Hi guys l got this neat little display case for my oldest rc car l own! My 1978 Kyosho Eleck Peanuts! and next up is my Mk1 Scorcher that's from 1979. This looks fantastic in this case and its protected from dust etc! The front panel just slides up for easy access too so no need to dismantle the case to get to the car!
I think I will be getting a few more of these but I need the next size up for tamiya's!
I tried to avoid glare in the photos but as you know its tricky.
Hope you like it and comments welcome cheers James.

I use display cases for some of my rarer vintage stuff, and these are great James. Much easier to dust! Loving the Marlboro reds on the seat!!
Nice showcase! Seems like a tight fit.
Good evening my old mate, what a simple yet great idea... dust is the enemy and sadly all my collection is suffering with it at the moment.
Thanks guys. Haha Phil cute those Marlboro cigs mate! I am definitely getting some more display cases too bud! When l can afford them they are not cheap!
@Tamiyastef yeah buddy its like bang on size! I did measure up properly thankfully and knew this but its tight without touching each just!
@justin hello mate you are not wrong dust is the enemy indeed and old cars like this need protection mate the body on this Peanuts is so thin plus they look real pretty in the cases!
Only problem these display cases aren't cheap! This one cost £31 that's not bad but the tamiya's need the next size up £39 each then...lol get one each payday l think! I will only get a few cases for the more special older delicate cars the rest will have to suffer and to be fair some clean of a lot easy the others but damn that dust! Thanks for the comments guys cheers James
£39 is cheap for that size. Can you give a link to where you got them from. I need some more for some 1/12 static stuff!
Vectorsoul on ebay.
Awesome details on the Peanut now!
Thanks buddy coming from you that's a real compliment cheers.
These were snacks for us vintage RC addicts!
It's a bit of a Juwel you've got on a dust-free display.
Thanks Scanox l am loving this little dune buggy and now it will be dust free buddy.
yes thats ace...looks so good. what a car as well. id like to see that in the legendary series or atleast re-re'd.
Yeah Ned it would be neat to see it in the Legendary series, after all this Kyosho started the ball rolling for the rest of them! Maybe a few tweaks and smart box it could be done??
Thanks too mate.
Fantastic detail - how did you spec that mini RR kit box? Great looking piece.
