    What a great display Dano, nice one!!!!
    It makes my display of loads of rounds on the shelf look boring.
    Looks like you put in a lot of hard work there.
    Thanks for showing it.

    figure it out

    Aw Rick, You'll figure it out, I just happened to have an extra un-used corner in the basement and wife (Teresa) actually help me build it. Thimbles might be a tad extreme, but please never ever start in on the beanie babies!!! All the best. Dano

    one more shot

    I wanted to add 1 last "in the trench" shot as it shows much of the recently traded for stuff I just got and had to do a tad of re-arranging to make all the s___ fit. So here it is....Dano

    Looks great Dano. Much more authentic than neatly arranged on shelves.

    sizing out

    Thanks Guys for the positive and encouraging comments, however too many more items and I will be sized out of it. I already have clearance from the boss lady to add a dugout, and without canted walls should be able to squeeze some serious display space especially for bigger stuff. Would not trade my wife for anything in this world. She says the basement is mine to do as I see fit. So i'm already collecting materials, and of course it will be built GREEN, from scrap materials and stuff that can be procured free locally. This time roof will be logged to simulate a bomb proof. Possibilities are boundless. Best Dano
