iDisplayIt is a UK-based company that manufactures a very large range of acrylic display cases for virtually every LEGO set you'd want to put on show.
The case comes flat-packed and requires assembly. The kit consists of six laser cut 3mm acrylic sheets which are shipped with their protective backing sheets in place to prevent damage in transit, plus 8 fixings to hold the sides together.
The base is black, and slightly larger than the base of the model, to ensure it doesn't look cramped inside.
The bottoms of the sides have protrusions that fit into the slots on the base to keep it in place.
To assemble the case, small plastic inserts are fitted into cutouts in the side panels, into which the front and back panels are screwed. An Allen key is provided so you won't need to hunt round for one.
Once the sides are joined together the top is simply placed on top. On larger cases it is also attached using screws but on this smaller case it just rests on top, which is fine because it's a tight fit and doesn't move about.
It's a difficult thing to photograph against a white background!
This particular case costs £22.50. Prices very according to their size, of course, so for the largest sets you can be looking at upwards of £200. However they are very well made and if you're looking for a means of showing off your favourite sets while keeping them dust-free they are just the job.
One scenario I can see this particular one being useful is in an open-plan office environment: you could show your love for LEGO and architecture while keeping fingers and dust off your beloved model!
