1:18 Coffee Table Lamborghini Garage Diorama Concept

Got tired of just viewing my models from one angle in a display cabinet so went the whole hog and made a 5 dimensional view inside a coffee table.
The roller shutter doors open to allow viewing from all four sides as well as through the glass top.
Been quite a hit with the other diecast collectors out there.

Best regards to all you guys for a happy and safe festive season.

Hi Bug,
Very nicely done, at the second shot I thought, these cats are big in South Africa...(although Felix Domestica is not one of the big five), The advantage is that the models are both visible and dust free, and can be easily changed. Will you strive for equal scale in the future?

I have downloaded three of the shots and put them here directly to keep them for eternity. Do you want me to do all of them?
