What a wonderful, great situation, - to have such beautyful, large and not-too-deep , empty shelves. Shocked
A dream for a collector, WOW cheers

You will find lots and lots of inspiration if you go through the "collection" subjects.

A very good one is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],
where lots of people show their shelves . Not two are the same Very Happy

But this can also be a great subject for telling about experience - good and bad - good advice etc.

Great subject ! I just can`t wait to see what you get out of it bounce bounce bounce Very Happy

Well, i guess, we all need a TV these days, but one that is to big surely not.
That is the problem in many cases, people buy a TV that is much to big for the room in which the TV will be situated.
You need at least 3 meters distance to see clearly what is going on on the TV, 4 meters is even better... Laughing
I still have tube-Tv's in my livingroom and bedroom, which are about 82 cms in diagonal distance, and as long as they are giving me the same clear pictures, they will not be replaced, even though i like the big LCD-, plasma and other modern TV's... Cool
And when it is time to replace them, i will buy one that suits to my livingroom...
For a screen that is 107 cms diagonal you need to have about 5 or 6 meters distance, or you are turning your head from left to the right when you waych TV, haha... geek, same as in a tennis-match from the middle side...

So after all, better put vitrines or shelves with our beloved models, that never will bore us, and you never have to change the channel! cheers

I know several people who don`t own a TV drunken - some are old hippie-types, some are old redneck-types, and for them it is a principle.
Others use their PC as TV Very Happy
I even know of a family who don`t watch TV for religious reasons !

The strange thing is that none of these use the spare room for animal models scratch Shocked Suspect

I don`t watch TV very often, but I must admit I would hate to be without it even if mine is tiny Wink

I watch TV once a week only, when I visit my parents Laughing In the house where I live now, there is a TV that belongs to granpa of my husband but we not watch it because there is no Animal Planet or Nat Geo Wild channels Laughing Laughing Laughing

Rusty, what a great display cabinet! i never would have thought of a CD rack! brilliant! can't wait to see it filled up!

i never even had a TV until a few years ago, when i got one to watch DVDs. i just realized i haven't even watched a DVD for almost a year now, and if i want to, i can now watch DVDs on my new computer, so i am getting rid of the TV. i just don't like TV. Mad

You have many possibilities open, Rusty!
In general, there are two basic approaches to arranging animals - zoological (orders, genera etc., see example [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and zoogeographic (see examples [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). I prefer the latter but it's a matter of taste.

I got them on ebay for about .99 each average. The lady was nice enough to let me make payments and also waited till I was done bidding on all of them.
