Display Case for the Bandai Millennium Falcon 1/144
I was hoping to move on from posting about the Millennium Falcon. But as fate would have it, the display case that I ordered for it just arrived in the mail today and I thought to make a quick post about it.

I got this through Shopee straight from China for about $8.00, but I'm sure you can find the same thing on Amazon or Aliexpress. Just search for a Perspex or acrylic display case and be mindful of the dimensions. For the 1/144 Millennium Falcon, the 30 cm x 20 cm x 20 cm size is an almost perfect fit.
The case is made of 5 interlocking clear acrylic sheets with a sixth black one as the base. Both sides of each acrylic sheet are covered by a protective film that you'll have to peel off to reveal the clear plastic. While the film does a great job of preventing scratches in transit, the static electricity generated when you peel it off pulls in so much dust to the sheet itself. It's easy enough to wipe down at least. But in the long run, I'm not sure how well the case will keep dust out because of the small gaps between each panel. Sealing the edges with glue shouldn't be too difficult, however.
All in all, I'm quite pleased with the case. If you're looking for a cheap display case for your Millennium Falcon 1/144 or some other model, this gets my recommendation.
