I suggested somewhere that, while even a 1/72 Lancaster model is a large object, a way to display it without taking up too much space on a table, shelf etc, mounting it on a wall might be suitable. I have now done that (see attachment):

I think it looks rather good, and much better than being in a box stowed away somewhere. As for the 1/32 model soon to arrive at ScaleModel Shop, the only suggestion I have for that would be to move to a bigger house!

Nice idea Steve, and it would look even better with an aerial shot of a city below it.

It looks good Steve. I can just imagine a 1/32 scale one right there .....

Here's what it would look like (after I put back my desk clutter which I edited out in the first pic)!

Actually without the desk clutter at the bottom and a city below it would look great!!!
