Default Display Cabinets

Hi guys, don't know if this is the right place for it but thought I'd ask. I'm in the UK, trying to get hold of a display cabinet or two for my models. Because space is limited I need to be able to specify dimensions.

Can anyone recommend a decent place or company that I can use for this purpose?

Many thanks

I have 2 of these and they are very good and worth the money, you can also get a light that fits in the top. Mine are currently used for collectables but when I move house and have some more space I'll be getting a couple for my 40k stuff.

I'll also chime in for the ikea cabinet. I have one and would get another, but every trip I've taken to an ikea, has resulted in me getting lost on the way home

Hi guys, thanks for the replies so far! The Ikea ones look good. However, I've looked through their range and the dimensions don't fit what I'm looking for so for now until I live somewhere with much more space, they're out.

I'm looking for something about 60cm wide, 50cm high and around 20cm deep, if that helps.

I have found this place, though- http://www.sora-shop.com/

Anyone have any experience with them?

Are the Ikea cabinets dust proof? It sounds funny asking it, but I see my local GW using them and the minis inside are HORRIBLY dusty. I don't want to leave some minis inside the cases to find that 2 weeks later covered in a lair of dust. Anyone know how they are?

I use Ikea cabinets too - but the old Bertby ones (check ebay for some near you) and I don't think any Ikea cabinets are truly dust proof - but you could add a seal - in fact I might just go do that.

As for your dimensions - custom is probably the way to go, or butcher an old cabinet and make one?
