Ikea Coffee Table!

Recommended Posts

So who will be the first to purchase one of these for that falcon diorama you know you always wanted in the lounge!!

Not sure on the depth of the display area but the whole thing is 36cm high so guess its at least 20cm.

 

Happy dioramaing, one and all.

Why don't you get one for yourself and do a review for us?  :giggle:

Perhaps not for the Millenuim Falcon. 

But I think I'll be needing something like this for my Revell 1/144 An-225. :D

The problem with getting one means going to IKEA and that will mean spending more than the £60 for the table!!

 

Would make a great starting point for a Hoth or Yavin dio.

One Victor would be OK but not sure about a second, flying, one.

 

PS  37cm high?  That's not a coffee table but a foot rest/shinbanger.

Would that be big enough for a DeAgonstini MF?

 

I just bought my first Detolf yesterday and was a bit disappointed at its size, particularly the height - it was smaller than I expected. I've got some extra shelves on order.

There's some interesting stuff in the "Sammanhang" range. That coffee table looks like it is begging for a roundy roundy N gauge layout.

Model railway or figure display?

Hmmm, now that's very interesting. Only $70 here in the US.  27.5 X 27.5 inches - most large 1/72 aircraft would fit in that.

 

A 1/72 B-36 has a span of 97cm. The diagonal of the case would be 99cm - it would  (perhaps) just fit.........

 

Definite potential there!

Presumably you could buy more than one and leave off the end panels so you could butt them together and have a bigger display!

Just what i need x4 (luckily for my bank account Ikea aren't over here).....

They do delivery though, not sure of the cost though, but where else are you going to get a display case that large for that money

I think they will, they get delivered to Ikea from manufacturers they use from all over the world.Anything broken/missing contact Ikea and they will get you a replacement, their after sales is very good.

I have two of their metal display cases, they only come with two shelves, I contacted them to ask if I could purchase some extra shelf supports (they clip into the sides) they sent me 16 free of charge.When I get around to it I'll get some additional clear acrylic shelves cut
