I already have finished my ray gun cabinet, only a few details have to be made, but I want to share my new armory.

The two first pics is the two choices of background that I made for the cabinet, my wife made his choice and I agree with her desition. :D

The second one is a background from apple mac, it looks like computer desktop :lol:

I need to hide the heads of the poles, and reposition of the tin cosmic ray gun.

Very nice! I've never seen a display quite like yours... Well executed, and the backdrop really lets the guns pop (no pun intended).

Excellent job on the display. I had not thought about that type of display for mine except that I would need walls. You have a nice selection of guns as well.

thanks to all for your kind words!.

My wife when saw the pieces before to be assembled, said that was too big, where do you planned to put that?, but when she saw the cabinet finished, she said, Ok it´s cool, not bad after all. :blush:

Its not to dificult to do, the hard part is the acrilic box, but I made the drawing of that I wanted and it sent it to build. I wanted a very clean box with acrilic hinges

The background is a multiperforated panel of compressed wood.

To hold the rayguns I used an 1 inch aluminium poles (the ones that uses for papers).

The background is printed in adhesive vinyl.

I placed the guns and put it marks with felt tip marker in the holes to fit the ray guns. Then place the printing and screw it on the poles in the holes marked.

I send you some pics from details. If someone is interested in the drawing of the box, I can put an imagen.

Greetings

Very nice display! I like the use of the aluminum screw posts. I have used acrylic rods with rubber o-rings on my displays but I think your aluminum posts look great.
