $1,000 a pop, I'd assume so.
Music. BAT! Music.

Last month one of them sold for under $500, so keep your eyes peeled.

I started playing around with the cave. I asked what was opposite the cave in another thread and the answer surprised me, because the answers were based on the sound stage. I was really wondering where the trophy room, the older vehicles, etc were kept. So I started looking for 1/50 scale accessories. Keith Mayo’s forum on Facebook had me pull the trigger on a 1940’s Batmobile and a giant novelty Penny. Here’s some pics of the modified cave.
